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.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
