New 160 gb ps3

10 posts in this topic

I am going to buy a new ps3, is the new 160 gig, worth the extra $100, compared to the 80 gig?

It mostly depends what you are going to be using it for. If it’s strictly a gaming machine, that is way overkill.

The advent of large hard drives is a direct result of “modders” copying the entire game onto the hard drive and having a complete library of games right on the hard drive, which by the way Is technically legal, but only if you own the game wink.

I’m not sure how the PS3 is handling their network services or what they are offering, but Microsoft has a large number of movies, TV shows, and even full length games to download, so if you plan on doing that then it might be worth it.

I don’t even know the size of my HDD in my 360, but I know I’ve barely used any of the space and not only that, but it will interface with my home network, so I don’t really need to store picture or videos on it.

What I’m trying to say is that HDD size for gaming is kind of overrated. IMO

I forgot to mention, it is $100 more, but also comes with a game.

Well you probably won't use the extra space anyway. Plus what a ripoff. An 80GB laptop 2.5" HD will cost you $50. You can get the same in 160GB for $60. There's no reason for them to charge that much. The business end is they probably have a stockpile of 80GB drives they need to move, because memory (in most medias) these days is practically free.

The only reason i got a 80gb is because i wanted to be able to do play backs on it. At first i didn't think i would use it for anything decides gaming but i'm glad i have the 80gb now. But Vahn is right!!!

Not unless you get an older PS3 all the Newer ones produced now are NOT BACKWARDS COMPATABLE from my understanding.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
