Read Comic Books on Your PSP

A few months ago Marvel comics and SONY announced they’d be releasing Marvel’s digital comics line to be downloaded and read on SONY’s PSP.

With the latest firmware update, 6.20, allows access to the Comic Reader application.  However, the Comic Reader app isn’t available yet.  That PSP, such a tease.  The Comic Reader application is a separate application that allows you to download and read comic books from the SONY PSP store.

This move by SONY is one of many to make the PSP more enticing than just a portable video game platform.  I can foresee the Comic Reader application being expanded to deliver magazines or books making the PSP into a Kindle competitor.

We’ll see how easy it is to enjoy and read comic books on the PSP when the application fully launches.
