Sony Considers Adding Downloadable Comic Books To PSP Store

Sony is considering to sell digital versions of comic books and graphic novels over the PlayStation Store on PSP, if a recent survey conducted by the company is any indication.

The survey brought up general questions, such as how much users would be willing to pay per comic, or if they’d be willing to opt into a subscription service. That means access to all comics on the store in exchange for a flat monthly fee.

Provided alongside the survey was a marketing brief showcasing how this supposed comic book section would integrate with the PlayStation Store. Different view modes are explained, such as “auto-flow” which jumps across sections of a comic page in sequential order. Also depicted was an interface for fast-switching between different comics.

Might this all be making an appearance in a future firmware update? Maybe. Expectedly, Sony was quick to point out that this video clip is just a mock-up, but it looks as if they’re seriously considering to add it. See for yourself after the break.
