Devil May Cry
Need for Speed: The Run
Devil may cry looks disappointing,need for speed the run looks interesting.
I've never had to purchase a particular HDD for the PS3. I've just always used whatever I had at hand.
To back up your current PS3 HDD you will need an external USB HDD. You then pop the new HDD in, format it, then transfer everything from the external HDD to your new internal PS3 HDD.
I believe you can comfortably go up to a 1TB HDD with the PS3. I've installed 500GB & 750GB HDDs for friends with no problems arising.
You can only fit a 1TB in the PS3,only if you dismantle the PS3 and manually fit the 1TB in the cage.
Because 1TB are 12mm and not 9.5mm so they don't fit in the PS3 HDD cage,nor does it fit in the gap very well.
Largest you can go without problems is a 500GB for the PS3
I'm pretty sure the 750GB HDD I used was a Western Digital 9.5mm drive. I forgot about the size difference with the 1TB HDDs. I've never attempted to fit one in a PS3
One of these would probably install ok : http://www.shop.bt.com/products/wes...e-2-5--sata-3gb-s-5400rpm-8mb-9-5mm-7LNZ.html
LOL £92 for a 1TB thats 9.5mm?? Not worth it at all you can get an SSD or a new CPU or motherboard for that price.

Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater HD gameplay
nice! any news on an MGS5? i will definitely be getting hd MGS3 though didn't even know it would exist! are they doing sons and MGS1?
Pack comes with MGS2, MGS3 and Peace Walker. In Japan they get a download for MGS1 but i dont think its in HD.
other HD collections are coming soon
Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Zone of Enders, Ico/Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Monster Hunter, Tekken Tag Tournament and probably Devil May Cry.
I am looking forward to Zone of the enders more,i want see some trailers for the HD remake.
Just a silly question can i use my falsh disk as a main hdd for ps3 even hdd is in ps3.its just i got flash disk 256GB and my hdd is only 120GB
Nope you can't sorry,why have you got 256gb memory stick,those are expensive. Surely you could of picked up an external 1TB for same price of a 256gb memory stick or even less money.
that stick was a present so i dont care how many it costs ye than i will get some 1TB sata disk from novatech for 70£.
Ridge Racer Unbounded gameplay
Ridge Racer,boring arcade style racing game in my opinion. i enjoyed the Type 4 though on the Ps1.
Well i hope the new need for speed game has decent gameplay and plot. My favourite still Most Wanted.
