    ps3 Team Xecuter's Hard Drive Xtender replaces PS3 HDD with your own

    via engadget



    Rest assured, those looking for a clean solution to add hard drive space to their PlayStation 3 had mixed emotions when pondering the Hyperdrive. Thankfully, Team Xecuter has unveiled a much sleeker (and flexible) alternative with the Hard Drive Xtender; the device actually replaces the internal PS3 hard drive and provides a plug to run externally, where you can then attach your favorite SATA or IDE drive (with optional adapter). Obviously, the biggest boon in this setup is the money you'll save from not having to spend a small fortune on a dense 2.5-inch SATA drive, and considering that the Hyperdrive can reportedly be used in conjunction, the limits of PS3 capacity are now slightly closer to endless. Hackers rejoice, it's yours for a meager 12.99 ($26)

    Just the port that the hard drive is located in,sony did make the hard drive easily replaceable(just expensive for those damn small harddrives)

    It's interesting, but I wouldn't like to have my hard drive hanging off the back of the PS3...

    Looks like it doesn't provide a connector for the power cord. This is a good idea, but it would have been better to make both essential ports available. What they really should make is an external hdd chassis that looks good alongside the ps3, as well as a black hdd bay cover that extends the ports to the outside of the console. In other words, they could make this much better.
