    my dad works for nintendo.
    you better get a pre-hacked console...
    otherwise you will either need a kit or someone with a kit to downgrade etc..
    i bought a ps3 last year, buying a pre-modded\hacked saved loads of trouble...

    the hdd is a sata laptop size one...
    i am not sure if there is a max limit you can put inside..
    however you will be using an external one (usb).. since installing the games on the internal hdd is a load of pain...
    my setup is a rescued 32gb hdd from a dead laptop for internal, and a 1gb western digital elements external drive

    Yeah you can play online, its best to use a homebrew app called psn patch to mask this though

    my dad works for nintendo.
    never needed to use psn patch.. maybe cuz i use REBUG CFW?

    anyway @3DSJunkie you can play online but there is a risk of a ban, i don't know much info on this but its common
    anyway, if you get a pre hacked console i recommend you REBUG CFW, since is based on last firmware and it has loads of features

    Ahhh psn patch is just something I got told a few years back and has just become of the habit, you know what it's like, why fix what's not broken and all that
