Yes, you can use a laptop SATA hard drive. There are videos on YouTube on how to do it. Back up your save data and anything else to a portable hard drive, then you can retore it after you have formatted the new drive.

The PS3 should use any laptop (2.5") SATA disk drive. Understand upon replacing the drive you will have to format the disk using the format tool in the settings.

The normal PS3 package does not include any game.
Only with a "special" purchase it will include a game and blu ray disk.

It has a larger hard drive (120 gb or 240 gb). This allows you to store more information on it, making it "better" when compared to the original ps3.

I have been told that the heat output of the slim version is reduced? If this is true it would be an improvement - you could fit it in a more compact location without worrying as much about overheating. That being said, my 'fat' ps3 has never had overheating issues to begin with.

Downsides to slim ps3:

Not backwards compatible with ps2 games. 80 gb 4 usb slot 'fat' ps3 is.

2 usb slots.
some fat models have 4 usb slots.

Yes, start by simply creating a user account on your new ps3.
(this user can be named anything).

when creating the playstation network username to be used with that account, instead of choosing "create new" - simply choose "use existing account".

enter your account information that you have used in the past on modern warfare.

lastly, start up the game, choose online, and when it connects to the infinity ward servers, your previous stats and unlocks will be given to you.

You need to save your profile/game data to a USB flash drive (USB ports on front of counsel) and then copy them into your saved game data folder on your new PS3. I believe COD MW will let you copy saved data. Killzone won't. It depends on the game permissions.

Question

unit will not eject

My son has had his PS3 for less than 30 days, we just set him up with the on line access and now his console will not eject the game that is in it, and he cannot access the ps home to play the game either. We have tried turning the unit off and on, nothing has worked. Called Best Buy they said that is all that they knew to do. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem ? Guy at Geek Squad said it was fairly common. Unit is being returned, but now of course I can't find another one to replace it with. Any other ideas ?

Call your local Best Buy, they may be able to exchange. If they do, make sure to get the Protection Plan they offer. If something like that happens again and you have that plan, they will exchange it with no problems.

Turn the playstation off using the power switch on the back, then press and hold the eject button and then turn on the playstation using the power switch on the back again. The fans should start up really loud and eject the game IF the unit still works I have no idea what it will do but a broken unit will fire off eject the disk and shut back down after ten or twenty seconds.

In store, you would just have to keep trying, if ordered online, even if out of stock, they will send it when the receive it from manufacturer. There really is no specific way of knowing, if your looking for it in store, ask the people that work there when shipments might be coming in.

Not only will you have more room for game saves, but if you buy games, movies or tv shows through the PSN there will be plenty of room for them as well. Some games require a certain amount of Hard Drive space(Devil May Cry and Metal Gear Solid 4 for example), so having that space helps out alot.
