Unhappy Playstation 3 help

Got the kids (ok, me) a 12gb ps3.

Here's where I need the help - why is it that when I (or the kids) want to play a game, it installs 4gb of data from the disc onto the harddrive, meaning I have no space to play anything else? It's doing my f***ing head in big time

Put a new hard drive in???

I didn't know there was a 12gb version, mine was 40gb and I stuck a 250 in.

On the xbox you have a choice whether to install game data or not.

(Installing it on the hard drive means that it loads quicker, next time you want to play it).

Are you sure you didn't acccidentaly choose to do that? You could probably delete the data and start all over again.

Some ps3 games have mandatory installs, so I don't think it's that. He'll need to install/upgrade the hard drive (trip to Maplins, 30 outlay and a couple of hours pissing about)

That won't work, google 'upgrade 12GB PS3'.

it won't do, as it will always look for the HDD...

12GB isn't much at all. i've only installed MW3, BLOPS2 and GT5, which i don't play that much and it's about 60GB. as Ears said, try and get a bigger HD version of the PS3?

mine was a 40gb one. you could save next to nothing on it. not overly expensive to upgrade.
