QUOTE said:Ok so apparently, PSP Firmware 6.20 is on the way. Tomorrow infact. It will include a new comic book reader that will go with the launch of new comic book service available over PSN. So where is this info coming from? From the horse’s mouth at the Tokyo game show, claims this blog
The new comics over PSN will support all PSP’s and firmware 6.20 will add a new column to the PSP XMB for this. This new feature is coming to Japan first, with North America and Europe to follow at a later stage. (not confirmed yet)
So how much?? The digital comics will carry a standard price tage of ¥420 or $5 USD each. If you prefer only reading the chapters they will cost ¥50-¥150 each. Which is around $1-2 USD.
I wonder if Sony also patched the user save game exploit that FreePlay used on his PSP Go “Hello World” hackQUOTE said:Sony detailed its PSP comic service back at the Tokyo Game Show. Today, it provided specific release and pricing information.
Downloadable comics will join the PlayStation Store library on December 10 under a new “Comics” category. Content will be available at around ¥420 for a full book and between ¥50 and ¥150 for individual chapters. Unlike other PS Store content, the comics are purchased rather than rented.
All varieties of the PSP, from the original PSP-1000 to the just released PSPgo, will be able to access the content.
Users will need to have their firmware updated to System 6.20 (available on November 19). This firmware update will add a new “Extra” column to the PSP’s XMB (Cross Media Bar) interface. You’ll be able to click on an icon under this column to download the required Comic Reader.
Content is being provided by such publishers as Ascii Mediaworks, Enterbrain, Kadokawa Shoten, Kodansha, Shueisha, Shogakkan, Square Enix (yes, they publish comics too), Softbank Creative, Bandai Visual, Bunkasha, Futabasha, Fujimi Shobo, and Hakusensha.
I really need to get a pandora.
