Android Video Games Are For Paying Netflix Subscribers



Android video games are for paying subscribers to Netflix and if you ask me, I am no mathematician, but that is decent marketing. More money for the lucrative media service would not harm a fly, right? Starting tomorrow, all Netflix subscribers on Android will notice a row labeled either “Games On Mobile” or “N Games.” 

What Now?: 

Starting tomorrow, for all Netflix subscribers, Netflix games are downloaded to your Android. That is too aggravating for gamers with iOS, but perhaps, in the future, Netflix will invest time in making video games for iOS users. Downloading games is better than streaming them on Netflix’s cloud servers, right? 

Now, Netflix has video games to the mix with a lineup, including Stranger Things: 1984 (previously known as Stranger Things: The Game) and Stranger Things 3: The Game. Back in July 4, Stranger Things 3: The Game became available for Xbox One, PS4 (PlayStation 4), Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Other games in the Android app for paying Netflix subscribers are Teeter Up, Shooting Hoops, and Card Blast

Netflix’s Competition: 

Nvidia GeForce Now, Amazon Luna, and Xbox Game Streaming, are competitive subscription services. With Nvidia GeForce Now, nearly any laptop, desktop, SHIELD TV, Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Android device, can be turned into a PC gaming rig. 

Bowser Is Guilty?: 

A man named Gary Bowser is being called Bowser and if being a troublemaker isn’t on your list of priorities, being related to a dragon will make the public eye focus. Gary participated in a hacking enterprise, unlocking Nintendo Switch systems and pleaded guilty to his horrendous crimes. He agrees to pay $4.5 million and still is facing multiple years imprisonment. Think about what $4.5 million worth of video games could get you.

Bowser, the dragon, from the Mario franchise, probably would not offer to pat money, especially millions of dollars. In fact, Bowser is so dominant, he would not have to pay his taxes. 

On TorrentFreak, a court filing in Nintendo’s Western District of Washington, reads that Bowser participated in “cybercriminals enterprise,” creating, selling, and distributing circumvention devices. Such devices allow game consoles to play ROMs, in opposition to the game developers and publishers selling the legal versions of the games. Anyway, Gary was sued by Nintendo. Maybe the whole reason Bowser got caught, was to to be labeled Bowser. Who knows?
