PlayStation 4 (PS4) is a line of home video game consoles developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment, formerly known as Sony Computer Entertainment.
Announced as the successor to the PlayStation 3 during a press conference on February 20, 2013, it was launched on November 15 in North America, November 29 in Europe, South America, and Australia; and February 22, 2014, in Japan. It competes with Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s Wii U and Switch.
Moving away from the more complex Cell microarchitecture of its predecessor, the console features an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) built upon the x86-64 architecture, which can theoretically peak at 1.84 teraflops; AMD stated that it was the “most powerful” APU they had developed to date.
The PlayStation 4 places an increased emphasis on social interaction and integration with other devices and services, including the ability to play games off-console on PlayStation Vita and supported Xperia mobile devices (“Remote Play”), the ability to stream gameplay online or to friends, with them controlling gameplay remotely (“Share Play”).
The console’s controller was also redesigned and improved over the PlayStation 3, with improved buttons and analog sticks, and an integrated touchpad among other changes.
How Do I Check My Other Storage On PS4?
It’s easy to check your storage on the PS4. Go to Settings, System, and then Storage. Your current storage status will be displayed under the heading ‘This PS4’.
You can also view it in a more visual way by going to Notifications and selecting Messages, then selecting the message titled ‘The following content cannot be copied because there is not enough free space in your system storage’. This will show you a bar displaying how much space you have left and what is taking up the most space.
Steps To Delete Other Storage On Ps4
The PlayStation 4 has a 500GB hard drive, but games are getting bigger and bigger–Grand Theft Auto V alone requires 50GB of space on PS4, and when you factor in updates, downloadable content and other games, you’ll find yourself needing more room sooner rather than later. When your PS4 fills up, you need to delete things in order to keep playing.
You can delete other storage on your PS4 to clear out any files that may be taking up space.
The following steps will help you to delete other storage from your PS4:
1. From the home screen, scroll down and select Settings in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen.
2. Scroll down and select System Storage Management in the right column.
3. Select Applications, then scroll over to Other Storage and press X to highlight it. Press X again to view more information about this type of storage.
4. You are given three options: Delete All Other Data, Delete Temporary Data, or Delete Downloaded Content.
5. Select Delete All Other Data to clear out your PS4’s cache, which stores temporary files for apps and games, including game patches and updates. Deleting this data does not affect game saves or data stored on a USB drive.
