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.

Well....you haven't heard all LOL. Samsung already has a 500GB HDD that fits in the PS3....he is an article of some guys installing it, and they help you install it to: http://www.gamepro.com/article/features/206951/how-to-supercharge-your-ps3/
Western Digital already countered Samsung with their own 500GB, the Scorpio Blue, will be shipping shortly.
WD said they might have a 1TB out on the market by late 2009 or early 2010.

I think someone did use a 2.5 to 3.5 cable to hook up a 1 TB 3.5" HDD one time ( although it did require him to get an external power source ).
I see no reason why a 2.5 to 3.5 cable shouldnt work aswell. If you just have to have youre 1TB now that would be an option, enclosure or not.
I currently have a WD 320gig in my PS3, its plenty of space for now but as I have began to toss movies on it I may be running out of room soon

I stole my girlfriends crappy creative web cam that I baught her but it made her computer overheat due to the crappy creative software...(man creative makes bad drivers and software nowadays!!), but plugging it into the ps3 via usb it works flawlessly!!! I only use it for burnout paradise though.
Also I have a 320gb hd in mine, only cost me $99, its a samsung , works great! Much faster then the stock 40gb my ps3 came with!
You see Sony built the ps3 for the long hull, the hardware is so superior to anything else out there (well not a pc, but its not in competition with pc, as most people own both ps3 and pc) the fact that you can use most any web cam, get built in wireless, can use any bluetooth headset or usb headset, and any size hd you want without voiding the warrenty is amazing!!! Hell you can even install linux in the machine!! Sony has gone all out with freedom this gen with the ps3, not like micro$haft and its proprietary accessories that cost a fortune. Why anyone would want that piece of crap box is beyond me!
Theres already a 500GB HDD for laptops and the PS3. Its made my Samsung.
Well...there ya go! You learn something new every day.
