With PlayStation Plus now offering so many free downloads, now is a good a time as any to look at upgrading your PS3 hard drive.
Step 1: Buy hard drive Step 2: Remove old hard drive Step 3: Install new hard drive Step 4: Enjoy
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?
No, Sony claims it does not void the warranty of the PS3.
iStream... 60GB -> 320GB 200GB Free Space... PS3 Media Server FTW!
Call me clueless. What is the largest hard drive that the ps3 slim can support internally? I have the 250 gig, but I'm down to about 30 gigs.
Bubbles up to u sir. Lol.
To my knowledge the ps3 can support up to 1tb internally. You'll want to do a complete back up to usb HHD first. And for the lesser known details, make sure it's no larger than 9.5mm & is SATA 1.0 compatible.
Bubbles up to u too sir. Thanks for the info.
