318w ago - In case you haven't already ordered this piece of hardware, we bring good news: Western Digital have just launched a 320GB 2.5 inch Scorpio SATA hard drive. This 5400 RPM baby costs only $200 and it will be compatible with the PS3 that supports any SATA hard drive out there. Finally some freedom from Sony who will probably be the last company to ignore homebrewers instead of working with them.
I guess that buying a cheaper PS3 and than this hard drive is a better option than going for a more expensive console. Also, putting Linux on such a hard drive is also a good idea and an option used by many PS3 owners, who have that 10GB storage space required by the OS. So, what could you fit in 320GB? Well, probably enough Metal Gear Solid 4 and Final Fantasy XIII saves to last for a lifetime. Since Sony's new format, the Blu-ray brought some extra storage space to the new age disk, hard drives are forced to evolve as we're heading towards a "downloadable future", which will see the DVD, Blu-Ray and HD-DVD only being used for music and films, while the games are made available through online services.
Till that time comes, we're "training" with hard drives and Western Digital's latest work is not impressive considering that a PS3 games can take up about 30GB of storage space in case Sony decides to make it available...

So please keep that in mind when you are viewing them. In his written update, Rey talks about the look of the characters, UI, and also clarifies the issue of which version of the game SFHD is being based on. More pics linked above!
