Console Storage

If you are trying to download the game, but it is failing to do so then the issue might be due to insufficient storage. Luckily the PlayStation App also allows you to see the console’s storage by pressing the button, as seen in the image below.

You can view the games installed on both your console and your M.2 SSD if you have installed one. Simply delete the games that you don’t play anymore and try to download the game again.
