PS4 Installing and Updating Storage Issue

Aug 9, 2023
I had 120 gb free on my PS4 Slim and I tried to install a Madden game that only takes up 48 gb, but my ps4 says I need at least 125 gb free to install. This is a issue that has seem to somehow to have gotten worse. I have found that I can never have any less than 70 gb free even if its to install a 50 mb update. People that I have talked to have said that this isnt an issue for them. A guy I talked to from Playstation said I have to have double the storage of the actual game, and for updating, I have to have double the game, as well as double whatever the update is. Anyone else had this problem or know how to fix it?
