Whereas Netflix Instant Watch exclusively graced the XBOX 360 for some time, Playstation 3 owners are getting the last laugh now that Hulu's giving them exclusive access to Hulu Plus streaming for the remainder of the year.

According to most stats, few gamers out there are playing XBOX original titles on XBOX Live. And, according to Microsoft, continuing legacy support for original XBOX titles is getting in the way of improving the Live service overall.

Retro Game Review: Ninja Gaiden for the NES

Booorrriiing.
