PS3 has a smaller amount of memory, so it constantly moves older stuff out of memory to save space. As a result, hard drives need to work more to load textures/data into memory again. We all know a hard drive (or optical drive) can become a bottleneck in these situations.

I actually bought my fatty 60gb ps3 in january 06 when it was over $600 so my personal console investment has been substantial. Of course my sig rig cost waaaay more than i have ever spent on consoles but my computer is an order of magnitude more powerful than any console is ever likely to be....

I'm sorry but Xboxs are more expensive because the incredible games make me run the Walmart/Gamestop thus using more gas so:

60 Xbox games(20 limited editions which are $70) * 60 trips to the store * 60 miles both ways(my car gets one mile per gallon) * $3.50/gallon =

Total: $16,400

Xbox cost way more, you can built a dual SRX with that amount of money for gaming.

LANs were bigger in the early 2000s. He is probably too young to have attended one. I remember people used to LAN more playing Counter-Strike, Diablo, Starcraft, etc.

Younger gamers missed out a lot.

Not sure if serious.

Not everyone pays for $70 collectors editions, or have to drive 120 miles to pick up a game, or buys only one game per trip, or buys only new games, or gets one mile per gallon. Seriously, one mile per gallon?

Are you kidding? Do you really think that the average gamer has multiple friends that want to bring their PCs over to their house to connect to someone's LAN? EVERYONE can come over and play a multiplayer game on the console, but not everyone is going to haul their PCs to a central location to play over LAN.

LAN gaming is awesome, don't get me wrong, but you're delusional if you think that is easier than multiple people using a single console.

I can see where this thread is headed, I'm bailing out now before it gets to ugly. I'm tired of being one of the only PC gamers on this forum that understands and enjoys console gaming as well.

Wow, chill, guys...
You're going way off the topic.
Now back to my question, what would be a good ssd for ps3 in term of price, reliability and speed? Nothing overkill, but not to be under-powered. biggrin.gif

I'm assuming that a good SSD is a good SSD, wherever you stick it.

If that's the case, you can't beat this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148524

I thought I was being obviously ridiculous. tongue.gif

Anyway, multiplayer occurs far more on consoles than PC. Just look at the evolution of console hardware which evolved around multiplayer and made it a lot easier.

Which is easier for your friend to bring: A 30lb tower, peripherals, monitors, etc or a simple controller to plug into his N64.
