Actually this would fit more under the category of why I think Sony is awesome but I had to say something creative. Something I never realized was that Sony uses standard 2.5″ laptop hard drives. I can buy a 360GB hard drive for $139 for my PS3 while Microsoft wants $149 for their 120GB drive. And swapping out your PS3 drive does not “brick” all the games you have downloaded. Sony even provides you with a backup tool in the system!
What really goes against Microsoft here is that they also use a standard SATA 2.5″ drive but they put it in a proprietary format so that you had to buy their hardware. Why couldn’t they have been a little nicer and let us swap hard drives our own self? I don’t mind the Plastic casing, but at least give me an easy way of swapping drives. Enough of my Microsoft bashing today. I’ll get back to playing games on my 360 I guess.
Have any of you upgraded your PS3 hard drive? If so, let us know how it went and if it is as easy as it seems. Also if you have hacked your 360 with a bigger drive let me know. If you purchased the 120GB 360 hard drive…. I’m sorry but you got ripped off.
