Netflix is set for release this month and I, for one, am pretty excited. Excited enough to find an NES, hack that thing and start watching House of Cards in the most brutally lo-fi way possible?
I guess I’m not quite that excited.
But two developers at Netflix have totally found a way to get Netflix running on the NES. During a Netflix hack-day two smart employees got the show up and running. Surprise surprise, it looks sort of terrible.
At the same time — how cool is it.
My favourite part is the menu system. It just looks properly retro, properly NES if that makes sense.
Amazing. But also really, really bad.
