Playstation offers downloads of Marvel books

Sony's portable Playstation is going to have a digital download feature that'll be enabling users to obtain some of Marvel's publications:
NEW YORK (AP) - Sony is adding a digital reader service that will allow owners of its handheld gaming system, the PlayStation Portable, to download comics.

The service will start in December and will include content from Marvel Entertainment's Spider-Man, X-Men and the Fantastic Four.

Users will be able to read classic and new comics page by page or frame by frame. Sony says PSP owners will be able to access a range of media through the digital reader service, but it gave no further details.

Sony did not announce prices Tuesday. The service will initally be available through the PlayStation Stores serving the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
On the plus side, it'll be great to get hold of the older, better books in Marvel's archives through the Playstation, for anyone who owns the machine. But the newer material from the past few years that they're making available through the gameplay system, that'll be a waste of time for everyone, and could dampen enthusiasm by showing how many modern day Marvel comics are not even worth the megabytes they're uploaded on.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
