So the time has come where my PS3 has out of space on its lame 60GB HDD. And i'm looking for new one.

This new hard drive has to be in the region of 250GB to 500GB and it has to be a 2.5" Internal SATA.


I've found this 320GB one on play.com for £50, which seems pretty reasonable. http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3516598/West...le/Product.html
I just wanted to know if anyone knows a place i can get one cheaper, or a larger one for a reasonably cheap price.

Dabs.com

Ebuyer.com

Might have to add some extra search criteria, such as price or just look through the list.

That is where I have got both my HDDs from

only problem here is i have heard the PS3 has got a HDD sixe limiter coded in so that you cant put one big enough to store large amounts of games i think it might be 250GB.

i don't have experience, but i think you have to use an external drive, which can get sorta expensive for just a transfer.

It was a long time ago when i did this for a friend but im almost certain when you stick the new HD in and turn it on it asks you if you want to transfer what was on the old HD to the new one i had a guide up showing that screen i think (no doubt im talking senseless shit this was back in '06)

OR

You could connect the two upto your PC and copy all the files off your old HD to your new one

don't forget to delete some game data, for games you don't really play anymore. those could eat up a few GBs

even the games you downloaded, you can delete them if you don't play em much anymore... because, the store will remember your purchase and allow you to re-download the game (up to 3 times i think) if you feel like playing it again at a later date...

this is the problem i have with my weak ass 40GB PS3... i am at about 8GB available currently... that's pry enough for a few more games or so but, i'll soon have to start thinking about deleting old files and junk i don't even use anymore, which there's a few of those...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.
