Xecuter PS3 Hyperdrive
Posted by XanTium | 1-12-2006 12:54 EST

From team-xecuter.com:

We've been playing with a PS3. Didn't take long to come up with a useful product - codenamed the HYPERDRIVE.

* Connect any 3.5" SATA Hard Drive to the PS3
* Developing ability to connect IDE hard drive
* Supports upto 750GB (maybe more thats all we have here)
* Switch between external HYPERDRIVE and internal 2.5" HDD
* HYPERDRIVE USB2.0 Support to dump data to/from HDD

When you connect the system announces the drive requires formatting etc and then promptly begins to prep it. All system settings are unchanged so they are stored internally to the PS3 and not on the HDD.

We can assure you that larger hard drives will be essential in the near future. After speaking to colleagues from the Playstation Scene, booting games from HDD is possible and not far off. As the games are blu-ray (17gb+ dumps available) then the larger HDD the better, and you wont get very large and cheap 2.5" drives, however 250GB 3.5" drives are close to $60 these days.

We may release a simple adapter first so you can hook up with ease right now rather than wait for release of the HYPERDRIVE, that won't take too long at all to release.

Product pics / more info soon.

Here's some crappy pics showing our first attempts at 3.5" hook ups. Drive in this pics was 150GB - note how much OS space is taken up !!

That last part worried me, being able to run back ups from the HDD?

If this becomes so then expect Sony to run a barrage of patches....

Whoa blink.gif

I didn't notice the playing games from the hard drive is "possible, and not far off" part.

That was really fast...I wonder what Sony will do to counteract all this.

PS3 hacked so soon? And possibly modchipless?
I don't know if this is a good sign or bad sign as in the longevity of the PS3 if it's hacked easily..

Remember the Dreamcast? blink.gif

No disrespect to Team Xecuter but I'll believe the reading dumps when I see it. I've heard a lot about stuff going on behind the scenes that people vouch for as real, but we don't ever see it materialize.

The hacked 360 hard drive maybe? Never saw it come to light after 3 days of speculation. I'm not saying it wasn't real, but nobody ever gave us anything to make us believe it. I do think there's a market for this product sure, especially getting away from the 2.5" drives, but I'm not sure we'll see Blu-Ray loaders anytime soon.
