Playstation Store download

3 replies 163 views Edited Dec 21, 2012

Hi guys,

 

I just bought Hitman Absolution for PS3 on the PS Store. When I tried to download it said: No space. When I checked it turned out that I indeed had to less space. I decided to do a full formatting on my PS3 as it was to full and I didn't really care for the data what was located on my PS3. When I was done I still had the error "No space". I believe that is kinda weird, because I now got 31GB!! free space for a game the size of 17GB.

 

Why won't it download?

Hi PatjuhR,

 

You need at least double the size of the game download available on your hard drive to download and install the game.  So, you would need 34 GB of free space in order to download and install a 17GB game.  Then after installing, you'll have 17GB free.

Thanks for your reply.

But now I would have another problem. I erased all the data from my PS3 and I still got only 31GB space. Meaning I would never be able to download the game I payed for. Just because I got a 40GB system.

I solved this myself by buying a new and bigger HDD, but I think this shouldn't be needed, because nobody told me that I needed double the ammount of GB. If I would know that before i would never buy a 17GB game.
