Sony to Launch PlayStation Vue on PS3 and PS4
Sony's cloud-based TV service is gearing up to launch soon for PlayStation consoles.
Sony has had many PlayStation updates recently with its 20th anniversary and the announcement that the PlayStation Vue will launch in Q1 of 2015 furthers them. PlayStation Vue, Sony's streaming TV service, has been in an invite-only beta test for far too long -- we're glad to hear it is finally getting the green light for its official release. IGN reports that, at the CES conference, Sony has announced the PlayStation Vue will be officially launching in the first quarter of 2015 for PS3 and PS4.
PlayStation Vue is going to be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and will also launch for the iPad and other non-Sony devices. The television companies that will be a part of the PlayStation Vue initiative include CBS, Fox, NBCUniversal, Viacom and many more.
We're just going to have to wait and see what the subscription cost will be like for the PS Vue service. Sony recently announced that subscriptions for PlayStation Now, its game-streaming program, cost $19.99 (or $15.99, depending on which plan you go with) a month, so Vue's cost may be along those lines. Also, Slack TV (another TV-streaming service) is coming to Xbox One for $19.99 a month. Stay tuned and we'll provide up-to-date coverage on the PS Vue's official release date and pricing once more information is available.
