re: playstation 3 HDD space

You dont have to delete the save games, just the files that the game installs when you first load it up. Delete the files from the games you dont play and you make space for more.

re: playstation 3 HDD space

What size drive does your PS3 currently have?

what you'd do is back up your HDD to an external HDD, remove the PS3 drive install the new one and then restore the back up.

For a compatible HDD see the following

re: playstation 3 HDD space

Just to add to Stephens post; the PS3 is designed so that the internal hard drive can be easily replaced and when a new one is installed it will automatically configure it ready for use. As Stephen said, all you need to do is backup your data (Game saves etc) and restore them onto your bigger drive.

Here is a good guide on what needs to be done - http://uk.gamespot.com/features/6176090/index.html

Here is a video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuyQPW3bDS0

re: playstation 3 HDD space

Just about any 2.5 inch Sata (II) drive is compatable but there is no point getting a 7200rpm drive as it will be noisy. Seagate and Western Digital seem to be the preferred choice and I think Stephen was just giving links to reasonably priced decent drives.

re: playstation 3 HDD space

Stephen's earlier post has links to two recommended HDDs, both Western Digital HDDs available at Play.com.

Just wondering though, how have you managed to run out of space? How many games have you got which have actually installed stuff on the PS3? (they don't all install). Is there nothing you can delete to make room?


If you do get a new HDD, they are very easy to fit, & doing so does not invalidate your warranty (if it is still valid). As mentioned, you would need to back up your saves first.

Re: playstation 3 HDD space

Well those ones I linked to on Play.com are highly recommended for a start.

I plan on getting one soon as my 60GB HDD only has about 18GB free at the moment.
