While these entertainment conglomerates such as Disney, Paramount, Warner Bros. Discovery, and Netflix have what seems like an unlimited amount of content to offer through their streaming services, Sony has had to take a different approach.
Sure they own Columbia Pictures along with Sony Animation and many other smaller film affiliates, but they certainly lack the content to launch their own successful streaming network. So when Netflix and Sony announced their exclusive partnership going forward, it was a big ‘get’ for The Big N(etflix).
Looking to expand their entertainment empire beyond films, Netflix has announced that they will be adding games to their online services in the upcoming year. The most interesting part of this entire situation is what a data miner might have uncovered.
Netflix’s gaming feature has a current working name of “Shark” and is represented by this image in their iOS app: a shark fin. Could an image of PS5 controllers and Sony’s Ghost of Tsushima (director’s cut coming Aug. 20th) indicate a partnership with $SONY?

While the image featuring the DualSense controllers is nothing more than a stock image, the original cover art for the Ghost of Tsushima is by far the most interesting find. Could Sony be teaming-up with Netflix to offer their PlayStation Studios content to Netflix’s upcoming gaming streaming service? If so, what does this mean for the future of PlayStation Now? Could this be their answer to Xbox Game Pass?
We will definitely be paying close attention to any future announcements that Netflix makes in regards to their journey into the world of gaming.
