Updating my ps3
Something like the digital version of Uncharted 3 will eat up a huge chunk of an older PS3's HDD.
It's very easy to upgrade the hard drive yourself though.
Alternatively, to just save all your save games go to the game header in the main menu, select save data utility and then copy multiple to save your games to USB.To start, I'll first just admit that I have always been an XBOX 360 fan boy. Now, some might think that was a stupid choice, with good reason.I have done my fair share of ridiculing the PS3, and even deterred people from buying one. However, because I was an XBOX fan, I was very familiar with the Red Rings of Death, or RROD for short.The hard drive we're using here is a basic 5400rpm 500GB model.Unlike the PS4, the PS3 lets you back-up all your saved games to a USB stick in one go, or even back-up almost all of your data (anything that DRM does not bar) before throwing out the old HDD.
In practical terms this means you can buy most 2.5-inch 500GB or 1TB slimline hard drives without any major issues.
