I have the 120GB and after 2 years I filled it so every time I install a new game I have to delete the game data from an older game, which is a huge pain. I would suggest going with the 250GB so you can have demos, videos, game saves, and not have to worry about deleting or cleaning up old data whenever you buy or rent a new game.

I too also have the 120gb launch Slim model, never thought i'd ever fill it up but I did, also always have to delete things, so yeah 250gb, would probably work for most gamers, the 500gb seems a bit excessive unless you are planning on downloading lots of movies, music, demos, or plan on buying tons of games!

i'd say buy the 160GB PS3 and then buy a 1TB SATA 2.5 internal PC hard drive and put it in the PS3 if you wanted, for around $90 - $100 at if you want more hard drive space for your buck.

How so?

1TB is not overdoing it, especially if you are a Playstation Plus member, download all your games digitally, or have over 200 games, most of which require you to install over 5GB just to play.

Do yourself a favor, get the 160, and go buy a 1TB hard drive. Unless you plan on playing Call of Duty for an entire year, or Skyrim, you don't need more, but it never hurts to have more.

really? people buy/build gaming PCs with 1 or 2TB hard drives, 12 or 32GB of ram, 4 or 5GHZ processors and dual Nvidia GTX 680 GPUs all the time. how would 1TB on the PS3 be overdoing it?
