Expandable Memory for PS3?


Is there any way of getting more memory for your PS3? I have an 80 GB PS3 with hardly any memory left, and I need more memory for installing more PS3 games because, as you know, they take up a lot of space. So, for instance, if I run out of memory, would I have to buy a new PS3, or is there any way of expanding the memory?

  1. Upgrade your PS3’s hard drive. Any 2.5 SATA with 5400rpm(any laptop hard drives) will work with PS3.

    You can install up to 500gb.

  2. NO, you don’t have to buy a new PS3 just because the memory has run low. You can delete older game data so that you can make more room for your newer games ( I suggest deleting game data of games you don’t play anymore and I don’t mean the save data you can keep that) or you can always buy a bigger HDD and install it. Any 2.5″ SATA internal laptop drive with 5400rpm will work, you may want at least 320Gb. I replaced my original 20Gb drive with a 160Gb you can find videos to help with replacing the drives on you tube its really simple.
