What do you get if you combine "The Minority Report" and Dungeons & Dragons? The best thing ever! Duh. If only you could have your own dice and have the screen read the result. Seriously, my dragon skin bag full of dice is wicked jealous of the virtual die.

Netflix on the Xbox 360


There is news this week that in November 2009 the Netflix streaming service will be coming to a PS3 near you (here and here).

That piqued my curiosity as Allison and I had recently signed up for Netflix and the streaming service is currently active on the Xbox 360.

You see, our nearby Blockbuster closed and we're stuck with Hollywood Video. They charge $4.39 for new release rentals, so for the $9 that Netflix charges, we can get about 4 movies/month in the mail for the same price as 2 movies at Hollywood.

What I didn't expect to really find useful was the download shows/movies that Netflix offers. Sure, it's nice to think that I'd watch programs on my computer, but really, who wants to snuggle down with his wife to watch TV on a 19" computer screen? Well, not me, that's who!

Today, however, I decided to give the Xbox 360 Netflix app a try. The first step was to download it, which was a breeze (instructions here). In fact, it was really cool. I got an activation code on my TV that I entered into Netflix's website and within a few seconds, my Xbox responded with the message that all systems were go. Very slick.

I now had access to Netflix's entire library of "Watch Instantly" programs, which includes such awesomeness as Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Law and Order SVU (10th season). Dung...dung. Yes, I'm watching it as I write this.

What's more, I can browse Netflix adding programs to my "instant queue" and they'll be ready on my 360, or, I can just browse on the 360 and play my selection right away.

Yup. Right away. Within 30 seconds, my show is playing. That's frikin' cool. What's even better is that the $9 I'm paying to Netflix is now not just a good value for DVDs, but is a great value when you have access to an entire library of content.

Speaking of entire libraries of content, do you know about the LunaPass? It's our subscription service which gives you instant access to over 200 Lunabean walkthroughs and strategy guides. Seriously, I didn't plan that, it just fit in really well.

Oh, and don't bother me...I'm watching TV! I mean Netflix. I mean TV. Whatever, it's all one now, isn't it?
