lol for $50 a year? Trust me, it's worth it. I know I'm probably gonna sound like a fanboy right now but I'm really not. I always watch Netflix on my 360, I tried it on PS3 and the difference was like night and day. The video quality, the speed/performance of the app and just how easy it was to use, it's just better on xbox. Even Youtube is better on xbox, so I'm thinking that CR is going to be better on xbox too.

You're right, you do sound like a fanboy.

That's nice ... but I think you guys need to put some more polish on the PS3 app before you move on to other consoles. It still crashes and freezes on me all over the place.

I've got to say, I really admire Crunchyroll for trying to provide their content on as many platforms as possible, there aren't many providers that do this as well as they do.
Also, will I need Xbox Live Gold for this?

Hate to burst your fanboy bubble, but unless Microsoft themselves are helping with the app, things will most likely be a buggy mess to begin with. Unless they actually just port the app to the 360, in which case all the flaws of that version will likely come with it.

Also both the tech and personal experience shows me you are lying about the Netflix app, while yes it does work better on one system, the difference isn't that big. As for what system it works better on, that is being the PS3. Not surprising since if you look at the tech the PS3 compared to the 360, you will see the that PS3's tech is better suited for streaming video.

That's great news, BUT.... it really needs to be in HD.

I haven't owned an SD TV in many years, and SD video looks dreadful on a large HDTV. The Xbox is an HD console, so feed it HD video!

The App is easy to fix on the PS3, as when it quits working, I just turn off my PS3 then turn it back on.

Xbox's media apps take a lot longer to get into, if you have to reboot the system it also takes a while more than with a PS3.

However, I use my xbox more for games and dvds, and only play exclusive games on the PS3, and have just recently been using it for the App.

But having the App on both systems would be nice since there are people who only have one system, and not both.

lol I'll admit, after reading your post I went back and compared the two. The PS3 version does load faster, video quality is pretty much the same imo and they both support 1080p video streaming. Your right, the difference between the two isn't as BIG as I made it look in my last post and it really comes down to personal preference. When I made that post earlier I was going off of what I experienced while I was watching Breaking Bad. I wasn't lying about anything, my experience at that time was better on 360. Like I said above, it comes down to personal preference and I still prefer to watch Netflix on my 360 mainly because of the Kinect features.

Anyway, I don't want to start a flame war, so back to what this thread is really about. I'm glad CR is coming to 360, I'm looking forward to it and can't wait to try it out
