After talking a big game for a long time


Recommended Posts

Okay, so i bought a PS3 today, no games yet, but i got some in mind.

Now here is my problem. I bought a 500gb harddrive(89 bucks, which i thought was a steal, and way more than i needed) i have read reviews that it works for the PS3, but here is my problem. my ps3 is new, so nothing is stored on it, so could i do a simple swap or will i still have to get an enclosure and upload everything to the 500gb, then swap?

I plan on getting an enclosure anyways, since im switching my 60gb hard drive for the 120gb ps3, then putting my 60gb in the enclosure.

my friends dad is an IT guy, so i could get help there, but i wanna see if i could do it on my own first.

Just take off the current HDD and put in the new one. The PS3 will then format the new HDD and install the operating system. You don't have to do anything to prepare the replacement HDD.

Also, check out the PlayStation Store. I recently downloaded Burnout Paradise from it for $20. I can't be more happy with it. It's a great game to have on the hard drive rather than having it on disc. Whenever I feel like I want to race or preform stunts around Paradise City, it's just a button away.

GB, welcome to the club bro! The PS3 is a great machine. The 360 is no slouch as you already know. The PS3 just does a few more things better, you'll dig it!

See ya at the OG!!!

dont get it twisted i was on the 360 bandwagon up until like a week or two ago. the price drop got me thinking, plus im more of a movie watcher, so having a bluray is important, because PIRATED VIDEO IS ILLEGAL is not going to become the norm any time soon was a great idea for me. I like the 360 games better, but that is why im beefing up my ram and Hd on my laptop, so i can play left for dead and left for dead 2 on this thing.

most of the games i like are on both systems, plus upgrading the harddrive to 500 gbs for only 89bucks makes is perfect. ( got a lot of movies i wanna download on to this B)

Whoa dude!! Don't get it twisted?? Really?

I don't have it twisted. I was just saying that you'd like it, nothing more. I don't really care about if you like the 360 better, that's totally cool. I am NOT Wom.

If you were to say to me that you like the Wii better, I would say cool, if it's what you like then who gives a rat's azz?

You don't have to justify your reasoning for buying one to me or anyone else. It's your money, if YOU like it, that's really all that matters.

Peace.

sorry dude, i say dont get it twisted a lot, and i meant it towards me, like dont get me wrong. it twisted sounds better than me twisted. I am not justifying it, since im like you. what ever system you like it your prerogative.
