Netflix announced its plans to further expand the company into gaming as an additional content category on Tuesday.

Netflix chief operating officer and chief product officer Grey Peters said “we think we can deliver more entertainment value through(games) during the company’s second-quarter earnings conference call Tuesday.

Netflix said it will offer the game to subscribers at no additional cost. The company added, “we think the time is right to learn more about how our members value games”. The games are primarily meant for mobile devices but may eventually migrate to Tv.

From the look of things, it seems Netflix will use these gaming Apps to collect data in order to figure out the kind of content users want.

By introducing Netflix games, the company is like creating a kind of vicious cycle. For instance film, series will be their core source of revenue while their gaming will serve as a future backup. Netflix games in the future might create a game that will make a hit movie, just like popular games that have become hit movies, movies such as Mortal Kombat, Tomb Raider, and what have you?

Chief product officer Greg Peter said, “Maybe someday we will see a game that spawns a film or a series” he added, “that will be an amazing place to get to really see the nice interplay allowing users to dictate the characters they want to spend time with in different parts of a gaming world.

It is safe to say, the Netflix game will in the future serve as a growth rate for upcoming movies. Gamers will look forward to seeing characters in their games as real characters in movies.

Netflix is likely to succeed in the gaming industry as the streaming App has a new dimension in developing ways to distribute film and Tv, and also how Netflix grew from DVD distributors to become a streaming App with more than 200 million subscribers and are of the best know brands in entertainment. Even though other big companies like Amazon and Apple failed, Netflix might eventually rise.
