Now make it work with plain old SD cards and I'll definitely get one to compliment my PS4.

If anything, their memory cards need an extreme price drop. They're up to 4X higher in cost than comparable MicroSD cards, and they're not even that fast. This becomes an even bigger problem for people who have accounts for different regions, since changing accounts requires you to swap out or reformat your memory card (thanks to an update by Sony about a year ago).

Why is this a new feature for the Vita? The older PSPs (not sure about the original fat PSP, but the slim ones) can be charged using a USB cable.

The PSP used Mini USB, while modern devices use Micro USB. It's a completely different connector type.
