    PS3 120GB memory question

    I have a 120GB slim and noticed my memory was at 10GB free space so I began a tidy of my files , I cleared out game data utility apart from a couple games I am playing , cleared out the saves also apart from ones I am playing and then deleted old games off PSN which I had achieved the platinum on and still only have 31/111GB of free memory the games that I have stored are =

    Alien Breed Impact = 1181mb
    Killzone 3 3D demo = 1517mb
    Splinter Cell = 2602mb
    Pandora Tomorrow = 2987mb
    Chaos Theory = 4950mb
    Dead Nation = 1662mb
    Resident Evil = 321mb
    RE2 = 762mb
    RE3 = 362mb

    And I am in the later stages of downloading Dead Space 2 off Playstation Plus = 11GB

    With all these added together comes nowhere near the 81GB of memory used so why do I only have 31/111GB free ?

    Also I don't have any pics , movies , music stored on PS its on my laptop , if anyone knows the reason could you please tell me and a way to resolve it if you can , cheers

    Assuming you also buy disc games, have you checked the saved data utility? Considering that almost all disc games require an install, you could have a lot of space taken up from those. DLC as well is found in there.

    From the number of max, some of it is taken up by the upgrades to the ps3.

    THen there is game data and saved data

    You can clean out your inbox (both sent and received messages)

    Then there is dlc, PS home

    When you sync trophies, that trophy list takes up some memory

    Also, if you surf the internet, you have a history you can delete
    You can also delete all the new words that your predictive text pops up when you type a bit

    THen there is corrupted data (hold the power button on the ps3 till it beeps 3 times and turns off. THen press the button again and hold. YOu will hear a beep, then another beep, then two quick beeps. On this screen, you can go to the third option from the top, which cleans out any corrupted stuff (you wont lose any data or stuff)

    Lastly, you should check the data on other accounts on your ps3. YOu would be surprised if there is any space taken from game saves, or just the profile itself.

    • Game Date
    • Save Data
    • Updates for PS3 take up A LOT of space
    • DLC for games
    • Anything over 1,000 MB is a GB so I would delelte that KZ3 demo, chaos theory, etc..
    • Messages really take up nothing at all
    • And delete PlayStation Home if you don't use it.. other than that, that's about it.
