PS3 hard drive question

#1lonelywolf23786Posted 12/5/2012 5:23:25 AM
Hi, I need some answers about the PS3 hard drive.

About 10 months ago, my friend's 250gb PS3 got wet and the console no longer functions. My question is:

Is it possible to remove the 250gb hard drive from that PS3 to let's say I'm getting him the new 12gb PS3 Super Slim and put it in there. I heard that if I did that, the old hard drive has to be formatted in order to work on the new PS3. Is that correct?

Also, I don't think my friend minds if all the data on the 250gb is formatted, although I remember he progressed near the end of Dark Souls.

Thanks for answering

Yes if you move the drive from one PS3 to another, the PS3 itself will format it and wipe everything on it before it can be used in the new system.
