Investing.com – Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock was up 2.7% in Thursday’s premarket trading amid increasing chatter it may add video games to its streaming platform.

A signal to this effect came Wednesday with the news of the company hiring Mike Verdu as vice president of game development, reporting to Chief Operating Officer Greg Peters.

Verdu was previously Facebook’s vice president in charge of working with developers to bring games and other content to Oculus virtual-reality headsets, according to Bloomberg.

Netflix plans to offer video games on its streaming platform within the next year, Bloomberg said. The games will appear with the existing portfolio as a new programming genre.

While the stock buzzes on the addition of new dimensions to streaming services by the company, it also got a little bump from an upgrade by UBS, which now has a target price of $620, 13% above its closing level on Wednesday. Analyst Eric Sheridan retained his ‘buy’ on the stock, according to StreetInsider.

It's a smart move, given how many people use their platform for entertainment. With Mike Verdu on board, who has a strong background in VR gaming, it'll be fascinating to see what kind of games they'll introduce.

And yes, I'm a gaming enthusiast myself. Counter Strike has been a long-time favorite of mine. The competitive nature and teamwork required in the game always keep me hooked. Recently, I found this online marketplace dedicated to CS2 skins, which adds a whole new level of customization to the gaming experience. It's impressive how gaming continues to evolve and expand its horizons.

Today, we'll explore two alternative corrective counts: one indicating the low is already in place, and another suggesting the corrective pattern could double in size. It's crucial to exercise caution, especially for long positions. We'll discuss optimal entry points and stop placements to manage risks effectively. Russell 2000 (RUT) Current Status: The Russell 2000 is completing Wave (iv) and is expected to move higher. We will maintain our long positions. European Markets: DAX 40 and FTSE 100 Current Status: The European markets have yet to complete intermediate Wave (4).

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
