Like the title says really...


Is there anyway to add more memory to PS3?


I have games that i can't download without deleteing other times in order to download them and it's just a pain in the butt.


I've heard of people downloading games onto 500GB Hard Drive or whatever.


How does that work?


Are the games playable if they are downloaded onto the hard drivers or are they just used for storing game saves?

No. That's ridiculous. The OS wouldn't recognize it if you did, and I'm sure there are more issues. Besides which, games and applications wouldn't be able to use the extra without modifications. 


EDIT: I just noticed you meant storage not memory. Just get a small philips head. You can open up the hard drive slot and swap the hard drive for a bigger one. There is a utility on the PS3 to backup all your data before this process, for that you'll need a portable hard drive with enough space or a hard drive enclosure for the one your upgrading to. Portable hard drives may only store saves, not games.  Just check this: http://vgstrategies....DDDriveSwap.htm

Thanks i'll check it out..


I just want to make sure i understand this correctly before i do this.


When i install the new hard drive i will be able to download games that couldn't be downloaded before because lack of storage space right?
