While the PS5 is advertised as a 1TB console, you only have around 660GB of free space to keep all of your games. It's possible you'll find yourself running out of room sooner rather than later, and when that happens, you can quickly free up space by deleting old games you no longer need. Here's how to do it!

How to delete games from your PS5

Digital games have a lot of perks to them. You don't have physical discs cluttering your entertainment stand, launching a game is as easy as selecting the icon from your home screen, and you never have to worry about which disc is in the console and which isn't.

The downside to digital games, however, is that they take up a lot of storage. The PS5 only has around 660GB of usable space, so if you start loading it up with a bunch of titles, it won't take too long before you run out of room. Thankfully, you can easily delete old games you no longer play to free up precious storage.

Here's what to do:

  1. From your PS5 home screen, open Settings (the gear icon in the upper-right corner).

You can delete games whenever you'd like, so feel free to repeat this process however many times you need. And should you want to re-download a game you delete, it'll always be in your Library for easy installation.
