Good thing i just replaced my gb hard drive with a 500 gb hard drive.

VersusEM2673d ago (Edited 2673d ago )

hey where would I get one of those, how much would it cost, and how would I installed it because God knows I need more space, I only have 5 gigs left. I know I'm asking alot of questions sorry for that.

Seijoru2673d ago

You could find a 500 for around 50-60$ and use a youtube video for installation.

xX-StolenSoul-Xx2673d ago

Go on Amazon and search Ps3 Hard Drive, they will show you which ones are compatible with ps3, i would Recommended a Western digital one.

Elwenil2673d ago

I get all my stuff from NewEgg or TigerDirect.

Soldierone2673d ago

Just to help out. All you need is a 2.5 inch Laptop harddrive. There isn't an "official Sony Replacement" drive, like 360's.

To replace it, there is a little slat on the PS3. Its on the front of slims, and on the back of fats(if you have the fat sitting vertical its on the bottom). Just pop it off and its pretty self explanatory from that point. Obviously don't do it on carpet (static electricity) and dont touch the drives as much as possible, keep the old one in the hard drive bag so it doesn't get ruined.

Come on this isn't even freakin news! You're telling us something we already know! Who approved this crap anyways?

Hey did you know that PSN went down due to hackers last month? Maybe you can write an article about that /s

EeJLP-2673d ago

If you only know how to add you may have only 5 gigs left, but it's not like you can't delete anything. Old game install data you don't play very often? Demos you haven't played in months or years? That would be an easy place to start.

There is no 'only 5 gigs left'.

ProjectVulcan2672d ago

If sony aren't stupid they will have set up dedicated content servers and extra bandwidth for this stuff ready for when it goes live so they don't bring down the normal PSN servers.

Anyone can see that as soon as it goes up the servers are gonna be hit up for petabytes of bandwidth in the first few weeks...

AAACE52672d ago

Uhhh... Did I miss something?

It says Infamous only requires 6.88 Gb's and LBP only requires 2.21 Gb's!

I was worried because I was under the impression that these games were a lot larger.

Anyway, I have lots of space on my 250 Gb slim, so no stress on me!

RedDead2672d ago

Infamous 6.8? What the hell was Blu ray for?

RedDevils2672d ago (Edited 2672d ago )

Infamous 6.8gb no wonder ps3 games were pirate like crazy, I though it be like 20gb plus lol

Menech2672d ago

Actually most games still fit quite easily inside of 7GB.

It's only games with tons of FMV's and RPG's that struggle often.

What he said ^^^^^^^^^^, use you tube for the installation if your not so sure about what your doing. But yeah, any 2.5 HDD will work. Don't worry if its 7200 rpm, installed one on my b/c ps3 almost over a year now and have had no problems

gamingdroid2673d ago

For those that re-activated their account on PSN. What the heck do you do if you don't have access to your PS3?

pixelsword2673d ago

good question... I guess you can either wait until you have access, or try to login online, and see if they will e-mail you further instructions.

Quagmire2673d ago

Question for anyone who can help.

Ive played Infamous on Disc and Ive still got the save as well as most of the trophies. I no longer have the disc, however, If i am to download the game from the store, will the saves/trophy progression still be compatible with the downloaded game? Or will I have to start from scratch?

agentace2673d ago

yeah it will work. its what i did with lbp, got free download from ps+

2672d ago
mastemikegee2672d ago

Me too :) No more install worries...

Tired2673d ago

LIES! LBP is 2 gig, nowhere near 8. Media Molecule stripped it down when it was first introduced to the plus package.

cyborg2673d ago

I've corrected it. Can you tell me the exact size of the download?

MakiManPR2673d ago

InFamous – 6.88 GB?

Are u sure? wow this will takes years here

NewZealander2673d ago

oh thank god for that, i was expecting to download about 8GB for LBP, nice to know it wont take all day to download now:)

Quagmire2673d ago

Agreed, especially with NZ's crappy net plans and speeds

NewZealander2672d ago

yeah nz speeds aint too flash, but i still get around a GB per hour so it could be worse, at least it aint telecoms crap speeds.

MonkJammas2673d ago

Hopefully store is up soon. Need to play through inFamous in time for the second one.

OcelotRigz2673d ago

Same here, never finished the 1st one and want to before InFamous 2 hits.

Handy information, thought InFamous would be bigger, glad its on 6GB.
Have all the others already though.

RedDevils2672d ago

never play the first one so this will be a treat :P

psb2673d ago

all of these games already, so it's useless for me. Can't belief Sony hasn't come up with a plan for those who already own these titles. Atleast an extra month of PS Plus would have been nice.

waltyftm2673d ago

Unlcky. I myself found it very interesting and will be downloading InFamous and Wipeout.

mastiffchild2673d ago

You get an extra month of PS+,what you on about? If you sub you get extra. Also, you get an extra of something you would otherwise have paid for unlike non plus users who probably won't even use it or they'd already subscribe. So you ARE getting something you want free from Sony. I've got all the PSP games on offer and have played four of the five games too-only DN is a virgin to me and the free Plus is no use to me or I'd be a subber already.

Seriously, anything on top of your lost days(which they're giving you and SOE subscribers too)is a massive bonus really. Stop whining cos you were a tad unlucky and think yourself fortunate, in the first place, to have been able to afford the games anyway. Moaning about freebies when you actually get something you want is beyond me really.

Pintheshadows2673d ago

Seriously? I thought this had been discussed. Just trade LBP and Infamous and download the free versions. That is a win win situation.

VersusEM2673d ago

Can't wait to get Wipeout HD, & Super Stardust HD, been waiting to get those games for a while. I already have Infamous and LBP, and on my European Account, I get Dead Nation and Ratchet and Clank:Quest for Booty.

Can't wait to get all of this plus Outland.

beavis4play2673d ago

SSHD is a blast! if i start playing - i can go for a couple hours.
