WD has just announced that it has started volume shipping its 500GB 2.5-inch Scorpio Blue drive, a notebook drive with 250GB per platter and a 5,400rpm spin speed. Seagate expects to ship its half terabyte 2.5-incher before the end of the year.
so will my PS3! sony really thought ahead when designing the ps3 soo much so the only difference the next released next-gen cosole (next xbox will be first to the market) will not be much different from the ps3 in features apart from a stronger graphics chip thats how well thought out the ps3 is.
With 100/200 GB Blu-ray discs on the horizon, will it just require a firmware update for the PS3 to support larger discs or would one need to physically replace the drive? (serious question)
well according to Hitachi who created developed the 100gb Blu-Ray Discs, they stated the 100gb discs can be read on Regular BD drives, all it takes is a firmware update for the drive to read it. now beyond 100gb, we dont know. BTW BD-live, aka BD profile 2.0 is now Manadatory BTW.
and a price reduced ps3 to $199 and I WILL buy a ps3. In 2010. Does that mean 2010 is the year of the ps3?
Middle of next year a terabyte on my ps3. hhmmm... I'm drooling with anticipation.... SWEET! I guess for now I can go with a 500 gigs. This is just one of the features that makes ps3 future proof...
already got a WD scorpio in my PS3, by the time that tera byte WD comes out it will be time for me to upgrade. I love my PS3. LBP here we come!
I could have 1TB on my PS3!!Microsoft want's to preach that downloads are the future when thier biggest hardrive for the 360 is 120gb or something like that but you can't put 1TB on your PS3,action's speak louder than words!!
MS could always release a 1TB HDD. It'll just cost too much for most people.
yeah they could BUT do you have a spare million or 2 lieing around to pay for it??
Microsoft's current hdd size is 120gb and Sony's current for the ps3 is 80gb? Sony is not offering this drive, but giving you the ability to have a bigger drive...so lets get that straight first. Next, before you get all excited about 1 TB on your ps3.....first let it become a reality, before you start bragging. I would hate for their to be a compatibility issues. Also, just the way you are bragging, there will be plenty of 360 owners who will say that they can simply stream from their computer's hdd....and we have no clue what Microsoft's next move might/could be. With that said, depending on how the sales are for the Friday after Thanksgiving...I might pick up a bigger hdd for my ps3 then.
Dam 1TB, you gotta hand it to Sony they really thought ahead with the ps3.
Just installed a 320GB hdd in my PS3 and thought this should be enough for this generation, oh how wrong I was ! The ration of 5GB installation to a 1TB hdd is even less than that of single PS2 save file to the entire 8MB card.
But damn that looks tempting.
Imagine 1TB PS3 :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just did now i have to clean my pants. Thanks alot
i h ave a 120gb now in my ps3 will see the prices after the holidays before i buy again looking for 320gb but will get a 500gb if its a good price
Too little too late, I mean come one, a few £100 can buy you PC's with larger HD's in them, so knowing what people are like they'll find 1TB too little in about 2 years.
its just the 2.5inch which will be good by hten, the 3.5 inch which mot PCs take will be alot bigger
By that time, I'll have already own a SSD, which runs circles around any mechanical drive.
Not in all tasks.
LOL i agree in its mechanics but it doesnt run circles around standard disc prices. an 80gb ssd is more expensive than a 500gb standard drive
Can the PS3 read hdd's bigger than 500gbs?
probably,but I'll go for the 500 or wait a little for the 750
yes it can the only real limitation is the physical size.. standard computer drives are large already and cheap.. notebook drives are not.. which is why this is not just a ps3 news things this is also news for people with laptops that want to upgrade to larger drives but couldnt..
Yea... that sound really good for my ps3..
