Sony’s cloud-based video service, PlayStation Vue, is coming for the Xbox and PlayStation consoles in 2018.
It will be available for free on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, PlayStation TV, PlayStation Camera, PlayStation Smart TV, and PlayStation Vudu.
It’s a significant move for Sony, which has struggled to offer a video streaming service on the Xbox console.
That may change with the PS4 Pro, which launches in October and features better hardware.
The Xbox One S and PS4 Slim are both set to arrive in 2020, and the PlayStation 4 Pro and PSVR will launch in 2021.
PlayStation Vues’ pricing starts at $40 per month and then drops to $30 per month, with no cap.
It includes access to the PlayStation Store, PlayStation’s in-house catalog of titles, and a “passport” for in-app purchases.
For a limited time, PlayStation fans can get a free trial of PlayStation Vuz, a cloud-connected video service that offers a lot of the features of the PlayStation Vu service.
PlayStation’s PlayStation Vudeus will launch later this year.
The PS4 will be coming to Android and iOS in 2020.
