I know the timing is weird since PSN is down and I can't really purchase any new content, but I finally got around to upgrading my launch Playstation 3 to 500 gigs. The entire process took 6 1/2 hours, but I was only physically involved for about a half an hour. The other 6 hours was the time it took the PS3 to backup and restore to and from an external hard drive. The two biggest challenges wer figuring out how to format the backup external drive so that the Playstation 3 would recognize it (FAT32), and removing the evil blue screw that was tight and easily stripped.
