i'd be very surprised if PS3s support TRIM.
That's not true. For writes, the performance of a SSD without trim may fall and approach that of a HDD, but for reads, the SSD will still slaughter a HDD any day of the week. And, what we are talking about here is the reading of PS3 games from a SSD. Regardless, with or without trim, the limiting speed bottleneck when writing a game to the SSD will undoubtably be either the Blu-Ray drive when reading the disc or the internet connection.
They will definiately, in this case, not be slower than any hard disk.
