PS3 Netflix: List of Problems so Far

Yesterday we asked you for your brief user reviews after trying out the new PS3 Netflix application without the need for a disc, but now we have a new report for you to read, one which lists all of the current problems so far.

As reported from Engadget, there seems to be a fairly big issue for PS3 users trying to use Netflix with an imported system. As things stand, the new Netflix only works with a North American PS3, so those who are trying to access it with a different region PS3 are getting locked out.

Luckily, Netflix is already on the case and have stated that an update will be on the way to fix this problem – but it still doesn’t solve the immediate problem of no netflix on different PS3 consoles.

Engadget also highlight other issues with the service, including problems when Netflix requires you to have a new PSN user ID, and the fact that some users are seeing a completely different UI to others – bizarre.

Lastly, and perhaps the most important to some, is that there seems to be some concern over video quality, and if Netflix movies play in 1080i or 1080p.

Engadget has provided video and screenshot proof of the problems listed above, and they have already found some solutions to some of them. Let us know if you have been experiencing any of the problems, and if it is affecting your service or not.
