    external hard drive. suggestions?

    Post by passivefamiliar on Fri Nov 09, 2012 5:13 pm

    Well, i've filled my ps3 memory several times. 160Gb originally. I have no upgraded HDD or anything aftermarket, its out of the box parts still. But im considering getting like, a 3 or 4 TB hard drive. Yes. Tera. The world is going digital, might as well up the memory. Plus the jump from 1TB-4TB isn't much considering. Money isn't a big deal, but i'm stingy to. But...i want it to be worth it and i understand the "you get what you pay for concept". Anyone have a external hard drive type solution for my ps3 memory? I want to put music/movies, and FULL GAME DOWNLOADS on it and play them right from the hard drive. No re-installing or anything.

    I'm not sure games will play from the external drive actually. I have a 1Tb external that I used for video and music files and of course backed up the PS3 and I wanna say that the system won't look for an external drive in the games section.

    As for suggestions, Western Digital ones generally get favorable reviews

    Well....that blows. I was really hoping for a easy fix. Guess i'll have to delete and finish more. May upgrade the HDD drive itself, get a 750gb or something at the very least. Bullocks! Sony needs to do something about this space issue. Fingers crossed for the ps4 whatever, or more so...the "orange box" if steam makes a console its game over you know they'll have storage space.
