*1 Hard disk capacity calculated using base 10 mathematics (1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes). The system software for this PS3 system calculates capacity using binary mathematics (1 GB = 1,073,741,824 bytes) and subsequently displays lower capacity and free space. The difference in displayed values does not indicate a difference in the actual number of bytes. A portion of the hard disk capacity is reserved for use in connection with system administration, maintenance, and additional options. This may occur upon installation of system software or other software. As a result, the availability of hard disk capacity may vary depending on the system, system software version, or available options, and is not otherwise available for your use.
