So what is the real harddrive limit for the ps3?

28 replies 248 views Edited Sep 12, 2008
I keep hearing in various places by various people that the ps3 can only take 250 gigs. is this true? a lot of internet people say otherwise. and also while im typing, i dont have to have any special webcam for the ps3 do i? is the ps3 eye the only cam that works? i heard that its more like a plug and play type deal with the ps3 so i can use my spare webcam. is this true?

As far as hard drives go...right now 320Gb is the max I've heard of being

installed in a PS3. If and when 500Gb 2.5" SATA HD's are manufactured

(if they're not already) that will be the max until something bigger comes

out. Who knows...eventually we might be able to have a 1 TERABYTE HD

for the PS3!

 

Regarding the webcams...the PSEye is the only camera that is compatible

with the PS3.

 

The sig says it all.

The only requirement is that the HDD be a 2.5" Serial ATA HDD ( I think there was also a maximum height of about 9.25"-9.5", or something close to that ).  And, I've heard of 320 HDDs in a PS3.  So, 250 is DEFINITELY not the limit.
