80 gb PS3 Storage space used up

#1WiiBrawlerPosted 4/14/2013 8:38:13 PM
I can't seem to find why my space is used up other than a 20gb of downloaded games. The save files all seem to be like 10-15 gb total and it is annoying because I don't want to have to delete my games to download ones I bought any help would be appreciated

80GB total space on the HDD?

That means roughly 60 for actual consumer use.

Game data alone (Read - NOT save data) can eat that up in moments. Let alone downloaded games.

Delete game data you don't want. Backup and delete saves you don't need.

Get a bigger HDD, because nobody is dumb enough to leave the standard HDDs in their PS3s.

Ok I have deleted all my old saves and only have saves of games I currently own and I really don't want to spend so much on a new HDD when I am probably going to buy a PS4 at launch but is there a way I could like copy my games to a flashdrive or pc or like burn them to DVD's so I only use their storage when I want to play them?

Unless you have an external hard drive to create a full system back up, then no. You can't copy game data by any means other than that.

sorry it was 57.2 gb and I know the other 20 gb is system stuff but is there a way to like download stuff straight to a USB or Hardrive then just plug that in when I want to use the data or play the game?

Could I do this with my Laptop then copy it to a USB then plug that in when I play the game that requires the specific game data?
