Can you believe I'm out of online storage space for the ps4 already. Jesus its not even been a year yet. And why doesn't it show how much you've got left? And why is every bloody game save 11mb? I can appreciate the hdd running out, but not online storage, which by the way is unlimited for the Xbone.

And breath......

It does tell you what free space you have remaining and the total space on the PS3.

Saved Data Utility (PS3) > Online Storage

I'm guessing it shows the figures are for all storage even though it only shows PS3 saves.

I've got 886Mb free. Heck @Slaine, you must have played a heck of a lot of games! Time to clear out some junk saves.

no idea what mine is, I take it that you share the storage space between PS3, PS4 and Vita then?

I think so.

I think the storage figure on the PS3 may only be for PS3 saves. I've just totted up my PS4 saves and they are around 300mb, which is more spaced used than shown by the free space figure I mentioned earlier.

Can you not copy them over to USB?
I could do. They total to 1.3gb, and I only possess a 1gb stick, which means I'd have to buy bigger. My gripe is I shouldn't have too. My ps3 and vita isn't full at all, and I've had them longer and have more games for them. Its not even been a year ffs, andits not as if I do multiple saves either.
Hopefully Sony will realise the storage quota is insufficient and bump it up again, like they did for the ps3, as I ran out therre before they increased it. The Xbone has unlimited storage.

Be careful though as the ps4 doesn't recognise memory sticks that are too large (I think it's either 4 or 8 Gb max but I can't be sure - leaning towards 8 personally), and it definately doesn't like external hard drives

I think you only get 1gb online storage. Same as Vita and PS3.
