Netflix Introduces Max, a Playful Personal Assistant for Playstation 3 Users

Netflix users on the Playstation 3 are getting their own personal assistant. Starting today, the video-streaming site announced on its official blog that it launched Max, which helps users find recommended movies through games and humorous interaction.

Some of the games that Max hosts include “The Rating Game,” where users rate on a five-star scale a few movies from the genre of your choice and “Max’s Mystery Call,” where users choose a quote from a random movie and it plays automatically. Once Max figures out what users like, it will likely offer personalized recommendations just by asking one question like “Monkeys or UFOs?” Sometimes, Max may just make a suggestion out of the blue.

The Max personal assistant is only available in the United States at the moment.

For more information about how to play with Max, check out the demonstration video above.
