The PlayStation 3 may soon be getting replaced as the flagship console for Sony, but that does not mean customers will suddenly cease to use it for gaming and entertainment. Today Netflix gives customers of the device even more reason to stick with the aging platform, by announcing a major update to its PS3 app.

“The first thing you will notice an updated design that is more consistent with the Netflix player on the Web as well as our mobile and tablet applications” claims Chris Jaffe, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix.

The key feature in this update is the ability to easily manage audio and subtitles selections. customers can now do that directly in the player on the PS3, without having to return to the browse experience. For customers using the social features, there is now the ability to not share the current title available in the player. Netflix also claims improved design and performance.

Jaffe says “the updated Netflix player experience is available now on PS3 and will be coming soon to select Smart TVs and Blu-ray players”.
