Sony Computer Entertainment’s plans to release its new Nasne network video recording device were delayed yesterday in Japan, but we were unsure of the reasons behind it.
Today, it’s become clear that the company says the internal 500 gigabyte hard drives in some of the units had become damaged during shipment from the factory, so Sony decided they were going to reinspect al the units, causing the delay. The device’s release was scheduled to be accompanied by a firmware update to version 1.50, this has also been delayed until the products ship out. Nasne is a followup to the popular Torne PlayStation 3 DVR kit. Unlike Torne, Nasne is a general device that can interface with not just PlayStation 3, but tablets, smartphones and computers as well.
