Redbox Instant Coming To Xbox 360 Console, PS3 And Wii U Left Out
The bad news, unfortunately, is that the entire service will be an Xbox exclusive, so PS3 and Wii / Wii U owners won't be enjoying the spoils. If you are currently a Redbox Instant beta participant, you’ll receive an email with a unique code to access the app on Xbox 360 in the coming days. Interested newcomers to the Redbox Instant beta can request entry into the beta by visiting www.RedboxInstant.com. A Redbox Instant by Verizon subscription package, priced at $8 per month for DVD or $9 per month for Blu-ray, combines four one-night credits for the latest movie releases at Redbox kiosks with access to a library of popular movies available for unlimited streaming. Through the app, Xbox 360 movie fans can also purchase and rent the newest digital releases without needing a subscription.
To clarify, the "exclusive" is only in terms of gaming consoles.
Somehow, Microsoft's aging console continues to bust out new hits, maintaining a great deal of steam despite being quite old in its lifecycle. Any owners of those other consoles feeling a little sting?
