PlayStation Comic Store On PSP Is Shutting Down
Posted by Chris K on July 6th, 2011 | 2 Comments | Tags: Comics
The PSP Digital Comic Service is no longer going to be updated. The news was dropped today in a blog post on the Official EU PlayStation Blog. The service, which became operation in late 2009, has a collection of over 3900+ comics, some of which are free of charge.
This is going to be your last comic store update for PSP as the Digital Comics Team are now working on bringing the comic service to other Sony devices.
Having a proper comic reader on the PS3 would be a great step forward, but that is all just conjecture at this time. I am sure this won’t be the last we see of the comic store… I hear Sony is making a new handheld. But your guess is as good as mine, when asked via Twitter the response give out was “In fact even I don’t know for certain which hardware or when!”
I am unsure if this affects the service in Japan, but I will be on the lookout for news.
