Hulu Plus has been confirmed for PS3 and Xbox 360 via Hulu’s official site. Looks as though Sony got its claws in first.

The service will run you $10 per month, and is already available for iPhone and iPad, with PS3 getting it in July.

Internet-enabled televisions and Blu-ray will get the service in the fall, and it’s coming to Xbox 360 in early 2011.

Microsoft said the reason for the 360 delay was due to a “customized experience” being created for the service via Xbox Live.

“We are taking the time to ensure that the Hulu Plus experience for Xbox 360 is the best on TV,” said Major Nelson in a statement, “and like our other entertainment experiences, it will not be a port, but rather a custom experience that leverages the Xbox Live community features”.

An official response from Microsoft added that Hulu Plus works with Kinect for a controller-free experience, and it will incorporate Xbox Live Parties so you can watch shows with friends “no matter where they are”, with more details to be announced at a later time.

Hulu Plus will be available for US Xbox Live Gold Members only.

Meanwhile, Sony has confirmed to VG247 that Hulu Plus will be coming soon to PS3, and that more specific information would be announced “shortly”.

Hulu was rumored for Xbox 360 earlier in the month, while word that the service was to be added to PS3 hit last week.

The official site has a guided tour here. While you are at it, you can request an invitation for a service preview.
