Upgrading to a 1TB HDD was the best idea. Should have done it sooner.

Seems like a little much for the PS3 but i guess it depends on how much use the store. I still have 40gb in mine and it's still fine but I really don't use my ps3 much anymore.


I couldn't go with the 40GB or even the 20GB cause I know what I was going to be playing those sizes wouldn't be right for me. At the time I got mine the 120GB just came out and got that.

Anyway, I would really recommend it for anyone reaching their limit. Swapping the drives over was very straightforward, and I did it in about twenty minutes with no loss of data.




How is it done with no loss of data? That's why I've been holding off on switching my 320G out....last time I switched hard drives I had to download everything again...If it can be done without any loss...I'll do it tonight. Thanks!

With me I was thinking on transferring my data onto like my brother's PlayStation3, under a profile for me, then transfer back over onto after the updated harddrive. Though I'm not sure if that'd be feasible and if anyone had done that.

I decided for christmas I wouldn't get yet another game (Backlog is stacking) and decided it was most cost effective to buy a 500GB compared to a 1TB. I too downloaded 2 years of PSplus backlog and installed all my physical copy games for the first time ever. I will probably run out of room but I don't need all of those 14GB games on my HDD forever.

Ive had a 320 gb in ps3 for over 3 years(originally it was a 60 gb) and im not even close to filling it up. 1 TB is overkill, unless you think your ps3 is a personal computer

Unless one wouldn't want to try upgrading their computer. I do more console gaming than I do PC gaming so I really woudn't need to upgrade my PC when I could do that with my PS3.

Quick question. Where can I obtain these HDD at?


op linked one of them in the opening post.


Only problem with that is I don't live in the UK.


Really? You can't figure out how to buy a hard drive?

I stream my movies and music and just leave the harddrive for games. It took around 36 hours for me to backup my PS3 that's 320GB and 70% full, so I try to keep the size down.

Between all of PS+, installs, game data, patches, demos, PSN purchases, music and movies, I would have filled two 320gb HDD's and then some. 1tb is not overkill, especially when there's a good few years left in the gen.

50 is really not an exorbitant amount for the convenience.
