  1. a usb drive will probably work so try that. On ps3 they probably do have because it is a more modern system and up to date.

  2. You can save game data on a flashdrive but you can’t save a dlc on it and u could always delete the saved data that you don’t need anymore for games you don’t play

  3. you can copy game saves to a flash drive but can’t use them from the flash drive , you’d only save space if you deleted come items or better yet you can just upgrade to a larger hard drive and add space instead

    you would need to either start all your games over and re-download all your games , dlc and updates or use an external hdd and the backup utility to do a full backup , once the backup is finished just pop off rhe hdd cover and replace the hard drive with a larger one ( up to 500 gigs , under $80 , 5 minutes to install )

    you just need to buy a 2.5 inch sata 5400 rpm laptop hard drive , this does not void any warranty either

    with a 500 gig hdd installed you’ll have more than enoguh space.

  4. Sadly I don’t believe there is a way to save a downloaded game to an external memory drive or something like that.

    However you can upload virtual data. Check out this link:
