It's the most expensive memory card format. But I want a PSP and I can see buying a Sony camera (can I use Duo cards with the adapter in cameras which take regular Memory Sticks?).

So it seems only Sandisk and Sony make them and Sony just costs more.

For instance, Fry's is selling a 1 GB Sandisk for $129 but the Sony for $209.

In the Fry's screen, it said Sandisk Memory Stick Pro Duo for PSP. Does that mean it's too slow for cameras like the upcoming Sony DSCT33, which has a pretty fast burst mode and the ability to record 640x480 video?

The PSP of course will be able to play back video from the Memory Stick Pro Duo cards as well as run game code.

Are their differences in Memory Stick Pro Duo cards performance which may prevent certain uses?

I've also heard that you need Magic Gate Memory Sticks for certain DRM'd material, such as music downloads you may buy from Sony. But the PS2 memory cards also use Magic Gate so you wonder about PSP game saves.

But it seems only 256 MB and lower Memory Stick Duo cards explicitly carry the Magic Gate label.
