Sony today announced the final launch plans for the PlayStation Portable's comic service, whereby a range of manga will be made available to PSP owners in Japan.


There'll be a PSP firmware update on the 19th to 6.20, which will add the comics store ahead of the service's launch a few weeks later on December 10.


For the Japanese store, individual issues will cost between ¥50-150 (USD$0.55-$1.70), while collections will run for the uniform price of ¥420 (USD$4.70).

Wondering about the Western service? The 6.20 update itself will be global, but Sony say the launch of the American and European comic store will be "a little later".

PSN seriously needs adult comics and manga that people would otherwise feel ashamed of buying in a store. They don't need to be all-out hentai, but the borderline ecchi stuff that's enough to show numbers. Dammit, Sony, don't desensitize this comic service with soulless non-adult stuff!
