    Out of memory

    soo.... what are my options?

    I've acquired a nice amount of games from being a Plus member for bout a year, that I don't wish to lose...

    Can I buy an external specifically for the ps3 and just use it to store games?
    Will they run from the external or will I have to transfer them each time I want to use them?
    will ps3 allow me to do that?

    can I add memory a different way?

    Thanks for the help ahead of time...

    no u cant do that... if games are the majority of ur hdd space then i would suggest getting a bigger internal hdd and u can re download them all but if movies, music, and pics are a big space of it then an external would be a good idea cuz u can watch movies off it

    Delete games you don't play regularly, they can always be downloaded from your Downloads list again.
    Delete Game Data files (disc-installations, game updates and DLC files) for games you don't play.
    Keep your Game Saves.

    The above external HDD method would only appear to work for media files and backing up themes and game saves. You can not backup or run PS3 games from an external drive.

    The best thing to do is simply replace the internal HDD with a larger model, download all your stuff from the PS Store and reinstall your disc-based games. Backup your saves to PS+, recreate the PSN account and download the saves.

    Just delete game data and keep your game saves. That way if you ever wanna come back, you'll have your progress.

    I agree with the whole deleting gamedata and keeping your game saves because that's what I do and I always have space. My PS3 hardrive is only 80gb and I always have up to 40gb free because I only keep the gamedata for games I play regularly and only have a few downloaded games I play regularly aswell. Why have over 60 downloaded games when you only play maybe a few of them same thing goes for those 5-8gb gamedata installs. Delete them because there in your downloaded list so you can always get them back.

    How about finish a couple of your games first and delete them and/or delete games that you aren't planning on playing for a while. If they're PSN games you can redownload them again through the Download List.





    You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push

    I thought they changed it so you can't re-download things?
