The software package is only available online as a download priced at $19.95 and can be obtained from the Sony Media Software website. A boxed version will be available from the same site from December 1st for $29.95 and will include a 6 foot long USB 2.0 cable, sample media and five free song downloads from the CONNECT music store. The software is the latest attempt from Sony to emphasis the PSP’s non-games applications, in this case its ability to be used as a video and music player and digital photo album. The Media Manager provides quick navigation and thumbnail previews of all photo and video files, while also allowing users to select from among different quality settings for the transferred media. The application supports most popular video and audio formats, including .mp4, .avi, .mpg, .mov, .wmv, .mp3, .wav, .wma and others. The manager also makes it easier to locate and subscribe to RSS feeds including podcasts, video blogs and PSP formatted magazines. "Since its inception, the PSP system has quickly become the device of choice for portable entertainment. Whether it's games, music, movies photos or Internet access, no other portable media device provides as much functionality and entertainment as the PSP system," said John Koller, senior product manager, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "PSP Media Manager software enables consumers to easily manage and move their favorite media from their PC to their PSP. The PSP system, coupled with the new PSP Media Manager software, provides a complete solution for truly enjoying the PSP system's portable entertainment capabilities."
