Even for causal gamers I think they would struggle with that

I might be wrong, but I think you'll have to format your HDD on FAT32 if you want to use it with a PS3. I was looking for an external HDD a couple of days ago and I noticed a 1To "PS3-friendly" model (Sony HD-E1 to be precise) that comes with a pre-installed FAT32 formatting program. My guess is that non-Sony products need that formatting, too.
