You guys know it's acceptable to delete old stuff you're not using any more right? You can always download it again if you want to play it again.
That's the bit I struggle with. Bit like why I keep clothes and shoes I no longer wear but don't throw out just incase I will.
I hope the download list on the PS4 will be better (a search function would be nice) as it's PITA trying to go through your list trying to find what you want on the PS3. Bit like my wardrobe really....

I'm hoping (nievely) that the PSN store in general will be a whole lot more usable, unlike the utter gash that it is at the moment.

If I was going to download a specific game I've already had I would avoid using my downloads list and search the store directly for the game and redownload it that way, but filters/search facility on the downloads list would be useful so you could filter out DLC for example.

Not being one for downloading all that much i've not had a real issue with this, although it was a pain in the arse when I switched consoles and had to go through all my Rock Band DLC and set them each away to download.

I'll wait until I'm struggling with available storage and upgrade to a 2-3tb hybrid drive at that point.

Downloading to the Vita is so much faster than the PS3 i'm expecting the PS4 to be just as good

Oh the joys of uncapped internet. I remember those days.

Alas over here its 3rd world internet. That and having ps plus means goodies to get.

Next question, what format will the ps4 hdd be? Fat32 again (still haven't watched the movie, whens the faq report due?)
