Sony has released its PlayStation 3-compatible digital recording system to PlayStation Vita, for free in Japan.
Sony's "nasne" DVR system, an external digital recorder, can now be accessed through the PlayStation Store. Users throughout Japan who download "torne PlayStation Vita" can use their PS Vita as a remote interface for the nasne recording system. This allows programs to be wirelessly streamed, recorded, or copied to the PS Vita.
torne PlayStation Vita will remain free until Feb. 27, 2013, at which point it will cost 800 Yen (roughly $9.32). Sony has yet to announce any plans to bring the system to North America.
