I have recently purchased a Seagate Freeagent GoFlex USB3.0(backwards compatible) 2tb(terabyte) (2048 gigabytes ) external drive for the sole purpose of clearing all of my movies, music, pictures, and other documents off my laptop.
My intention is to sell my laptop as it has caused issues in my relationship (due to Internet addiction), but I would still like to be able to watch my movies and listen to my music without having to suffer with low disk space on my 80gb PS3 due to downloading games from the PlayStation Store (especially now that I subscribe to PSN+ for the exclusive offers including freebies and discounts on full games, addons, themes, avatars, and more!).
As far as I know, the only devices with support for NTFS drives are PCs running Windows XP or newer, Linux, and probably Mac too (I've never used a Mac so I don't know). Since the FAT32 file system is so old (Windows 98 & M.E.), and the FAT file system is even older (Windows 3.x & 95), the logical step would be to provide support for NTFS-formatted storage media to get ahead of the game (this could be used as a USP (Unique Selling Point) by the Sony sales department!) as I don't believe the XBox 360 currently has support for NTFS either.
I would also like to request an app for converting previously ripped audio between different formats (i.e. converting MP3s to AAC/AAC+) for improved quality and better compression (smaller file sizes).
Thirdly, I would like to request reverse-DLNA support. Currently, the PlayStation 3 can access Windows Media Player Sharing on Windows PCs, but Windows PCs cannot access content from the PS3.

Years Old topic.
SCE never did any thing years a go. they won't do any thing now about the HDD file systems.
Windows OS is still the only devices that use NTFS. To write to the HDD still requires licensed technology on Leapord or OSX or linux.
Which a fee is required.
It would be READ only with no way to over write or alter the files.
Linux does not use "NTFS", linux uses "Ext" file system buy default.
You have come up with something new.
Living with out a PC/laptop is a style choice.
You will not be a user SCE will realy support they want you to Have a Media PC as the central storage hub and their devices slaved to the Media hub...
If you don't use a PC you are required to Use their Provided content services only and Shop sold media.
