yes, but just an FYI all the PS3 uses is a 2.5"  SATA laptop/notebook hard drive, that one there includes the mounting bracket but you can easily use the bracket thats currently inside the PS3.

 

The hard drive is screwed into the bracket and than the bracket slides into place where its secured with a screw

 

you might find a larger cheaper hard dirve somewhere else

 

 

just youtube replace hard drive on PS3 slim and you will see many videos showing how easy it is
