that Microsoft looks set to unleash the European version of Xbox 360 video on demand service by the end of the year – and today news arrives that Sony's PS3 equivalent could be with us just weeks later.

Though there's still no mention of a possible date for the European service, Variety reports that the Japanese VOD service will arrive in early 2008.

Initially it will offer primarily motor racing related content to tie in with the release of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue – including a documentary about the Nissan GT-R and episodes of BBC's Top Gear. Prices are estimated to be around 90p a download.
