Sony Unveils Nasne

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its… Nasne?? I am not sure how to pronounce its name, but this thing could turn out to be awesome.

So what exactly is it? Sony describes it as a recording device with a 500GB HDD. It allows you to watch and record video and play back with many Sony devices via apps. It also boasts dedicated tuners for “digital terrestrial and satellite broadcast.” So we can record TV?

I am guessing this thing will be some sort of a full blown media center… can’t wait to see more about it.

This info is from the Japanese branch of Sony Computer Entertainment. Maybe that is the reason for the weird name right now. I think we may see this in the U.S. under a different name, When I first saw it, I thought it was “Sony N-sane” which would make more sense to me.

Any way, there is more info from the press release down past the break, as well as a nice gallery of this sexy and mysterious device.

EDIT: Oops.. forgot to add price. Nasne is supposed to go on sale for 16,980 yen. For us ‘Mericans, that is about $200 which is pretty darn affordable. Read more

Venix Downgrade 4.11 to 3.55 UPDATED

This is kinda cool. Looks like recently a couple of developers who go by OverX and HwapX have developed a nifty little tool called “Venix Downgrade” to assist in downgrading your PlayStation 3 from firmware 4.11 to 3.55.

Now, don’t think you are going to run out and do this with a little determination and a flash drive. Unfortunatley you will still need a NAND/NOR flasher of some sorts. This is compatible with; Progskeet, E3 Flasher, and Teensy 2.0++.

UPDATE: This has been proven to cause bricks… so I do not recommend using it at all!!

Playstation 3 Firmware 4.11 Is Live

Well, looks like Sony have blessed us with another firmware update, this one being 4.11. I heard not too long ago that this update was not going to be mandatory, but I was forced to update before I could login.

So far there is no information on the update from sony or anywhere else. We can assume though that it is just a “security” update or that it works out some “bugs”.

So obviously Sony found some hole that they decided they needed to fix so their beloved PS3 wasn’t hacked to shit again =)
