Okay, Now The Huge PS3 Install Sizes Are Bugging Me

Earlier in the generation, this wasn't a big problem. But it seems like every new game requires more hard drive space on the PS3, and it's getting a little annoying.

Not every game and it doesn't bother me. My 120gb is fine and I have psn games and 30gb of music on it

I have a it will begin to bother me eventually. I could just delete stuff to make room..but then I have to take the time to reinstall a game every time I want to replay it.

I manage my PS3's HDD space like I do any device with internal storage. It's a non issue.

You could spend less than the cost of a game and upgrade your HDD to a 250+gb.

It's not that big of a deal... Just get a larger HDD or uninstall a game you are already finished with.

PC gamers install/download most of their games and it is not a problem, and in fact it actually makes games play better since they do not need to read a disc.

We generally have thousands of gigabytes to throw around though.

I have 1TB :D. I'm half way through it i think.

LOL he mentions the 360's discs. 360 fans can install the entire game or not any of it at all. This is even less of a deal than the mandatory installs. Why is this such a big deal for some PS3 fans? Can't you retrieve owned data/content if you decide to delete to make room?


I own a 250gig 360 and own a mix of arcade games and Xbox 1 games and do not keep them on the hard drive. I own the rights to these games so I leave them on MSFT's servers. The only thing on my HDD are the games I'm actually playing.

People only call out the marines when Sony does the same thing that other systems do.

Yeh, get a new HDD and problem solved. I have a launch 60GB console and that just isnt enough with all the game data and game downloads we get today, so I upgraded the HDD to 200GB and now all is good =)
