quickest way to wipe harddrive?

4 Replies 155 Views Created 25-02-2010

if youve seen my other thread you will know that my 60gb ps3 shut its self off whilst playing heavy rain, its still working but im gonna trade it in while i still can, i need to wipe the harddrive before i do so, but i want to do it as fast as possible as i dont want it to stop turning on all together.

 

how long does the 'format ps3' option take to complete?
