You delete games that you've finished?

Yes...why would I want to keep it installed when I could reinstall it again when and if needed

Also I could use that space for more games and updates 

I used to do the same until i started going all digital. Now I keep games until I need space. But i have 2TB internal and 4TB external so I’ve yet to run into this issue. 



PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS

A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!

That is a true, unfortunate thing about modern day platforms. If you don’t have a Nintendo Switch, I recommend one based off of the quick pick up and a play nature, as well as the plenty of exclusive title that offers.

Eh , I am pretty much 100% digital on PS4 as far as my purchases have been my going.

I been recording share footage so I try to keep up as much storage as I can lol

Downloading isn’t a issue for me since I have fiber internet with no data cap

Welcome to modern day gaming I guess. This is not a PS4 issue, but a result of more and more games heading towards becoming live services with constant updates.

The best thing to do is add on a larger external hard drive (500 GB is simply not enough nowadays) and abuse rest mode to install updates in the background while you're not playing. If you just play SP games, then you can still play the game while the update is installing in the background.

Agree. It's not a PS4 issue, it's a 21st century gaming issue.

It doesn't bother me too much tho, I don't play many games, so I just need a bunch installed.

I guess one will not just move to Switch just because it's got to wait for install and updates. There are much more to consider when choosing a console.

Switch could be as fast as the Flash and it still doesn't cater to me at all with a few exceptions.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Eh, I dont really mind. its something you take for granted eventually as it happens with every online gaming service.

So basically, people don't necessarily need all that much space, huh? I guess Nintendo was on the right path once again with 32gb storage space in the Switch.

What does this topic have to do with the Switch?

PS4 had a decent of storage space when it first came out. My PS4 I bought back in 2015 has a storage space of 500 gb

i don’t need anything more than that.

if you wanna blame anyone in regards to nintendo’s poor decision making with their hardware, blame Nintendo, not a fellow consumer.

Your biggest problem is sharing a console with someone else. That's not a good way to be and that's also the main reason you're out of HDD space. Other than that, just play game Y while game X is installing, or do something completely different.
People usually have the whole 500GB or more to themselves and I only play one game at a time anyways. Maybe that's part of the problem, too. You have too many games going on simultaneously, and your attention is divided, so you just kind of tune out instead of following through with one story at a time and really getting into it. Instead of experiencing a journey from start to finish, you go in intermittently like "where was I again, what was this about again?".

I have 1Tb to myself and pretty much only play GTS. However I have a bandwidth cap. Deleting old games also deletes all the multi GB updates. If I wat to play them again it will take a long time to get all the updates again. Plus most my PSVR games are digital downloads, deleting them feels like throwing games away :/ I know I can re-download them, but bandwidth cap.

For example, I still have DriveClub on there. I have the disc yet that's so little of the game that it will take hours to download all the updates if I want to do a quick race again.

Wouldn't be worth to you considering price of bandcap to just have another drive to store games you may not play but don't want to delet?
