Netflix has confirmed that all PS3 users who request a disc for the streaming service will get one come Novemeber.

Speaking with Joystiq, Netflix vice president Steve Swasey said that there will be no disc shortages, as it as “produced enough discs” with distribution centers currently hoarding units until the ship date.

While the company is still working out distribution details, customers will receive the red envelope as fast as it normally takes for a Netflix rental to hit their doorstep.

Also, since there isn’t a “VIP list or special circumstance list”, everyone should get it around the same time.

Netflix also confirmed that PS3 service will be similar to the Xbox 360 service, which outputs 720p and stereo sound.
