PSP Gets Digital Reader19 Aug, 2009 By: Billy Gil
Sony has announced the digital reader for PSP, which will allow PSP owners to access readable material starting with Digital Comics this December in the United States and parts of Europe. More territories will follow in 2010.
Comic publishers Marvel Entertainment (“Spider-Man,” “X-Men” and “The Fantastic Four”), IDW Publishing (“Transformers” and “Star Trek”), iVerse Media (Archie Comics), Image (“Proof”) and others will offer content to PSP users through the PlayStation Store.
“This is a great new service that offers PSP owners even more options for entertainment on the go and makes PSP a must for comics fans,” said Isabelle Tomatis, European marketing manager, hardware and platforms, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “Digital Comics will sit alongside the new PlayStation Network video download service as yet another way that PSP offers a whole world of entertainment in your hands.”
