    It looks like the xbox got it's update yesterday. Some things they added we're parties, and netflix parties, where you can join a group and watch a movie together sort of like Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    The problem is everyone must also have a netflix account to participate. It would be cool if everyone didn't need an account, but it make sense that they do need one.

    With that said, I only play on there every now and then, and I don't know of anyone on my friends list who also uses netflix so I thought I'd see if any of you guys are 360 players?

    If so, toss out your gamer tag and lets pick a cheesy movie and set a time to watch.

    Feel free to add me.

    that's pretty cool.

    watching movies with strangers.

    You need an XBOX 360 with XBOX Live and NetFlix .. they just put out the update so you have to update the NetFlix Application though XBOX and you'll see a feature for "Party". It looks pretty cool but I don't know about listening to people talking though the whole moive lol .. plus you need the headset

    Is that a uk update or somewhere else? If it is I haven't seen it yet, how does it work do you all pay for the movie and then you can link up with friends watching the movie, soryy for the questions but I am curious.

    Thanks

    You have to have a NetFlix subscription .. I know it works in the US but I'm not sure if they have NetFlix in the UK. You don't pay per movie, NetFlix has a collection of movies they let you stream if you are a member.
