It’s called Astro’s Playroom and it’s a stock game that Sony made specifically for the PS5.

The game is designed to showcase all the goodies of the PS5’s new DualSense controller.

And if you’ve never tried it, it’s definitely worth going through in its entirety.

But when you’re done with it (or no longer interested in a playthrough), it’s best to delete it.

The game takes up 10.98 GB of storage space on your console, which is no small amount.

You could easily omit that to install another small game, DLC, or free up that last bit of disk space to download the latest blockbuster title.

The beauty is that Astro’s Playroom is completely free.

So if you ever change your mind and want it back, you can just download it again.

Playing through the game only takes a few hours, so it’s not a huge time waster.

Deleting Astro’s Playroom is very simple – and the same process applies to any other game you wish to delete.

Simply locate the game in your library and then click the Options button.

Then you can tap on “Delete”.

It will remain in your library but will be uninstalled.

Then, if you change your mind, you can re-download it to play again later.

Consider that Astro’s Playroom takes up just under 2% of your total usable console memory.

While you can delete it if you’re running low on disk space, it might not be worth it unless you’re running out of disk space.

However, blockbuster games can now take up tens (and on rarer occasions hundreds) of gigabytes of storage space on your console.

Hence, deleting Astro’s Playroom is an important hack to remember.
