DC Comics Titles Coming to PlayStation Network for PSP

Friday, June 25, 2010

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today announced the availability of DC Comics on PlayStation Network Digital Comics service for PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable). An initial selection of over 80 DC titles can be downloaded from PlayStation®Store immediately priced from $1.90 to $7.90 per issue that include Batman: Hush, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Fables: Legends in Exiles and Planetary: All Over the World and Other Stories, as well as comics that are exclusive to PlayStation Network such as Free Realms, God of War, Resistance, and Superman/Batman.

Lastly, DC Comics is offering users a free 10-page preview of the 700th issue of Superman available on PlayStation Network Digital Comics.

DC Comics is the largest English-language comic book publisher in the world. In 1938, they introduced Superman to the world, followed afterwards by Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash and many others. Today, they publish nearly 1000 issues a year – and will now be going digital with PlayStation.

“Outside of my work as a comic book creator and Co-Publisher, I’m an avid gamer,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher. “Making our comics available through PlayStation Network Digital Comics offers a perfect opportunity for us to reach a new, different kind of reader.”

“Digital Comics has been incredibly popular since its release last year, and we’re excited to have some of the comic book world’s most iconic characters from DC Comics joining the stables”, says Isabelle Tomatis, European Marketing Manager, Hardware and Platforms, SCEE. “With over 80 comics in just the first delivery, DC Comics will add to the huge range of great comics available for PSP, so fans can take their favourite characters and adventures from the DC world with them wherever they go.”

Launched in December 2009, the hugely successful Digital Comics brings the brightness and excitement of your favourite comics to the screen of every PSP model, including
PSPgo.  With accessibility from any Wi-Fi hotspot, users can choose from a catalogue of over 1600 classic and new comics to download from PlayStation Store wherever they are.  With Autoflow, readers can read comics frame by frame, zooming in and out all at the touch of a button, the way the artist intended. Combined with the vibrant, bright LCD graphics of PSP and PSPgo, your comics will look as good as they do in real life.

PlayStation Network Digital Comics service is available for all PSP models by downloading the latest firmware (6.20) and selecting the ‘Digital Comics’ icon under the ‘Extras’ column on PSP’s XMB menu. Once the ‘digital reader’ is downloaded, users are able to explore a huge and ever-growing range of more than 1600 comics, download and read them. Users can access PlayStation Store either directly on their PSP or via Media Go on their PC.

Digital Comics for PSP is available in PlayStation Store for the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and will be rolled out to further regions later this year. Look out for free comics that’ll give you a taste of what’s on offer: you’ll find details on the PlayStation Blog, Twitter and www.playstationcomics.com.
