Does anyone know how the HDD will be upgraded
For this PS3 I can't tell if it can be upgraded or not. I watched an unboxing video on gamespot and the guys there could not tell if how to the HDD was upgraded.
Does anyone know; can the new superslim be upgraded using a standard laptop HDD like the others or does it require a sony proprietary disc drive?
Since The US models already have a hard drive, it is reasonable to assume that it will have the mounting bracket inside, and that a hard drive swap is possible.
Of course we will know for sure once someone actually does it
You can delete old games you don't play anymore, it is possible.
I really liked that I could got to the store and just buy any laptop HDD and slip it into my playstation and be off and running. I have upgraded the HDD on every single PS3 I have owned. I have also helped several friends upgrade theirs.
With the first and second PS3 you can see where the HDD replacement slot is located but with the new I can't see a HDD slot anywhere. So I was wondering what the upgrade path was. I tried to find the manual for the new PS3 online but sony has not published the manual for the newest PS3 yet.
I know I am not the typical user. I love the ability to update the HDD with out difficulty. I know that the Sony reps said that they have seen that people tend to buy new devices with larger HDDs then upgrade the HDD. So I don't think they made the new devices supper easy to upgrade like they did the earlier models.
the side nearest the disc drive pops off reviling the HDD tray. The HDD appears to be a 2.5 inch SATA HDD. Based on what I can see it looks like it can be upgraded just as easy as the older PS3s.
I was worried that Sony would make it so we required a proprietary hard drive and it looks like they did not.
