Thats the one thing I love about the PS3 (and hate about the 360)
they where just worried that people did a original xbox and soft modded it easily i know you can mod a xbox 360 but not as easy as taking the drive out and using a simple program

i am surprised we dont here much about PS3 piracy i thought it would be easy to pirate i assume its all down to disk size tho! blu ray imagine trying to store a few of them on a HDD

the original PS2 had a hard drive bay which was cool and a lot of people hacked it easy too but it wasnt as common as the xbox one since that has a drive from the start

but the 360 is easy to hack really easy, personally i think its easier than the original xbox.

i think its just a way for M$ to make extra money, why let you choose what you want when they can control what it is and how much it cost?

EDIT: heres the post i just deleted

Its a 2.5 drive? Was the original a 2.5 or a 3.5? Also does it say the RPM?
Original was 2.5, but some companies made 9.5mm drives (depth) and 12.5mm thickness drives

It doesn't say the RPM but im pretty sure its 5400RPM.

here is a pic of a standard 9.5mm and a 12.5mm

The original was a 2.5 as well as this one, the question asked was about the new WD 1tb drives which at 12.5mm tall.

True, I remember popping a 250GB HDD in my original XBOX with EvolutionX installed :rockout:

PS3 games have been pirated already, well ripped from the BD and the image uploaded to certain sites (all 25-50GB of data...or should I say 7GB or so of actual game data and the rest is fake data to pad the disc out!). But even if you can burn the image back to a blank BD, you wont be able to run it on the console anyway.....Sony must have done their homework when it came to the security on the PS3 ;)

In mine it's a Toshiba and it's 2.5in 5400RPM with 8MB cache. And they cost around $60. I did have the model number but lost it if i remember tomorrow i'll post it lol..

To me they get hot still and hate to think how hot the older version gets. Thinking of getting a laptop cooler for it when i can has it's like 27c+ here so it has a reason to get hot :).
