It appears that Sony may be looking to bring the eBook market to their gaming devices, as rumors regarding a PlayStation-based eBook plan called “Storyteller” have just surfaced.

According to a report from MCV, Sony is planning to announce this new service at E3, which will allegedly allow users to view interactive documents and books on their PlayStation 3. Support for the Vita is apparently still in question, but honestly, I can’t image why anyone would want to read a book on that 5 inch screen anyway.
The source also believes that there will be a major emphasis on children’s content, which is a bit perplexing considering the general focus that Sony has toward a more mature audience.
As one would suspect, “Storyteller” will have its own dedicated section in the PlayStation Store. Mind you, since Sony has refused to comment on this report, we’ll need to treat this as nothing more than a rumor for the time being.
What do you think about the possibility of having built-in eReader functionality in your PlayStation 3 and/or PS Vita? Sound off in the comments below with your thoughts.

All I know is I can't wait for Monday night. Lots of groans or lots of "ooh's" are sure to be expected.

Yeah my bright 52" samsung lcd will mix great with reading a long book :silly:
I guess if they are gearing it towards children they will be interative stories like what you find in the app stores for cell phones.

GAWD DAT HYPE!

I got an idea for our press conference shenanignas that may kill us.

MS: 1 shot of Whiskey everytime something cringe-worthy happens

Sony: 1 shot of tequila everytime something awesome happens

Nintendo: 1 shot of gin everytime reggie shows a sales graph.


I'll prearrange for a stomach pump to be around. :P

This would make sense on the Vita/PSP, not a PS3.
