Will PS3 Fat 80gb hard drive fit in the Super Slim?

4 Replies 9,203 Views Created 21-09-2012
I was thinking of getting a new ps3 super slim since the old fat 80 gig one broke, so could you replace the 12gig harddrive on the super slim with the 80gig hard drive I have now?

Not sure where you got 12gb from, the article i read yesterday stated 250gb and 500gb variants, not 12gb (didn't think they made drives that small these days).

 

You'll find that the hard disk will probably fit physically, but you'll have to reformat it (as you would with any ps3) as hdds aren't transferrable with the ps3 (the drive is encrypted using the console's serial number, among other things).

Short: Yes.

Long: You need a separate mounting bracket, I do not know if it's included in the box (if it isn't, it will cost you). Also, the 12Gb storage is disabled after installing another HDD.

Available from 28th September 2012, the new PS3 system comes with a whopping 500GB of storage and will be closely followed by a wallet-friendly 12GB version. The 500GB will launch as a bundle with FIFA 13for around €299.99, with the 12GB priced around €229.99 standalone, and owners of the 12GB model will be able to connect a 2.5 inch SATA internal hard drive with use of an official Mounting Bracket, or opt for purchase of an official PlayStation 250GB internal HDD. So whether you’re after instant access to memorable, fun-packed evenings with the family, or want to load up your system with tons of fantastic entertainment, we’ve got the right PS3 for you.

12gb flash memory
250gb & 500gb hdd
I got the 500gb and had a hard drive failure 2 month after and again now it happens when I try installing gran turismo 5 academy edition to save money it's best buying 12gb model and put a hdd in it yourself cause in the long run the hitachi hdd shipped with them are not reliable
