It doesn't matter if you have the 40GB, 80GB, 120GB or even the 250GB PlayStation 3 — you can always use more storage space. Read below for a step-by-step guide to backing up your data and upgrading your PS3 "phat", or the video above to upgrade the Slim version.
All that available hard-disk space quickly disappears once you start downloading games, demos, and HD videos. Fortunately, Sony has designed the PS3 to allow console owners to perform their own hard-drive upgrades. You can even go out and select your own hard drive instead of being forced to buy an official first-party hard-disk accessory. However, giving console owners that freedom means that aspiring upgraders will need to know how to select the right hard-drive upgrade and the proper installation technique.
Hard-disk manufacturer Seagate supplied us with a 160GB Momentus 5400.3 for our upgrade.
