Strategy guides heading to PSN

PlayView service launches in Japan soon.

Japanese gamers will soon be able to view strategy guides through PlayStation Network, Sony has announced.

Andriasang reports that the PlayView for Games service will launch in Japan tomorrow, allowing users to download strategy guides, art books and other game-related printed material.

All content can be displayed in high resolution on PlayStation 3 and PSP. The service boasts zoom and search functions too.

The first game guide to go live will be for Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. It will retail for 600 (around 4.60). Although it's a re-release of a printed guide it will come enhanced with video clips and music from the game.

There's no word yet on whether the service will launch outside of Japan.
