- While currently in development and set to launch for both PC and Macintosh first, the Longbox Digitial Comics service is also being tested as a new addition to the Xbox Dashboard.
To quote: "Working in a similar way to iTunes it will allow you to browse, purchase and then read a broad variety of comics directly from your console. Functions such as zooming in and out will also be available to those with a scrutinising eye.
Featuring works from celebrated publishers such as Top Cow and Image Comics, users will be able to either subscribe or purchase specific titles from a whole range of both current series as well as archival collections.
CEO of Longbox, Rantz Hoseley
states "With the Twitter/ Facebook/ Last.fm integration it was very obvious to us that this was a great fit."
Whilst prices are yet to be confirmed, Hoseley has said that they were aiming at 99 cents for single issues and $10 for a 20-issue archival edition for US audiences."
