Sony have announced, at Gamescom, the impending release of the digital reader for PSP, a service that will allow owners to access a range of media on their PSP. From December and early 2010, PSP owners will have access to a huge library of digital comics from providing partners including Marvel Entertainment.
The new Digital Comics service will let you download hundreds of classic and new comics from PlayStation Store to your PSP, to read page by page or frame by frame wherever you are. The service lets you take a huge collection of comics out and about with you, allows you to pick up the latest edition from any Wi-Fi hotspot, and gives you a brand-new way to use your PSP for entertainment on the go.
â€œThis 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,â€ says Isabelle Tomatis, European Marketing Manager, Hardware and Platforms, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.
â€œDigital Comics will sit alongside the new PlayStation Network video delivery service as yet another way that PSP offers a whole world of entertainment in your hands.â€
â€œPSPâ€™s new digital reader offers an unprecedented consumer experience that will extend the world of Marvel from print pages into the hands of fans around the world. We are excited to be part of this launch,â€ said Ira Rubenstein, executive vice president, global digital media group, Marvel Entertainment.
