Wrong, you need a flash drive with the system's current firmware on it to finish the upgrade.

sounds harder than upgrading a pc hard drive then?

Apparently you didn't sense the sarcasm Mr. Proper.

I just recently upgraded my PS3 hard drive from the original 250 to a 750. Except for not being able to do a full backup because I didn't have a good PS3 it went smoothly. I did manage to backup most of my families save files and then had to re-download games and dlc but it was worth it. Now I have more games installed at once than I ever did before and with the new free ones coming out for Plus today I will be grabbing a few more.

You know you can always purchase the free content and not download it right away right? I purchase all the free content but I don't always download it all due to either space or the desire to use the content. I figure if it's free with my subscription I might as well get it for possible future use.

1 glorious terabyte right here, and thanks to playstation plus and discounts I have more then 100 games installed with no need to delete anything for a long time haha

Will this affect your warranty?

InklingGirl2690d ago

No, Sony claims it does not void the warranty of the PS3.
