Xbox 360 has "Exclusive Partnership" for consoles with Netflix

According to the xbox.com site, this exclusive deal allows you the ability to stream movies and TV episodes from Netflix to your television through the Xbox 360. Microsoft's console will be the only system to offer this movie watching experience says xbox.com. And will be available to xbox live gold members, who also are Netflix unlimited plan subscribers at no additional cost.

Movie PartiesXbox LIVE Gold members can sit together in a virtual theater with up to seven friends no matter where they are while your Avatars watch a movie, flirt or even throw popcorn at each other.
Manage Your QueueBrowse the Netflix Instant Watch video catalogue, choose from the most popular movies and genres and add to your queue all from the comfort of your couch – no computer required.
Enhanced Playback ExperienceEnjoy a smooth viewing experience when your internet bandwidth fluctuates.
Friends InfoRicher information is now displayed in the Friends channel and in the Guide showing what you and your friends are doing.

It's not clear whether this "exclusive partnership" means Netflix will only be on the Xbox 360 or is it just the aformentioned features. There was a rumor claiming that Netflix was looking to do business with Sony and other Consoles, I guess we'll have to wait and see.
