PS3 HD Plus PHE-01 eSATA HDD Extender Offers Limitless Storage

298w ago - According to pictures below (courtesy of Gemaga, linked above) this eSATA adapter dubbed the PS3 HD Plus PHE-01 latches to the bottom of any PS3 promising connectivity to an external SATA hard disk for some majorly powerful storage capacity.

Sure, there are other ways (such as [Register or Login to view links] or [Register or Login to view links]) of getting massive amounts of bytes onto the PS3.

One can simply swap in a new internal 2.5" SATA into the system, or even just hook up any old USB hard drive with little hassle; however, the latter won't give the same transfer speed as an eSATA.

From the looks of it, the PHE-01 also comes with an additional four USB ports.

Unfortunately, aside from what can be derived from the pictures there aren't any further details on this product yet... time will tell.

I wanted to update this as I ran across what appears to be a seller for this device on ebay.

With shipping this will run you about $65. It also says it is only compatible with the FAT model PS3 units. Sorry, no love for the slim.

I agree it looks out of place... but it looks like a full enclosure for an external drive.

yep. Also, doesnt look like you can keep the ps3 flat with this ? As people like me e.g. prefer to keep the ps3 flat as thats how it fits best into the entertainment console.

But for a visually aesthetic look with REAL eSATA, I actually like this one.

But with that 3rd photo, I agree it looks out of place...but it looks like a full enclosure for an external drive (hence the power plug and fan).
