PS3 video on demand in early '08

Nov 30, 2007

Sony is planning to roll out a video on demand service for PS3 in early 2008, it's being reported.

According to Variety.com - via Japanese press - the service will only launch in Japan, with initial downloads geared toward motoring fans in the hope that they'll appeal to punters embracing Gran Turismo 5 Prologue like a long lost sibling.

GT 5 Prologue is pencilled in for release at the end of 2007 in Japan and the US, with a UK release expected in early 2008.

Microsoft has had its Xbox 360 video download service - Video Marketplace - in operation for some time in North America and looks set to launch it in Europe next month.
