You find downloaded content on the psn store. Sometimes on your ingame menu it will say if you want to download your DLC. It will ask you for the code to activate it. As for freeing up space on your console, you'll have to delete some content like pictures, demos, saved games that you don't play anymore. I hope that helped you out.

Yes, the Transformers game is around a 9GB download, but installed, along with the DLC, it probably takes 13-15GB of space.

 

inFamous2 is a 15GB download that will eat up about 20GB of space once it is installed.

 

The reason for this is that the downloads are compressed to some degree, and when you install them, they expand to their full size.

 

When you pull up the Information page on a title, it displays the original download size, not the actual installed size.

 

This is one thing that Sony needs to fix soon, with the number of full games going to digital download.  Not only does the title Information page need to be tweaked with the actual installed size, the PS Store needs to report how much space is required to install the game.

Basically whatever the size of the download you need double, if a game is 11GB in size you need ar least 22GB of free space, if the game is 6GB in size you need at least 12GB of free pace, basically double.

Game data files, addons are found at Game/Game Data Utility

 

Games, demos, apps save files at this location. If you have installed demos, you might want to delete their left overs from there. Same goes for games you no longer play.

You should look to upgrading your hdd.......  These two are less than $100 and are more than enough so that you dont have to worry about capacity for a few years
