Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

Yesterday, the day before Nasne's release, Sony suddenly postponed the media hub because units were damaged during shipment. The Nasne that sister site Kotaku Japan ordered online, however, arrived today—fit as a fiddle and undamaged. Hello unboxing time!

The Nasne is a networked recorder that offers 500GB of storage as well as the ability to stream media to Sony hardware like the PS3, the PS Vita, Xperia smartphones, Sony laptops and tablets.

Nasne kind of looks like a first gen PlayStation 3, but short, small, and fat. Nasne is currently Japan-only. No word on a Western release.

Anyone remember the QCast tuner with PS2 support?

There’s not much to record on TV these days and certainly better ways to do it! The problem with PVRs these days is they only work on broadcast TV, unlike VCRs that would record anything that would display on your TV, and you could even capture another VCR video on a second VCR.

My TV can capture anything it displays and spit it out to USB which is handy because similarly it works with NetFlix, BD, YouTube, games, anything you can plug into the TV. This should be the standard way and no need for external devices, TVs have the horsepower to do this, they can run apps and do this sort of thing.

That was one nice feature about the Xbox One but it didn’t work on everything. Sucks that it’s still not ubiquitous and easy to do. I see people holding up their phones to capture their TV, you should be able to push a button the remote and just share it to your phone or whatever.
