“ Video game Netflix ” is finally here for real. Long used to refer to certain cloud gaming offers (the Xbox Game Pass in particular) or Apple Arcade, this expression will take on a whole new meaning with the launch of the famous SVoD platform in the field of gaming. Only mentioned by Bloomberg so far, the future service is detailed a little more officially through a letter from Netflix to its investors.
NO ADDITIONAL COST FOR THE VIDEO GAME
Confirming the information from the American press agency, Netflix specifies that this offer will be included in the subscription, at no additional cost. Ultimately, it is not so much a new service as it is a new type of content “ like original films, animation or unscripted television ”.
After all, it makes sense. The biggest competitors of Netflix are not so much Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV + or Disney +, but all the other activities that you can practice, in front of your television or not, and which occupy your free time… including the video game.
Netflix also specifies that priority will be given initially to games for mobile devices. So do not expect blockbusters to compete with the AAAA games of a Naughty Dog for example.
To justify its turn to gaming, the letter also takes two examples: the interactive episode of Black Mirror, Bandersnatch, and the game Stranger Things, available on iOS and Android. It is therefore rather an Apple Arcade service that one should expect.
One point still remains uncertain: is it a cloud gaming service, which would be consistent in 2021/2022 for the streaming giant, or simply games available for download. This will remain to be clarified in the coming months.

No rest for the brave, cinephiles and series fans always looking for a piece of content to bite into. Fortunately, they can bite into Netflix without restraint as the streaming platform (SVoD) has a full catalog. The editorial staff of CNET France has thus found two films and a series to devour. This weekend, we join a new high school with Le Nouveau, we save the world with The Five Legends and we overcome the throes of adolescence with Les Grands.
It must be admitted, Le Nouveau has made your servant happy, who had to rent the DVD to the video club (yes, that does not make us any younger) a good fifteen times. For good reason: it is surely the most quirky teenage film of the 2000s.
It must be said that the feature film incorporates all the clichés of the genre (the sporty villain, the prom …), but the done with generosity and overflowing humor. All the scenes thus play the exaggeration and the grotesque, when one does not fall squarely in the parody of iconic films ( Pretty Woman, The Silence of the Lambs ).
Le Nouveau is not just a comedy or a film for teenagers, it is also a great let off steam: cult lines, comedians who have fun, a superb soundtrack, cameos of stars in mess…
