So i have a 40gb PS3 and yet I only have 8 GB free on it....I have no movies, no downloadbale PSN games or content, 3 demos and no music saved on it. Where did all my free space go? Is there an option I am not aware of that I should go into and delete stuff in?

Game installs (even ones that are disc games) take up a lot of space (in gbs for sure) and also, if you have Home, thats 5-7 gbs of space as well.

Yea and like 6 gigs is gone right off the bat from the HDD formatting. YOu should do what I did and buy a 120 gigger on the cheap and throw it in there. Or just delete the installs for games you don't play anymore.

Yeah, my 1.5 TB HDD went down about $50 a month after I bought it.

Actually no, the stock PS3 drives run at 5400rpm.Even so buying a faster drive is possible, but the gains are only about 1-3 seconds.http://www.gamepro.com/article/features/138288/7200rpm-vs-5400rpm-does-ps3-hard-drive-speed-matter/
Based on our tests, the 7200rpm hard drive was ever-so-slightly faster, though only the savviest of PS3 owners will notice the difference...and even then, it's mostly psychological.Where you'll really appreciate a faster hard drive is transferring or downloading full games and other media onto the hard drive. For the faster speed 7200rpm drive, you'll pay around $20 extra across the board. So if you're in the market for a PS3 HDD upgrade, it's worth considering 7200rpm if you plan to frequently transfer gigs upon gigs MP3s and videos. Otherwise, you're better of sticking to a huge-capacity, but slightly slower, 5400rpm drive to save a couple of bucks.

ahhh.... I see. could be worth it if you're already spending money on an HD.to OP, I might be going overboard with this, but did you check your ps3 for any LOLcats?
