PS3 Hard Drive Game Install & Loading HDD vs. SSD Speed Test 550°
315w ago - Recently IGN has conducted a PS3 hard drive speed test. The summary of their experiment is that when used in a PS3, solid state technology produces a very marginal improvement over traditional hard drives.

So for now, just go for a cheap hard disc drive for your system if you want to upgrade it.

To quote: To put it simply; when used in a PlayStation 3, solid-state technology produces only a marginal improvement over traditional hard disc drives. While the results varied greatly by application, the amount of time saved can't quite justify the expense... at least not yet....

Sony considering external PS3 hard drive? 400°
369w ago - SCEE boss David Reeves has hinted that Sony may at some point consider releasing Official external PS3 HDD's.

"We launched with 60GB and to reduce the price we went to 40GB. We're not sure we want to stay with that configuration of hard drive, and I think what you're going to see in the future is maybe consumers can choose.

The PlayStation will stay the same, but consumers can choose whichever size of hard drive they want. They can now, or course, because it's not a proprietary hard drive." said Reeves.

Hot Shots Golf requires a 20 minute 5GB install to PS3 hard drive 100°
382w ago - It looks as if Devil May Cry 4 has a fellow friend in Hot Shots Golf as it too requires a lengthy 5GB install to the PS3's hard drive.

To quote: We don't know if this'll be in the final retail version of the game, but we were annoyed to see that Hot Shots Golf, just like Devil May Cry 4, features a required installation at game launch.

In fact, with about 5GB of data being installed onto the PS3 drive, it's just as lengthy as Capcom's action game. We were surprised by this -- we didn't have our sandwiches ready for the long-haul.
