Media Manager software now free to download

Sony is offering their PSP Media Manager software ... FOR FREE. This nifty bit of code allows you to easily transfer files, such as photos, music and videos to your PSP. Most readers of PSP Fanboy should already know how to use PSP's file system, but for those that are new to the system, this is a definite must-have. You'll have to download the program from the Japanese site, but rest assured -- as Kotaku found out, the program will run in English.

A Pro version is also available for those that want more. Who thinks that Sony should bundle this kind of software with every PSP? We certainly do. Sony should make it easy to get the most out of their hardware.

Sony Media Manager goes Pro, supports PSN downloads

Sony's Media Manager software allows PSP owners to easily transfer music, videos and save data between their PCs and PSP systems. Although we always believed the software should be bundled with the PSP for free, Sony is keen on charging a nominal fee for its use, rendering it much less attractive. Well, it looks like Media Manager is getting a significant update in its new "Pro" revision:
  • Windows Vista support
  • PSN support - "This new feature lets you transfer downloadable PLAYSTATION Network games from your PC to the PSP system and back, including any Saved Data."
  • FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Converter) support
  • Backup mode, audio shuffle and search features.
The software will retail for €9.99 in Europe (no US release has been announced). Most exciting of the new features must be PSN support, which will transfer downloadable games to the system. Hopefully, this won't be the only way to get games onto the PSP. In Japan, the PSP Store has a free client you can download. We're certain that SCEE will do the same.

[Thanks, Paul K.!]
