The PSP Comic reader is already available for downloading thanks to the latest firmware update. The service is not live yet, but it looks like when it does go live later this month comic fans will have plenty to choose from.
A recent post on the European PS.Blog site states that “We should have more than 500 comics on the store when we launch in mid December in UK, Ireland, US, South Africa, New Zealand & Australia.” Some of the publishers include:
- 2000AD – Featuring Judge Dredd, Durham Red…
- Disney – Follow the adventures of Mickey Mouse, Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck….
- IDW – Astro Boy, Transformers, Star Trek, Wormwood…
- Insomnia – Burke & Hare, Cages, Cancer Town…
- iVerse – Who bring us content from Ape Entertainment, Archie Comics, Dabel Brothers, Image & Red 5.
- Marvel – Astonishing X-Men, Captain America, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man
- Titan – Wallace & Gromit
For those wondering, by a quarter-ton we mean a US ton of 2,000. They will also be priced by the publisher, so if a favorite of yours is priced too high for your taste then take it up with them and not Sony!
