Sony officially announced that yesterday’s PSP Digital Comics update, which includes issues of Batman Beyond, Transformers Enders Game, Doctor Who and Star Trek, will be the last one. The service has offered new comics every week since it launched in 2009, but from now on the store won’t offer any new issues. This has been announced through the PlayStation Blog, along with a complete list of new comics.
Even though further updates are ceasing, the store (which has more than 4000 issues) will remain open. The complete lineup of comics includes issues from companies like Disney, Marvel, IDW Publishing and DC Comics. Additionally, the store features comic book collections such as: Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, The X-Files and Quarantined.
There are probably going to be more comics, but not on the PSP. Sony said that “The Digital Comics Team will continue to work on bringing the comic service to other Sony devices.” The PlayStation Vita seems like the perfect choice for something like this.
