Expand memory on 12Gb PS3?

[ Edited ]

My kids 12Gb PS3 has already run out of storage space and I wondered if something like a 32Gb USB memory stick would work if I plugged one in and if any existing game data would be transferable rather than delete it?

Can't be done i'm afraid. The only thing you can do is put a HDD in the console.

 

HDD Upgrade

How do you do that? I Have one of those really fat ps3's, If I take out the hard drive from the fat one onto my super slim 12gb will it work?

Yeah, it'll work, but it'll be formated first.
