“Do you have any feedback or questions? Please leave your comments here.”

Why should we? Grace Chen doesn’t respond to feedback or questions very often. Oh well, guess I will anyway.

Will the comics work on Vita? Will the PS3 ever get a comic app.? Will Image ever put more comics on the store? Will we ever see any Dark Horse stuff? Will Canadians ever get the comic store? Will IDW ever run out of ideas for new Transformers, Star Trek and G.I. Joe series?

I guess that’s it for now. Great update this week, thanks.

You guys do know that the Comic Store won’t be launching in any other country now, right?
Read it up under the comic site “Why my country isn’t listed?” link over there.
Canada left out, again.

@Knight0011: If you want to get picky over what it says, it only mentions the SCEE region when it says this…

We can confirm that no further Digital Comic Stores will be launched within the SCEE region.

Either it is an error on their part & they need to add the SCEA region, or sometime in the future (yeah, I know, not likely), we’ll see it in Canada. I thought it at first it was a language thing with English & French, but France has access to the comics. I haven’t read comics in years, but I’d love the opportunity to get some on the PSP.

WOW for the first time I thought I would finally say I sure wish these were on the PS3 and there are already other people feeling this. The PSP runs out of room so fast due to the great deals on downloadable games ;) And as the dad who buys all the games, movies, PS+, etc; I have wanted to check out the comics as I am a bit less into the games and more into reading and think digital comics are a great idea. My eyes are kind of bad but I read fast so viewing them on my 40′ TV in 1080p would be nice. I would rather not have to hook up the PSP since my daughter usually hogs it and also that other problem of hardly any room any more. Using a PS3 controller like you do in the browser would be awesome. All I would need really is zoom in/out, move around the page, and page fwd/back but however you guys wanna do it for the PS3 version would be great!

Imagine the amount of dads who would finally give in and buy the PS3 that thought there wasn’t really that ONE THING that they had to have. 100,000 more?

@SlackerTD it is actually a CRTC http://www.crtc.gc.ca/ .these are the guys that held up the Video store from being in Canada.

I am still going to ask though……any date as to when comics are coming to Canada? (please give us something…even if it is a “working on it”)

Didnt even know about a comic store…..is this only for psp or something???

Yes, I really wish we could get these on ps3 store.

“Do you have any feedback or questions? Please leave your comments here.” why? why put that at the bottom of the post? This question, just as my last will go unanswered.

+ W1LLBR0HAM on June 9th, 2011 at 1:14 pm said:

Can we please have more current and adult titles?

If the comic store had titles like CHEW, NEONOMICON, HP LOVECRAFTS STRANGE TALES, RICK REMENDER’s VENOM, SPAWN, THE FALL OF CTHULU, CALIGULA, ETC., I would be purchasing tons, and tons of comics off the store.

But so far, there are only really children to mid-teen titles. Please release more adult comics for your mostly adult gamer demographic.

Also, if you guys made a BOOKSTORE on PSN i would seriously cream myself. That would create such a good competitor to amazon and barnes and noble. Being able to buy books, and read them via a new software or the comic book reader on my pspgo would be an absolute dream come true. Think about it. It could make you guys money, create a new app for VITA, and attract more adult casual gamers/adult techies/ or just people looking for a cheap Book reader, when the psp lowers in price.

If you take this advice, invest in a new E-reader app in your comic reader software.

Rock on Sony!

Think about your adults!

Stay classy, Sony.

Peace

You guys haven’t noticed yet? they really don’t want our input or suggestions. it’s always going to be how they want it to be.

Anyways, It’s a shame all the $ they are losing out on just because they want to keep the comics Psp only. o well I guess… BTW, What happened to all the support that was promised just last year at E3 for the PspGo? Was that a flop? I’m not jumping on any more of Sony’s handhelds until they prove worthy of my hard earned money!!!!
