MANGA FOR SONY PSP: SEVEN SEAS ANNOUNCES 12,000 DOWNLOADS IN 5 DAYS
Seven Seas Entertainment announced today that there have been an astonishing 12,000 downloads from their web site, Gomanga.com, since last week, when they first made manga previews available in Sony PSP format. Seven Seas has become the first manga publisher to release free downloadable manga content for the Sony PSP and plans to continue the trend by releasing further chapters in coming months.
Clearly, just as I've felt in my gut, there is an opportunity to be had with digital comics on the PSP. I've yet to sample this myself as the PSP's are spendy little units, but it feels like the next big step in the digital revolution, bringing print comics to digital media...
I already converted the first chapter of Super Real to PSP format, I just need to figure out the details on setting it up for download, and whether to make it free, or how to charge a nominal fee.
Any PSP savvy people out there are welcome to share info. Otherwise, I'm still looking to make some time for this, I don't want to let this opportunity pass me by.
