Slims have a 700GB limit. I bought this exact same hdd last month from newegg and my PS3 slim only saw it as a 700GB hdd before formatting.

BTW, this is a great HDD. Very fast and no issues whatsoever. Quiet too.

Let me guess, it showed up as a 698.49 GB. If so, your PS3 saw all of it. Welcome to the world of two definitions for kilobyte.

i would think you could use Acronis True Image and clone the drive to the new one........no?

No because the PS3 uses it's own file format and a PC cannot see the data on it.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.
