I just upgraded my PS4 with a 2TB internal hard drive, yet I cannot create more saved games because of some limit. I think I had 40 game saves (not including the game's few auto-saves) and Fallout 4 wouldn't let me create any new saves until I manually deleted some first.

Is that a PS4 infrastructure restriction on a game, to keep all games within some system-wide number of saves, or is it an arbitrary number imposed by the game?

    VTLO; hardware limitations are not the same as game dev intent questions IMO. Though I do think the question could be clearer still. Edit: wait nvm, this is specifically about FO4 saves it seems. Anyway, it's still not related to mechanics or narrative. – Schism Feb 11 '18 at 18:27

    @Frank I think that asking specifically about whether there exists some PS4-imposed restriction is fine. However, I agree that asking about why FO4 devs put in such a limit, if they did indeed choose to do, is off-topic. – Schism Feb 11 '18 at 18:50

    @Schism I'm asking if it is a game mechanic or some other system imposed mechanic. – Alan Feb 11 '18 at 20:33

    I'm fairly certain this is a PS4 system restriction rather than a Fallout restriction (even if it's Fallout giving the message). I've read of similar problems in other games (Bioshock & Madden spring to mind) and in each it was the same - the game suddenly started reporting that there was no space to create another save even though their HDD was mostly empty, and the only way to solve it was by going into the system and manually deleting old saves. – Robotnik Feb 12 '18 at 5:19
