can a 500GB HDD hold up to 3750 games?

15 replies 3241 views Edited Jun 30, 2013

I have a 320GB slim, which i only have like 35 games on it and my HDD is now have less than 70GB on it. I was looking for a super slim ps3 on amazon, and their decription says.

 

  • Bundle also includes a Garnet Red DualShock 3 controller and Limited Edition Garnet Red PlayStation®3 system featuring a massive 500GB hard drive which holds up to 3750 games, 297 movies, 198,437 songs, and 80,000 photos.

I find it hard to believe a 500GB can hold up to 3750 games. Im not even sure if it can hold up to that many demos, let along full games.

I say that is hard to believe. It would be small files of games to be able to hold that many, even at that you still would not be able to hold that amount of movies and songs.

 

 

Calculations based on 256GB available HDD space and 1.3GB average for SD movies, 100MB average for PSN games, 5MB average for photos and 3.5MB average for songs.

Perhaps Indie games or ps1/2 games.

Not even possible. 

 

I had a 500GB once, and it held around only like 150 or so full retails.

I think thats or, not and. There is no way it holds all of that. I dont even belive it holds that many games.

RE-THINK SALAD

I dont know what indie games are or how much memory they take, but even PS1 and PS2 games are 700MB to 1GB and some like FF7/8 are over 1GB. So i dont know where amazon got their 3750 games from.

The movies and photos seem reasonable, and I guess the music too if it's low quality stuff. But at around 95 mb for a game I have to doubt that.

 

Edit: OP, these aren't approximations of how much of anything it can hold.

Those numbers are probably based on the smallest possible size for games

Understand this, it will hold 500GB

 

3750? Yes that is possible, but not for the games you're thinking of.  Some games are 4GB and 15, 20 or more. 
If the games had half of a GB that would come out to over 1800GB. You can use up 500GB with less than 100 games, it come down to the size of the game. Also the system will use up some memory, and game updates as well as apps (small size) and game data.

Who da hell will fill it up with 3,000 games anyway? How much is even on the PS Store?

And if the games where $1 then that is $3000

If you are just talking about 3750 games. 500gb= 512000mb. 512000mb divided by 3750 = 137mb. So if you are talking about PS1  games and mini games that are less than 137mb each, then techically "Yes". But there are only 251 "mini" games and 178 PS1 games in the Playstation Store. I don't think there are 3750 games of any kind in the Playstation Store, so NO, you can not put 3750 games in a 500GB HDD.
