Eager to consolidate all of your entertainment media into one cohesive account? Hoping that one universal account would be Netflix? You might have to put that idea on pause.
During a fairly optimistic earnings report, Netflix confirmed having re-gained 600,000 of 800,000 customers it had lost during its previous quarter. They also announced that their plans for entering the game-rental market have now been put on hold -- perhaps indefinitely -- due to strong competion among its industry peers; namely, Blockbuster Online, Redbox, and, of course, Gamefly.
Clearly, the industry is moving in a different direction -- especially if OnLive has anything to say about it.
