Sony Unveils 'Nasne' Home Entertainment Hub For PS3 and PS Vita

Sony has announced 'nasne' for release in Japan later in the year, offering enhanced functionality, building upon its 'torne' digital video recorder. Nasne is a network recorder and media storage device boasting 500 GB of storage with a built in CS/BS tuner.

Nasne is a standalone home entertainment hub that has superior capabilities to torne, able to connect to your home network to let you share content between your PS3, PS Vita, Sony Vaio laptop, Sony Tablets and Xperia phones. Nasne can also stream from two devices simultaneously, while the broadcast records. You'll also be able to set up recordings on the go using your PS Vita or Xperia phone.

Torne will continue to work with nasne, although nasne adds CS/BS to torne's digital terrestrial only functionality. This is reflected in the price of nasne, which is tagged at ¥16,980 compared to the price of torne, which is available for ¥9980. Nasne will be coming to Japan in July, but has yet to be confirmed for launch in North America, Europe or other territories outside of Japan.

Just what I'm needing! Been buying games like inFamous on disc recently just so I can delete the free download version and save precious disk space.

And what's the point in buying a game if you're going to delete it?

@4 what if you like to keep said content?

But for me it worked out cheaper to buy a 750gb internal hdd for $75 aud...

@3 sorry but I dont think it'll allow you to store ps3 games on it, just music and stuff which a small exsternal hdd/usb drive works fine, my $60aud external holds only 200gb of movies, max of 500gb :/

In other words only good for the japanese market.

It uses Torne so it`ll have the same trophies. The torne is awesome when I wanna record something straight to my PS3 but like most of you guys my PS3 is nearly full. So with the 500GB HDD I will be able to record more stuff!!

@3 I find it hard to believe you have 640gb of PSN games/DLC..Good luck transferring it to your "6" PS3's.. That's gonna be a pain in the ass considering Sony only lets you use your PSN ID on 2 PS3's at a time lol.

But yeah 17k Yen ~$200, seems kind over priced for what ever it's supposed to do.

@9 I have my PSN ID on 3 PS3s.
And I've very nearly filled my 320GB hard drive from downloaded games, only had the PS3 two years. So it is believable.

Personally I think this is a great idea, I keep all my Movies, songs and pictures on my PS3. I have 92 PS3 games and 40 PSN games. I use a 500gb hardrive and I only have 120gb left, plus I continuously add on more movies etc. But with the Nasne I can put all my movies on it and then delete them off my PS3.

Is this just a NAS that functions only with Sony products? Because for $200 you can grab a 3 - 4 terabyte NAS that you can access anywhere so long as you have network access.

@15 Just do what I done and put a 1TB hd in your PS3 and you will then have more room or you could just stick all your movies on a big external HD and that would save you loads of room.

It's basically a media storage system that is compatible across Sony products, like what Windows 7 lets you do with media sharing on the same network, except that nasne is a storage unit in itself. So in essence it's a external HDD, PVR, and a network streaming device all in one. Doesn't sound like a bad deal for about 17k yen considering what it can do.

Sorry, guys, I've been reading all your comments and I'm still a bit confused. It's a Sony HDD Storage device... and a what now? Is it basically a PS3 memory extension? Oh, by the way @23 & 15, do you two not have anything else to do with your time? @23 200 psn games?! Where do you find time to play them? I've had my PS3 for 2 years, only have twenty games and now Sony stupidly announce a PS4? What the hell?

@26, Unless I've just returned from a year-long coma, Sony has done no such thing as far as officially announcing the PS4. If you had read a little further down on whatever rumor milling site you found that information on, Sony would have a quote saying "We don't comment on rumors and/or speculation." I do agree with the others above who said that putting a larger hdd in your PS3 is a better option. If you don't have a second PS3 to do the A to B transfer, then putting the bigger hdd in the PS3 as soon as you get it is advisable.

@13.. you know you don't have to open your ps3 to swap HDD right? there is a little slot on the side to make the switch I did it with my fat ps3 to swap the original 80 gb to a 500 Gb.. took almost 6 hours to reformat the HDD but there is no big deal in changing hard drive.

On topic, I can't see the point of getting an additional external HDD.. for 150$ you can get a TB of space on an external hd... Sony stop working on useless product and give us the ps4 damn!

I want to see some kind of memory card for PS3 like for the PS2. And I am not talking about online storage that requires membership.

@17 Although comment 9 is incorrect seeing as you can 'use' your account on any number of systems, he was referring to Activated Systems, which currently stands at TWO. Hope this clears up the confusion.
