I thought it would be too, but then again, only gold members can use Netflix. So that probably is a big reason why the 360 is last on this list.

You need to have gold to use netflix on the xbox. If it was for everyone then it would be the most but yeah, crazy.

Didn't sony say PS3 was #1 or something at E3? Those percentages do make sence though.

Remember how the Wii sold way more than the 360 and PS3? That's why.

Maybe they said of the HD consoles?  I do think I recall them saying something about that.

Not surprising, even if we as geeks find it ridiculous. The PS3 being used more than the 360 seems more unexpected to me, considering the larger install base and the timed disc-less exclusivity, but thinking about it now, it makes sense because of the Gold restriction.

I use my wii for Netflix, mostly because my old SD TV is in my room and it's a little bigger than my computer monitor when i watch it from my bed.

Considering the install base and the proportion of demographics for the Wii, it is not surprising at all that it's on top for consoles.

Also the wii is very silent and uses like 10% of the power a PS3 would.

Despite there being many Wiis out there I was sure 360 was the most popular.

I often use my wii for netflix. It is good at it.

Xbox you have to pay a monthly fee to MS to even have the option to use netflix.

Thats the only reason I can think of for the PS3 being above the xbox.
