After much fanfare from Sony about the introduction of comics to the Playstation Store and PSP, it appears that the addition of digital comics did little for Sony’s profit margin. After the digital comic book update of today (which includes Batman Beyond, Transformers, Ender’s Game, B.C. collections and a Suicide Girl comic) there will no longer be any more new comics coming to the store. However, “The Digital Comics Team will continue to work on bringing the comic service to other Sony devices.”
The digital comic book media type has always seemed promising. But, the difficulties associated with reading and looking at artwork on small screens have always been hard to surmount. What are your thoughts on the announcement? Are you disappointed that you can longer build your collection of comics on a portable Playstation device?
