    Is there a way to do this?
    I have a game I want, I've already downloaded it.
    Is it possible to run it off of an External Hard Drive?

    Thanks in advance for help.

    You need to hack your console.

    Prerequisites for playing games from HDD is a PS3 console that is on 3.55 firmware.

    If you have a 3K Slim/4K SuperSlim console, forget about it and you'll need an Optical Drive Emulator
