How many GB's does PlayStation Plus games take up in total at the end of the 12 months?

13 replies 938 views Edited Oct 31, 2012

After the 12 months from all the free games you receive (if you include discounts on games that would be even better and highly appreciated) how many GB's does it all take up moreorless? I'm planning on buying a PlayStation 3 before the end of the year and subscribing to PlayStation Plus as well, so I want to know which PS3 SKU I should get. Please and thank you.

I checked on Amazon and 500GB's are around $50-$60 and externals are around $10.

Also, how many GB's do all the games take up after the 12 months more or less, do you know?

You can't use an external HDD to boot games on PS3

 

A rough estimate would be between 300GB & say 650GB. The higher number might even be a little low.

 

I'd base it on the idea that the games we get through Plus average around 6.5GB. Sometimes the games are much smaller, sometimes they're much bigger. If we get four games every month, that's 48 games in a year. 48x6.5=312GB.

I'm 4 months into my subscription and have exceeded my 149GB, my Hard Drive is full and I've had to delete over 10 gigs of games already.

I'd personally suggest purchasing a 160GB Slim with a 1TB Hard Drive along side it. Once you get your PS3 and the 1TB Hard Drive replace it right away. This will save you a lot of money, and if you want to save more money buy your console Brand New on eBay so you don't have to pay any taxes.

You seriously can't boot games from external HDD? That's very disappointing.

Thanks for the reply.

Aren't most games received for free on PlayStation Plus smaller, download only games? Do you know how many memory does take up and how much memory games like Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One and LittleBigPlanet 2 take up? thanks a lot.
