Max HDD Size Allowed?

#1Azuma_NarooNPosted 11/18/2012 8:31:58 PM
I never actually found out about this, but I've heard conflicting reports that the PS3 caps out at 500GB, and some say that it allows up to 1TB, while others say there's no limit. So what is it then?

The limit is the physical size.

So in other words, there is no real limit besides the capacity of the HDD itself? Ah, thanks.

Remember to be mindful of the height. There are different 2.5" drives and you want one that is 9.5mm tall max.

This is the hdd I put in my super slim -- I originally used it on my slim ps3 about a year ago, maybe a little less.

It's 1tb... After the re-format you will have 935gb of free space.

Technically, the limit is governed by the FAT32 format that the PS3 uses, which allows a max volume size of 2tb. The largest capacity HDD that will fit in the PS3 is 1tb at the moment, though.
