Could they be taken off the shout feed? Everyone gets a welcome post in forum. Seems redundant to do it here, plus it clutters up the shout box :(

Thanks, I got your text.I think I will just wait until I can swing the bigger HDD though.With getting PS+ now and the install of games, I have a feeling it will be better to just make the big investment now.

Yes, it goes like this.

If you think you are going to want to play a game, put it in and install it.Then go back to watching TV.Once "Dances with Wolves" is over, your game should be 98% installed and just about ready to play.:2thumbs

Stupid cell processors.MGS4 is the worst for this.Install that game a day in advance of when you want to play it.

I almost always set it up to dl games right before I leave.If you do it that way and set it to turn off after the dl it'll pull the game down then install it before turning off.Then whenever I get back its ready to go.

A little advice. rom what I have heard (Have not researched all drives), but 500GB SATA "Should" be safe all around. With the 1TB drives, there are only a few modles that work due to the required thickness of the drive to fit all the plates inside. The drive itself can be too thick to fit inside the bay of the PS3. The one I got fits fine and has been running fine for over a year. I got it on sale at Best Buy for $70. It has been a requirement with PS+. I'm at less than 300GB free now. This is after a purge of unused data.

OK, I finally upgraded my HDD on my PS3.It was super easy, but I did have another step not mentioned on the Sony site with getting an update installed on my system before it would boot up.I put all the instructions in the original post and stickied this thread.Hope it helps anyone thinking of doing this.

I'm gonna do it soon. I keep on running out of space. and with downloading BF3 and it taking up 14gb of space, I need the room. I'm getting a 1TB drive off newegg with my next paycheck.
