    Keeps giving me the storage system is corrupted and needs to fix it. But it doesn't, just does it over and over again. Anyone?

    HD is probably bad. Easy fix. Just get another. They're user replaceable. Just Google replacing PS3 hard drive.

    Droog knows his shit! Swap that HD out! The PS3 uses a 2.5" hard drive, similar to what laptops use. Throw an SSD in there and watch the PS3 fly!! :cool:

    I have one, but I love a few games that are on PS3 only. Red Dead Redemption...

    Come on bro... all it takes is a small screw driver and a visit to Newegg.com or Amazon.com to buy the drive. Put the brews down and get to work! :D

    You buy a new hard drive for it and grab the firmware off sony website. The website has what ya need. If you have ps plus you are golden with your saves if not you are SoL

    Yep. With the prices of SSDs being as low as they are, it's worth doing. Especially if you have a lot invested in PS3 games you still use. Now that you mention it, I think I'll upgrade mine to SSD. I'm not buying a PS4 anytime soon and I'm still working with the original from 2007.

    I just watch mp4 TV shows from torrents on mine, but there's a million nerds on YouTube that can tell you what to do.

    Buy a new 2.5' hd and if you know how, you can jailbreak it with custom firmware and "unlock" the PS3
