Sony Takes Next Step To PSP As Full-Service Portable Media Player

Sony is distributing the PSP Media Manager, “the easiest way to move music, movies and more to your PSP system.” I’ve already seen some descriptions that call it iTunes-like. Well, sort of, in the sense that it’s a way to manage, transfer and convert content but it’s not integrated with a store … yet. It also runs $20 download, $30 for the packaged version. According to Russell Beattie, it’s no iTunes clone as a manager but it works as promised. I agree with him — they won’t keep be able to keep charging given the slick free options out there.
Meanwhile, as BetaNews reports, Sony is busy trying to clean up a CD DRM mess.
