12gb PS3 slim Question

4 replies 820 views Edited Oct 8, 2012

Hi guys.

 

I got a ylod ps3 fat (repaired 5 times), and I am looking at getting a new 12gb PS3 slim. But I cannot find a clear answer as to my 320gb hdd fitting into a new slim PS3...

 

Anyone know about this? Also, what is the firmware included on the new 12gb PS3 slim?

 

Thanks

it will fit fine...... you will need to buy the hdd cage as it comes separate

 

you need to update to the most current firmware to ensure system stability

You do realize that the 12GB version is only sold in Europe right now?

You have to buy a metal HDD caddy specific to the superslim for it to work. I believe Sony is going to sell the caddy separately, as well as bundle it with a HDD drive.

I have no idea what firmware these PS3s ship with, I think it is v4.20...
