60 should be enough, but you'll be close to its full capacity, so i'll go with the 140 in case you want to download demos or more games in that hard drive.

I agree with this post. Remember, all game data is stored on your PS3. That includes, but not limited to, Save data, Fragmentation data, Utility data, Blu-ray data, Demos, PSN content: Wall paper, music, PS1 games, etc., and things of this nature that I have yet to mention (pictures, music, updates, and so on).

When you add the fact that FFXIV will have you download many and many more updates, you will reach capacity probably pretty quick. Unless, I hope, they override most of the previously downloaded data to make way for the new one but add in you DLC and you're maxed. If you're thinking like I am, as a FFXI vet too, you want to make FFXIV your new home. If they make this game as good as we hope, just think of all the stuff you downloaded for FFXI or bought... Yeah, that's a lot of extra HDD space you need. SO, I would go with the 140 if you can handle it. I have a 120 and am almost at max with game data alone.

I'd imagine this poster is really excited to go buy a ps3. If you do choose to make a thread asking a question in this forum, you'll probably need to wait longer than an hour to keep bumping the thread. The forum isn't exactly as busy as it was when the game first launched. Give it 3 or 4 months. I'm sure it'll pick up again once the game relaunches.

Thank you very much for answers. 140 is what im think of too. We should make this sticky thread because its very important for players to know the FFXIV on PS3 caps. I know it wont be till early next year but the more we prepared the more we can play on PS3 =D

Get the cheapest one then upgrade the HDD to a 500 GB or higher for half the cost of what Sony wants

Honestly, I believe that this is what you should do. 

Replacing the hard drive on a PS3 is very easy, and it's even discussed in the PS3 manual! All you need to do is buy a low-capacity PS3 and then buy a nice HDD (maybe 160 GB, 200 GB, etc.) and just slip the new one inside.

Here's a guide on how to do it, step by step, with pictures.


Depending upon where you buy your parts, you can end up getting a PS3 with a very large HDD without necessarily paying Sony's very large price.

Can you still do that? I have a memory that Sony patched away the possibility to replace the hard drive in a PS/3 for more space (?)
I also have a 120GB PS/3 thats filled to the rim and I have had to delete a bunch of games from it,
Feels a bit strange to have to buy a brand new 320GB PS/3 just because the current 120GB one ran out of HD space.
And I would hate to buy a new harddrive and not being able to put it into the PS/3.

SO.... tl;dr Have anyone replaced the HDD in their PS/3 for more space recently ?

Swap it ! :) SSD is falling in price aswell. Imgaine SSD 250GB ffxiv , not only super loading time, but all ur other games etc will run smoother and faster. But its still a pricey jump from normal 5400-7200rpm. But what a speed. I will never ever own a PC without SSD as main system disk.

Yes you still can. If they patched it away, they'd also be getting rid of their option of replacing it when it goes bad and reselling the entire unit. That just wouldn't make any sense business sense. I purchased my fat 60GB back during launch and when I had to have it replaced due to the video card going bad, I went ahead and replaced the HDD on the new on from 60 -> to 500 GB. I'm still trying to fill it up and it's been 2 years now.

EDIT: Also, I forgot to mention that it takes all of about 5 minutes to do and it does not void the warranty. If/when you do need to replace the unit or get it repaired, make sure you put the original HDD back into the unit.
