How do I fix this? PSN Store says I don't have enough space when I know I do

I have 13GB free and the full game trial for Need For Speed The Run is only 9GB. Why can't I download it?

You need double the space, a 9 gig file needs 18 gigs free.

You have to have 9gigs for the install file, and another 9 for the game while it installs. Once all is said and done you will have 9gigs free and the file will be 9 gigs.

That's a serious pain in the ass. I don't have anything else to delete to free up space. Is that for any download no matter what?

Any download no matter what. Its only due to needing the install file, there is no way around it as far as I know.

Yes. Technically, downloading only needs 9gb, but when you go to install it, it doubles the requirement.

best bet is to delete game data. it doesnt erase the save file, and can easily just be installed again later.

are there any games you maybe dont play anymore that you still ahve the data installed?
#8DesertPenguin09(Topic Creator)Posted 3/31/2013 1:38:44 PM
Game data is just stuff like settings right? I don't have that many of those, I don't think they take up that much space either. I don't have another 6 gigs there.

This is completely wrong TC. You only need double space when doing a background download. If you don't do a background download you will be fine. Just do it when you go out or go to sleep or something.
