PlayStation Portable owners will have a new personal electronic reading room this December when Marvel Comics releases many of its flagship titles in PlayStation online stores.Marvel announced
today that gamers in the United States, and other select countries will have access to classic, select and digital-first comics through the PlayStation reader -- from Marvel and possibly others as well.
"PSP's new digital reader offers an unprecedented consumer experience that will extend the world of Marvel from print pages into the hands of fans around the world. We are excited to be part of this launch," said Ira Rubenstein, executive vice president, global digital media group, Marvel Entertainment in an official press release.
This news follows (as usual) the Japanese availability
of comics on the PSP gaming console, but this is a very good sign for fans of mobile reading. With Nintendo already making comics available
to North American fans, sequential art seems to finally have all of its next-gen hand-held gaming consoles covered - including smart phones.
Is there a system comics can't be found on? Fill us in if you can think of one.
