Yes, but just 64GB? If you are going to upgrade then upgrade.

Yea it'll work just fine, but as the above has said if you don't intend to download any games, movies, music or pictures please get a bigger HDD than 64GB.

Okay, I hate to bandit someone else's post but my question might help the OP. Will I have to format my SSD to fat 32 BEFORE I install it in my PS3? How do I do that? Smiley Frustrated

|No, the PS3 uses its own file format for the internal HDD. Install the HDD and when prompted make sure to have a USB flash drive with the latest PS3 firmware

 

http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/pc_update/index.htm

 

Make sure to save it as directed on the page otherwise the PS3 will not see the firmware file.

 

 

 

|FAT32 format applies only to external storage devices.

I had a 500 GB standard latop HDD in my ps3, can't even begin to think 64 GB will even be enough.. As soon as i got my original PS3, I went for a 500 GB hdd, 60 isn't nearly enough now days. Most games require HDD installs, and firmware updates, and DLC, so yeah 64 GB will be gone in 2 seconds flat.
