FAT32/NTFS new diff quickie question...hopefully

weighing out the advantages/disadvantages....based upon my needs...
i have an external hard drive bought solely for use of storing my HD videos and then playing back directly through PS3.
. EHD currently formatted NTFS... realize i must format to FAT32 in order to play directly though PS3.
i don't need more than 4G per file space. i don't need security/privacy features.
it seems logical to format to FAT32....BUT i COULD leave it NTFS and add a step of putting a video back on my camcorder in order to play it directly on PS3.
i will do that IF the benefits of NTFS are BIG ENOUGH.
i understand NTFS allows better/more usage of storage space...is less likely to crash...and is more of an overall efficient system. BUT, i also understand that NTFS formats are NOT meant to be used in removable storage???
So, FAT32 would be EASIER for me when viewing video...but i don't want to use it if there is any considerable risk to the media.
I need help weighing this out...PLEASE!!!
