Microsoft, maker of the XBOX 360, has entered into a partnership with Netflix that will allow gamers access to over 10000 movies through the online movie rental company. Gamers will have to pay a monthly subscription fee of 9$ and also posses annual gold membership for XBOX live, the 360's online service. Meanwhile another gaming console maker, Nintendo has announced a new product that improves the sensitivity of the wii game controller. Unlike standard controllers the wii controller uses the hand motion of the user to move objects within the game hence making gaming more realistic. The Nintedo wii remains the strongest console on the market.
