Going some way towards making up for the other day’s GT5 disappointment, Sony yesterday announced a new gadget that will enable PS3 owners in Japan to record digital terrestrial TV to their PS3s’ hard drives and/or external hard disks. It’s called the “Torne” and it’s due out in March at 9,980 yen.


Even this announcement has its own in-built let-downs, though, because for whatever reason the device is not capable of/willing to record BS or CS broadcasts. So this really is just for vanilla Japanese telly programs. Still, let’s look on the bright side – you’ll be able to record and enjoy the likes of these gems at your leisure:


リンカーン, aka “Lincoln”, aka one of Japan’s legendary Downtown-fronted comedy variety programs (set your Torne to record on Tuesdays at 10pm!)



松本人志の○○な話, aka “Hitoshi Matsumoto’s ○○ Talk”, aka an extremely funny discussion among comedians about the things they like, scary experiences they’ve had, etc. (Tuesdays at 11pm!)
