Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
The video game site Kotaku is reporting on a new survey on the PlayStation Network is asking gamers what they think of digital comics and downloading graphic novels to Sony’s handheld PlayStation Portable console.
The survey asked about price points, subscriptions, sharing comics and Memory Stick sizes.
The comic prices ranged from .99 cents to $2.99 per issue with up to 30 percent price breaks if you buy a dozen. Graphic novels ranged from $4.99 to $19.99 and mange was $4.99 to $14.99. The monthly access plans ranged from about $7 to $15.
Kotaku seems to think this might have something to do with a rumored PSP revamp. Regardless, it seems as though Sony is trying to offer the console as a serious comics alternative to the iPhone, Kindle and other hoity-toity gadgets. Anyone want to bet on its chances?
