Try Out The PSP Comic Reader

Posted by on November 21st, 2009 | 23 Comments | Tags: ,

You must download these from the PSN Store via your PSP. This will not work in Media Go or on a PS3. Make sure you are running firmware 6.20 and have downloaded the PlayStation Comic Reader app from the XMB. You also have to have a PSN account for the region that you want to download from activated on your PSP.

According to the EU PlayStation Blog these codes are good until December 16th.

If you are getting errors when downloading: try this fix.

    When do these each expire? I tried a week ago, and could only download the Transformers comic. Then, I tried yesterday and again, all of the errors pointed to these being expired. 🙁

      I imagine it has to do with licensing (though we do seem to get American comics mailed to Canada without issue). With a US account on my PSP, the Comic Reader works. With a Canadian account, you can still download the app (by clicking the US flag) but you can’t access the comics content.

      To be fair, Canada has less people that some major US cities, and it’s PSP install base is lower than that. Best thing you can do is make your voice known to Sony via the blog and @psncomics on Twitter.
