On environmental grounds, I couldn’t be happier about the move to digital – but it means local storage needs are growing rapidly.

A new drive will set you back around $60, plus another $20 for the mounting plate required in the new Super Slim model – you may as well as just buy it complete with drive from the start.

If you own an older PS3, such as the original 40gb or 80 GB “fat” models, you’ll certainly be looking to upgrade.

Upgrading your PS3 drive will not void the warranty.

I recently bought a new PS3 Super Slim – the latest model – but it only came with a measly 12 GB flash storage.Software updates can include, improvements, new settings or revisions, as well as security patches.It’s recommended that you download the latest version of the PS3 operating software system.Despite all the controversy surrounding DRM, digital game downloads have finally arrived too – nowadays, you can download premium AAA titles on launch day without having to wait for a piece of plastic to arrive in the mail.And if you’re a Play Station Plus subscriber, you have gigabytes of new games literally thrown at you every month. Just make sure to put the Update in a folder like this: USB if you mean firmware updates then you can download them and burn them to cd from the playstation website and then when you go to do a system update choose storage media instead of internet. Thumbdrive/memory stick would be the best if you ask me.
