    ok, if i was to purchase a game from the PS store and downloaded it, then it will go to the hd right?, well what if at some time i wanted to free up the hd space? can i not put the downloaded game onto a usb pendrive? that would save hd space.

    You can re-download the games whenever you want.
    Once you purchase it you can download it infinite times using that account.
    You can't put them onto external memory.

    i suggest you read up on this:

    I don't recommend installing a new hard drive if you haven't installed anything inside a computer before.

    Oh that's good, then this should be a simple process for you.
    Just backup your things and I believe you're ready to go.

    excellent, i don't have the new drive yet, shopping around at the moment, the PS3 i bought is the big one and only 60gb hd, i want at least 320gb, just out of curiosity, how big a hard drive can i go with the PS3?

    as far as i've read, with a bit of doctoring the ps3 will accept a 1tb drive, that is the largest i have heard of being put in a ps3

    ok, thanks for reply clarky, i don't think i need to go that high. then i can make this 60gb into an external with buying an enclosure for it.
