PlayStation Vue, Is It Worth The Effort??

At $30, it would be a perfect compliment to Netflix, Hulu and others, but the prices sony want for a service that ONLY works on the PS3 and PS3 right now seems like a project destined to fail. Where I am, $60 a month would net me a basic cable package with HD that includes more channels. Others may be able to snag basic WITH a premium channel for around the same or less! While the idea is sound, pricing kills it! What do you think?? Source: Sony
