Playstation 3 drive adds 11+ times the storage

698GB Playstation 3 drive

Though the stock Playstation 3s may have more than enough hard drive space for the average gamer, a Japanese company is selling an expansion that multiplies capacity by at least 11 times. An external drive by Century can hold two 750GB units in a RAID configuration, even though a PS3 will only register 698GB. This is still more than 11 times the storage of the top-end 60GB PS3 however, and almost 35 times the storage of the 20GB console. This may prove very useful to some PS3 owners, since the system is capable of storing music, photos and videos downloaded from the Playstation Store, or copied to the console via means like a CompactFlash card. A special SATA cable ($17) is needed to connect the Century product to a PS3; no price for the drive itself has been listed online. [Via Newlaunches]
