To quote: Hi everyone, PSP (PlayStation Portable) firmware update (v6.20) will be available later this evening so we wanted to give you a quick preview of what to expect.
- Digital Comics Reader - PlayStation Network Digital Comics is a new service launching in December. It will allow you to download hundreds of classic and new comics from the PlayStation Store and read them page by page or frame by frame on your PSP system.
Firmware update (v6.20) includes the Digital Comics reader application, which you'll find under a new section called "Extras" on the XMB. Please note, the comic reader is an additional download; once you've loaded (v6.20) onto your system, simply click on the comic reader icon under "Extras" to download it to your PSP.
In addition, you'll be able to try out a free digital comic sample from the service soon. Visit www.playstationcomics.com for more information.
- Export video/photo playlists - This is a new feature that allows you to export your video and photo playlists from your PC to your PSP system through Media Go. Download the latest version of Media Go (v1.3) for this and a few additional enhancements.
A full video walkthrough of Digital Comics will be available soon. Don't forget, PS3 firmware update 3.1 is also set to go live this evening.
As always, we look forward to reading your feedback.
