About
i love my video game consoles (ps3, xbox360, wii) and any other gadget i can get a hold of. an avid gamer throughout my whole life starting back when i was 5 and playing on the atari. i've owned a system from each of the last 6 game generations (atari2600,sega master system, super nes, psone, xbox, wii/ps3) and a psp phat, ds lite and original gameboy.

so yea, i guess i am an original nintendo gen gamer.

one thing thats pretty sweet about the Playstation3 is that Sony allows us to upgrade the hard drives w/normal laptop sata harddrives.

so, how many of you have upgraded yours and to what sizes?

me, i've upgraded my hdd 3 times.

-started w/the factory 60gb
-upgraded to 160gb
-upgraded to 320gb
-last month, upgraded to a 500gb.


btw, here are the specs of what kind of drive the ps3 takes:

2.5" Laptop HDD
SATA150 or SATA300
5400RPM or 7200RPM (factory drive is a Seagate SATA150, 5400RPM harddrive)
Should be able to handle any capacity (atleast up to 500gb, doubt they make 1tb drives yet)
