PlayStation 3 Video on Demand Coming in Early 2008 for Japan

According to reports, Japanese PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download high-definition video content on to their PlayStation 3 hard drives early in 2008.  The first things to be offered will be motor-racing videos and a BBC documentary to hopefully appeal to people playing Gran Turismo 5 Prologue that is coming on December 13, 2007 in Japan.  Each of the videos will cost $1.85 to download.

No plans for a North American release of this content or service have been provide as of this posting.
