Ok.. XNE/Netflix vs PS3 Home.. really??

   0
I've seen several articles, notably on CNN (from it's no doubt robust gaming news department) suggesting that these two things are effectively competing products.

This strikes me as absolutely ludicrous. Has anyone in the gaming community made this comparison? Do any of you out there feel like this is a valid comparison? One is a method for streaming movies and DVDs to your television and the other is.. a.. place to .. you know... chill... with homies... virtually.

Regardless, do these two products really have competing target markets? Are there really people who have to decide between Netflix on 360 vs Home on the PS3? Netflix costs money, along with the Live subscription (which at $50 a year, I am assured repeatedly is tantamount to anal rape) and the Home program is free...

I just cannot see how these two products are at all comparable other than they hit the scene at about the same time, and isn't Home still just an open beta?

I'm looking for some input out there? Anyone have any opinions on this?
