That remains to be seen for the JJ Verse, though. If nothing else, it's the first time we've seen phasers being used in an explicit point defense role, which is pretty much a revolution where Trek combat is concerned.
First time? Nah. "For the world is hollow that I've touched the sky" and "Patterns of Force" both feature the Enterprise using her phasers to knock out incoming missiles.
Conventional weapons launched by primitive cultures, yes. The Narada's weapons are implied as being fairly modern by 23rd century standards, and that makes this an interesting precedent.
