Netflix is getting ready to release a significant update, but it’s not what you think.
It’s possible that NETFLIX may reveal the next big wave of content coming to its streaming service, and it’s not what you expect.
At the moment, being a Netflix subscriber is a wonderful experience. In addition to its massive collection of new and old movies and TV programs, the streaming behemoth revealed Monday that it will soon be offering an altogether new type of content. Yes, Netflix appears to be on its path to become the top entertainment destination available by foraying into video games for the first time.
Within the next year, customers will have access to a game library in addition to the usual movie and TV options. The transfer has been anticipated for months and is now all but confirmed after Netflix grabbed a famous gaming executive. Mike Verdu previously worked for EA Games’ mobile division as well as Facebook’s Oculus virtual reality gaming platform.
Documentaries and stand-up comedy specials, for example, will very certainly be featured as a new part. What is the most enjoyable aspect? Netflix will not charge members any additional fees to use its gaming, according to Bloomberg.
A lot of things are still unknown to us. Netflix has yet to reveal which games will be included or how many will be available. There are also no indications as to whether Netflix plans to develop its own games in the same way that it does with movies and television episodes. Fans of Netflix’s successful original series will undoubtedly be excited by the premise.
Netflix isn’t the first streaming service to experiment in gaming. In 2018, the interactive “choose your own adventure” film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch was a huge hit, while hit shows Stranger Things and Money Heist have already had their own games. When Netflix was merely a DVD rental service, it used to deliver video games to your door.
Experts believe the bold move is an attempt to entice customers away from rival streaming services like Amazon Prime and Disney Plus. While Prime does offer game access, there are just five titles available each month.
On the other hand, Sony, Google, Apple, and Microsoft all have their own video game subscription services: Xbox Game Pass, like Playstation Now, gives you access to over 100 games for your console and PC. The Nintendo Switch is wonderful for retro players because it offers a lot of NES and SNES classics, but Apple Arcade and Google Play Pass are only available for mobile devices.
It’s a no-brainer, though, with 208 million members. “Brinkwire News in a Nutshell.”
