Phat PS3 Hard Drive in Slim Line?


Are Phat PS3 hard drives compatible with the new 2012 slim-lime PS3s with the sliding disk tray?

  1. They all use a 2.5 inch sata 5400 rpm hard drive , but if you’re thinking about popping in the hdd from one ps3 into another and getting all of your data it won’t work. When you install another hard drive it gets formatted so the console can use it , the console will always need to format and add encryption to a new hard drive , once formatted only the same console can read the data. If it’s not a larger hdd or you aren’t replacing a broken one for a working one there is no reason to install the hdd from an old ps3 into a new one.
