I don't understand. Maybe some punctuation or an 'and' or something there would help?
Are you saying that if the size of the game (that is already installed) exceeds the amount of free space you have, then even a small patch can't be installed?
If this thread is about installation file issues on consoles, then please make that apparent in the thread title.
Dont look for a reason to ban me thanks, as you can read in the op its about any gripe or annoyance, that was just my major peeve at the time
You mean this?
"Will add more when i feel like it this is just grinding my gears right now"
I thought that might mean "I will add more details about this later. It's just bugging me right now so I wanted to get it off my chest."
Especially since I couldn't understand the issue you were describing, and it was described very briefly.
Your thread title was reported by other people who were also confused, so I had to look into it.
Then just make it clear in that sentence that it's about anything that bugs you gaming wise, to avoid further confusion/reports.
To clarify i have a game of 80gb big, i have 60gb free, i have a patch of 5gb, i need to delete 20-25gb to be able to get the patch
Hmm, first I've heard of that. What I do know is that you need twice the size of the file.
In this case 5GB to download, and then 5GB to install. You'll get back that extra 5GB after the installation is complete, because it erases the downloaded file.
Maybe it's a combination of that and the system keeping some disc space reserved for something like future OS updates?

Because the 20-25GB doesn't really add up to the 80GB size of the game, so I'm not sure how related it is to the game's size.
