Sony has announced that the PSP Digital Comics Store will no longer receive updates as of today. 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.
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. We’ll make sure to keep you updated with any future developments right here on the blog.
Since the launch of the service in 2009, the digital comics store has provided nearly 4000 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. One would hope that the PS3 and PSVita are amongst the “other Sony devices” getting a digital comics service in the future. Throw in a subscription service and I’m sold.
