PlayStation DVR torne beats Kinect and Move sales in Japan

Video recorder is Japan’s most in-demand peripheral

Japan’s PlayStation 3 peripheral, torne (pronounced toe-roo-nay) outsold both Microsoft’s Kinect and Sony’s own Move by a large margin last year in Japan with 784,000 units sold. Kinect and Move sold 90,000 and 170,000 units, respectively.

Similar to PlayTV, torne allows users to record television shows with their PS3 while playing games. It also awards trophies for watching certain television shows. torne is not available in North American territories, where the ATSC digital standard is used for television transmissions.
