If you have picked up a 12GB Super Slim PS3, and want to add a cheap hard disc to increase storage capacity, you should use one of these to correctly support the drive and not strain the connection.

Yes you can wedge it with a piece of cardboard, but that is far from ideal - the is the correct item to use to ensure the disc is correctly and securely mounted.

Description from the Tesco website:

Compatible with 2.5in hard disk drive
Super slim: convenient to use
This is for the newest PS3 console, which has been nicknamed 'Super Slim'

True there may be some for 50p or so less, shipping from China, with no comeback etc.

This is from Tesco (a Tesco affiliate) so I would be far more comfortable ordering for the sake of 50p.

Thanks, I didn't understand why somebody would need more than one of these.

However, can't a bigger drive suffice generally?

If you have a 12GB model, it has no internal hard drive, only flash memory, so there is no swapping out for more memory. As there is no original drive, Sony did not see fit to provide the bracket anyway. It would only have cost them about 10p to do so ...

However, you can very easily self-install a hard drive, but it need this mounting bracket to securely fit the drive in. The hard drive then takes over from the flash drive.

Generally, a 500GB or 1 TB gives plenty of space for downloaded games, music and videos.

There are plenty of UK sellers for what is essentially a 20p piece of metal. Paypal protection too.....

Thanks
