With certain games taking up as much as 100GB each, you may find yourself unable to keep more than a few installed at a time. Fortunately, managing your storage space and making room for new games is easy. Here’s how you can delete games on your PS4.
Deleting Games from your PS4 Library
Deleting a game from your console is a straightforward process. Follow these steps, and you’ll be well on your way to freeing up valuable storage space.

Deleting Games from System Storage
If you want to clear out a significant amount of space, you may choose to delete games from the system storage menu itself. The storage menu conveniently lists games in size order, making it easier for you to identify which games are taking up the most space.

Step 7: With your desired selections made, choose “Delete.”
Step 8: Confirm your selections by pressing OK.
Reinstalling Digital Games
Reinstalling games that you’ve purchased digitally is a simple process.
Step 1: Select “Library” and scroll down until you find the “Purchased” section on the home screen. If you’re searching for specific PlayStation Plus games, you can click on the yellow plus sign under the Purchased icon.
Step 2: Games that aren’t already downloaded on your console will feature a small download icon. Click on the respective game’s download icon, and it will begin reinstalling on your console.
Deleting and Reinstalling Disc-Based Games
If you’re playing a disc-based game, you can manually remove the data.
Step 1: Search for the game in your library, click on it, and scroll down until you see the “Delete” icon on the right side.
Step 2: Click on the “Delete” icon to remove the game.
Step 3: Always ensure that you remove the game disc before deleting it from your console.
Step 4: To play the game again, simply reinsert the disc and reinstall it on your console.
