Finally someone actually acknowledged this error . I have this error for like 2 months now. I've got over 80gb of useless free space because of this error.

I'm guessing this is an error due to HDD errors.

No error here, no error with my brother's PS4.

Likely an HDD issue, not a big deal, u shouldn't be maxing out your HDD anyway. It's happening to some ppl with 20-30gb left generally, just prioritize and delete things u don't need.

With PS3 u needed twice the space of what u were trying to DL in order to DL it. Maybe it has to do with that?

Same here no issues at all with the PS4 its been almost flawless for watching Netflix and BluRays.

IamTylerDurden11218d ago


and playing Galak-Z, Bloodborne, Driveclub, Helldivers, MLB The Show, Rapture, Until Dawn, GoW 3 Re, Journey, Axiom Verge, Planetside 2, 3rd parties in 1080p...

I'm glad u haven't had issues, Rocket League is so fun, right?

@FallenAngel Ps2 and Ps1 classics? I'm sorry...I didn't buy a NEW console for old games. I have my ps1 and ps2 still, and never play them anymore. That is why backwards compatibility is a cop out just to get more sales. I want the new games. Luckily I haven't come across this error too.

I had the same issue when i try to download patches. I was trying to download W3's 7 gb patch and I had to delete many gameplay vids. Still had the same issue then I proceeded to delete save files and some indie games. And alas it worked. And I'm affraid it will happen again and again.

Nothing console breaking but damn. It's so annoying. When will Sony stop fapping on sales and fix this and some other minor problems with PS4?

No bueno

DrumBeat1220d ago

I have to agree.

Sony needs a swift kick in the ass, I'm thinking. Do not rest on your laurels, Sony.

Could it be that the PS4 holds some HD space back for unpacking or something like that?

MrMike891220d ago

I thought it might be something like this, but from what I have found online, this isn't the case. Also, i cant see there being 50gb of unpacking space in some cases.

deadpoolio3161220d ago

Well considering to download or install anything you need to have TWICE the available HDD space, so yeah it does have to unpack files

Caffo011217d ago

It was like that on ps3, on ps4 it doesn't need twice the hdd space to download our install a game.

Christopher1219d ago

It doesn't hold space back like they used to. As the article states, some people have 80GB of space and encounter this.
