In accompaniment to the recent PSP firmware update adding direct portable access to the PlayStation Store, Sony has today launched an updated Media Manager application, available for download now from the new PSP PlayStation Store homepage. Basically, it’s a replacement for the old PC storefront, but like previous incarnations it also allows users to intuitively organize and sync up their PSP image, video and music content. The Media Manager is completely free to download, and if you already own the legacy or retail versions you’ll be able to update your software to Media Manager PRO v3.0 at no charge.

“The latest firmware update for the PSP provides today’s entertainment enthusiasts with a truly mobile entertainment device by enabling the downloading of content on the go,” said Susan Panico, senior director of PlayStation®Network, SCEA. “Because of the enhanced functionality, we felt it was necessary to expand the role of the PC application by giving users a means to further acquire and organize content for their PSP in a way that is intuitive and familiar.”
