Sony Considers Adding Downloadable Comic Books to PSP Store
Sony has been querying the gaming community on the viability of a possible Comic Book reader and download service for their PSP.
To quote: Surveys were sent out with the following video (see below) attached.
Though the online "comic shop" is new, viewing comics on your PSP is old hat and rather frustrating, though not nearly as much as trying to read web pages on it. What this service/function needs is an auto "frame go-to and re-sizer". Perhaps it has one, but I couldn't gleem one from the video.
I say it every time when there's a PSP story and I'm saying it again,... stop adding stupid stuff to the PSP when all I really want is a second analog stick!

Yeah, they need hardware upgrades, not software ones. Does this comic book store provide us with easier controls?
The screen should be bigger in order to see the comics with a little quality. Anyway, the hardware should also be better, it gets too slow, and there are already homebrews that open comics.
I'll never buy that. As the proud owner of 15,278 comics in my collection, including Avengers 19 thru current and mostly 90% Marvel. I like to be able to hold a comic in my fingers like a fine piece of art that is highly collectible and not some media which i'll probably lose anyway.
Viewing it on such a small screen and not being able to smell the ink is like baseball cards when they took the gum out of the packs. And personally some of the comics of today don't even come close to comics of the silver age.
i have used my psp to read comics, i can say that it is very nifty. the only problem is the slow zoom function that i have experienced, but that is what you get with homebrew.
Nothing can overcome the feeling of turning the pages of a real comic. But it is a fresh idea. We'll wait and see it
