PlayStation Comic Store On PSP Is Shutting Down
Launched back in 2009, the PSP’s Digital Comics Reader grew a loyal consumer base as the library of comics swelled past 4,000. However, if you were a fan of the service, we have got some bad news for you – no more comics will be coming to the PSP.
Since the launch of the service , the digital comics store has provided many comics from publishers such as Marvel, DC, and IDW. A very small handful of those comics are actually free, so you might as well check them out.
There may be more comics in the future, just not on PSP. Sony said that “The Digital Comics Team will continue to work on bringing the comic service to other Sony devices.” Imagine using the PlayStation Vita’s rear touchpad to — nope, we can’t think of anything that rear touchpad would have to do with a comic book.
Although updates will no longer occur, it will still be possible to browse the store and purchase any currently available comics. At least for the time being.
We think that we’ve found an upside to this announcement.The end of PSP comic updates means you can now collect them all. Don’t you want to be the first to own the full 4,000+ issue PSP comics collection?
