    I had this problem often with my first Xbox 360 as it was only 20GB.

    Fortunately, have upgraded since then...however now due to PS+, my PS3 is often out of space every couple of months or so. I'm pretty sure my PS4 will be suffering a similar fate soon enough too.

    With that said, I'm rather curious how you guys are doing, storage wise on your consoles.

    I don't really get a lot of those downloadable games or buy the dlc on consoles so not an issue for me.

    I might get a bigger hard drive for my PC though as that is starting to run low.

    I wish i could swap the HD's of my xb1 w/ my pc. I have 1 tb on my pc which probably only about 60% is used. But my other drive is at like 97% filled XD

    Yeah these games are getting a lot larger, in fact, it would surprise me if the next generation of consoles don't start out with 1TB as the minimum capacity.

    I didn't even have enough storage on my Shield Tablet to download one game. ONE! -__-

    I buy physical copies of games for my console as often as I can. I try to keep the downloads to digital-only content and PS+ content.

    Every few months, I'll go through my digital games and installation files and delete anything I don't use or want anymore.

    So far, this is working out for my 320GB model :p

    Speaking of low storage space, take a look at this upcoming 100GB game: http://kotaku.com/star-citizen-might-take-up-at-least-100gb-1691045703

    I still remember the pains of downloading a 10MB demo on dialup.

    Enthusiasts only! lol

    I'm actually happy to see that! I'm always pleased when I see someone create their thing how they want it, regardless of if completing their view may restrict it's audience. I think part of the reason there seems to be a lack of originality everywhere is that too many people try to aim for the biggest audience popular by going with what works. Which makes complete sense in a business and financial world, but not in an artistic one.

    And God damn it I want the art!

    That is a lot of space but since it's for PC gamers I don't think it will really have a negative impact as most of those players would probably have a high speed connection to begin with.
