Rest of EU?

45 Replies 5,217 Views Created 18-03-2010

Getting quite anoyed, as i live in Norway, i cant really axess the (comic)store, could you please get the bloody thing released for the rest of us? most of us in Scandinavia could not care less for translations, so please just give us axess to the same as UK.

 

why even have regional differences inside the EU? that sort of thing should have dissapeared at the begining of digital distribution.

hiya, yes we did demo German comics. Although, to put it in context, we also demoed German comics at last years Gamescom. It's frustrating for us too!

 

 

Oh that I did not know! That is bound to be very frustrating.

 

Can you say what the German comics where you had to demo? Is it translated comics from a publisher that is already on the store? Or has there been a German publisher in the bag since last year just waiting for the German store to open?

No, the only ones I'm allowed to show are the localised versions of some of our English language publishers.

Hi,

 

So here we are, two weeks before end of 2010 then the ads for Digital Comics (here: http://fr.playstationcomics.com/comics-coming-soon.html) in France will be wrong and we can attack in justice Sony for wrong ads (then they will be in BIG trouble, it is tottaly forbit to say something for sold and didn't doing that).

 

That a shame because in France, we buy a lot of BD ("Bandes Dessinées") i.e. Comics. But the Americain Comics represente only a little part of an urge market. (I guess only 2 or 3%).

 

But the Manga, which could be also in this digital comics tool, are to 50% of this market. A best seller, such as Naruto, is sold as 200.000 units.

 

So don't be worry in Norvegen, because Sony doesn't care also of any market except England.

 

But ok, England is perhps only an easy copy/paste of US. Then I think if Sony want to on going to be successfull in Europe, they (Japanees) need to understant that the EU is not US. We are perhaps occident vs. asia but the French, Spanish, German, etc people have a completly different mindset as US people. (e.g. The French like 100% more the japanees manga as us comics)

Everybody here hoping for the the store to be released in your territory wake up and smell the cofee SCEE does not love us..!!! Here is an official response on the BLOG...

 

I also would like to communicate an announcement regarding additional stores within the SCEE region:
We can confirm that no further Digital Comic Stores for PSP will be launched within the SCEE region. Although the current stores have been very popular and we have every confidence that they will continue to be so, it has been decided that our focus should be on maintaining and improving the current stores. We apologise to those within the PlayStation community hoping to get a Digital Comic Store in their region, and look forward to sharing new and exciting services with them throughout the year.

See you in the comments below and have a good week.

Yes we could do that but do you ever get a reply on the forum let alone on the blog that helps.. This was the first official response and yes directly bringing us back to reality telling us to bad for all of you hoping to get it.. But you wont we will focus on the other already released stores..

 

Might as well put in there see if we care cause they don't..!!

@ jmmart99

 

I would not go as far to say they were lying.. but more like keeping us on the leash and yeah eventually canceling it.. I still think this all is crazy.. If something like this can not be launched.. what will happen with a movie delivery service..

 

If you ask me we are screwed..
