If you're looking to clean up your PlayStation 4 game library, or if you need to make some space on your hard drive, deleting games is a pretty easy process.

Please note that deleting game files from your PS4 library will only delete them locally – meaning they'll no longer take up space on your console, and your game files will be removed. This won't delete the games from your account, however. That happens through your PSN account, which means you can always re-download whatever game you remove.

Now, grab your controller and follow these steps to learn how to delete video game files from your PS4 library.

If you're giving your PS4 to someone else, the first thing you should do is reset it to factory settings.
