Ooops! Netflix flips on video games

Posted on January 26, 2012 - 1:00pm by Sean Hinz

Remember Qwikster?  Now those were some good times, but they ended too quickly. A practice which is becoming all too common for Netflix, as we learned today that they will not be bringing games to the rental service.

Speaking during the Q4 investor call, our favorite CEO Reed Hastings let everyone know that Netflix has no plans to offer video games right now. A report that differs from a statement made during the Qwikster mix-up. The only news Hasting could confirm was that Netflix is look to stream 3D content to replace its 3D Blu-ray mail service. GameFly is probably dancing in a conga line around the water cooler as we speak.
