73GB of free space is not enough for an 8GB game

Hi everyone, I've been having a lot of problems with my 262GB ps3 lately after the 4.55 update, I'm not blaming the update of course but after that time I could download large videogames 7,8,4,5GB games and everything was fine, but after I've downloaded Bioshock Infinite full game using my PS+ membership I can't download any 4GB+ games anymore and I even erased the Bioshock game but that didn't resolved anything, I tried to copy a 10GB movie into my PS3 and it worked so I don't know what's the problem I tried to do the reset procedements 3 and 4 and nothing worked,and I know you need the double space for a game to be installed 8GB -> 16GB.

 

I've received answers like to try to update my HDD and yeah but like someone said that doesn't really answer my question cause I have 73GB free and I can't Install any games from the PSN but I can move and play 10GB movies.

 

Anyone? Ideas?

Weird, I downloaded Far Cry 3 and needed 10GB since it was 5GB and had no problems doing so. I have a 220GB hard drive and been able to download games that are huge without problems prior to the latest update. Maybe contact Sony.

You can either delete content in order to make room or upgrade your HDD. Since you can get a 1 TB sata notebook HDD for your PS3 (or PS4), you might want to consider that option.

haha sure, well I don't have that problem anymore it was a network connection, weird cause you don't expect that a HDD problem has something to do with your internet connection
