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.
