Dude, chill. Why even post if you can't say anything good? It's not even that big of a deal bro. I have not been on here in YEARS and when finally return, your post in the warm welcome i get, aye? Also, try reading before posting because:

 

-True, one could simply just redownload later... but what if one does not have the fastest internet and does not want to wait hours?

 

-Your mind works best when you actully use it to read the entire post!

 

-What am i searching for?? I have not been on here in years! So how would i know to even think there was a post like this??

 

-Look at when the thread was started. I just made this thread.

 

-Actully READ my post before assuming i said SDD. I CLEARLY said Seagate Montous XT HDD/SDD hybrid. Seagate does not make consumer SSD's... but of corse you wouldn't know that. Huge diffrence and the HDD/SDD hybrid does have benfits for PS3. Also, PROF because it does exsist... http://www.thegameraccess.com/reviews/tech/accelerate-ps3s-speed-with-seagates-momentus-xt-review

Protip bro: Take your own advice before dishing it.

 

Moving on, back to being on topic. 

 

 

 

 


Um dude, all that extra stuff? That's his signature. Not his post.

Yeah, this is something I am constantly running into on my Vita (8GB Card) and PS3 (320GB). Conversely, it makes me focus more on completing certain games so that I can delete them and move onto others. Overall, I'm definnitely not going to complain that I have too many games to play-- I definitely like having that problem.

At one point, there were so many PS3 games that were free that i wanted, i had to ponny up and buy a 500GB Seagate Momentus XT (yes, the HDD/SSD hybrid that works magic on PS3) . Has anyone else been hit with the PS+ space devowering effect?


Everybody is different but 500gb can be enough (I use a 500gb hdd). I downloaded almost every plus game and beta offered through plus over the past 9 months, and have a whole bunch of game installs due to my gamefly subscription and I still have plenty of space left (around 280gb left). If I deleted the plus games and data install of games I beaten and don't plan on returning back too to can easily free up an additional 50-60gbs.

I was going to come into this Thread and offer my advice, but it seems advice is not wanted.  None the less, I will do so anyway.

 

When the answer that you seek, in in the question that you state..... Come what may?

 

gR had a perfectly good answer, as well as GrayGargoyle.  As long as PSN Supports the title, and you have effectively, and fully downloaded the game at least once, it is capable of being deleted and re downloaded at a later date.  I am not entirely sure what beating the game 100% has to do with it, but I digress.

 

Download speeds aside, it is possible.  If you wish to further complicate the matter, by introducing external drives, then that is your prerogative.  Drives are not my specialty, so I will not comment to that point.

 

The title of the Thread was "The PS+ "space devowering" effect...", and the OP was:

While gR wished to help, his signature was misconstrued as a direct reply to the OP's choice of Drives.  This is just a case of pure coincidence, which is understandably confusing at first glance.  

 

All this being said; this response from the OP, "-True, one could simply just redownload later... but what if one does not have the fastest internet and does not want to wait hours?" remains a situation; of someone asking a question and immediately biting the head off the first responder, because it was not the answer they wanted.

 

Do I have this correct so far?

 

So I will answer the ONLY Question asked in the OP, "Has anyone else been hit with the PS+ space devowering effect?".  

 

Yes, I have.

 

Solution... See

I have this problem as well as the "Not enough time for all the games" problem. Not a bad problem to have I suppose.

I was almost out of space on my 320gb before PS+ but ever since it launched Ive been deleting games to make room for new ones. So I bought a couple  1tb HDDs  from Best Buy 3 weeks ago for my PS3 and for my son's  and I am already down to 368gb...
