3100 Views 19 Posts Locked Playstation 3 Hardware
Ok so Im selling my 60GB PS3, and the auction ends in less than an hour. Im looking to drop it off/ship it Tuesday, and wanna clear my data {game saves, internet sites, themes etc.} from it before I give it to the new owners.

Noob Question: How do I delete everything on it so its like new???

Cheers in advance peeps!
you would format the hdd and reset factory settings

I am pretty sure there is a 'restore factory settings' option on the ps3. That would be your best bet.
So its System Settings -> ???????

Edit: Ok Ill see if that works chrisco
Link to auction?
Go to Restore PS3 System under System Settings. It will delete everything.

I want it. If I was to win bid can we work out a Payment thing. Like $250 one week than etc etc?

Lucky guess... maybe? I'll soon know.
Done and done.

Thanks fellow adeladian {zyxses}
Giving vyma another plug there as well I see
PM'd Matt about PS3 buisness.
go to system settings, and FORMAT the hard drive.

restoring factory settings only put the system in default mode, all the data stays.

PS. cheers for the plug
lol vyma about a day too late.

Anyway cant remember which one I chose. One took approximately 3 hours, the other 7 seconds.......I chose the latter. Seemed to do its job. Deleted all the users and replaced them with 'User 1.' No more saved data, no more internet searches, no more psn accounts
Down B select.. Fixes everything
lol. B?
