Drive modding: the Xecuter PS3 Hyperdrive

The Xecuter PS3 Hyperdrive rocks!

Man, the folks at Team Xecuter are quick. Not content with offering great mods to the Xbox 360 community, they’ve set their sights on making something for Sony‘s new flagship console. Of course, if you know Team Xecuter, then you know it’s got something to do with connecting more stuff to your PS3.

Their new product is currently codenamed the Hyperdrive, allowing users to connect 3.5″ SATA hard drives to their PS3. While they haven’t tested the upper limits of their new project, they have confirmed the connection of a 750 GB hard drive onto their console, which should definitely bring in a lot of options once a full-fledged PS3 homebrew and modding scene develops (if people can only find more units, that is). While working on the Hyperdrive, however, the team is also planning to send out an adapter for people to connect with, so that those who really want to get into the spirit of things can do so without any extra waiting.

Here’s the pertinent feature information from their announcement. Feel free to send them some love on their forums, alright?

  • Connect any 3.5″ SATA Hard Drive to the PS3
  • Developing ability to connect IDE hard drive
  • Supports up to 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.
