PS4 Folders

38 posts in this topic

Thanks to 4.0 we have folders - yay

 

I have 53 games on my hard drive so this update was most welcome

 

Got mine set up into 4 folders

 

Coop - games that i mostly play coop with friends

Solo - when none of my friends are online

Kids - crap the kids play on their profiles that I don't want on my trophy lists

Media stuff - stuff like share-play PS live etc that i don't really use all that often

 

How do you guys use them?

I only use it on the Vita so that the icons don't mess up the background images :lol:.

 

Is this question extendable to PS3 users? Because I separate mine in 3: currently playing, downloaded and patched to play soon, done and helping other people with.

Welcome back :highfive:.

I put mine into Currently Playing, Platinumed or 100%ed, Need to Complete and & Other Crap

 

Currently Playing has games that I am currently playing or have yet to start.

 

Platinumed or 100%ed is self-explanatory

 

Need to Complete is either games I have finished but not got all of the trophies on or games I haven't finished yet

 

& Other Crap has things that aren't games that I can't get rid of off my home screen such as PS Music, PS Video, etc..

Folders is an awesome much needed feature, I just don't have a big enough hard drive to actually have a use for them. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 takes a fifth of my hard drive space.

I only made one folder:

 

Bloatware - Pretty much what the name suggests. PS Video, Media Room, Sharefactory, Spotify and all that crap that no one ever uses but they still don't let us delete it.

 

If only "What's New?" and Communities were something I could put in there too. What's New is probably the worst of them all as it shoves itself right in your face every time you boot the console. 

 

I delete games I don't play anymore so there's no need for anything else.

Stuff I'm currently playing is left on the main dash.

I only have a folder with all my games. This is by far one of the best features ever added to ps4 although it should have been there from day 1..

Haven't created them yet since I don't have anything to play on PS4 so no reason to start it but when I do, I will have these:

 

  • Weeb games - Main folder
  • To Play
  • Finished games

So far I made the folders...

  • "Discs" - All my physical discs are here
  • "Indies" - Well, Independent games
  • "Free-2-Play"

I may consider create more folders such as "PS+ Games", "Games to 100%" or "Craps" (all the useless apps I never use). I may also add "Online Trophies" so I remind myself all the PS4 games with online trophies I haven't got yet, but I consult often my Trophies outside with my phone to refresh my remaining online trophies.

 

Wish I can "pin" apps though so they stay in a spot no matter I play games recently, but maybe in a near future.

 

I'm used to keep games for a while (in case of damn DLC trophies...) before I definitely delete them from my console.

I don't have too many games, so I haven't put them in a folder yet. So far my only folder is called 'Apps', and I put all that useless crap that I can't uninstall in there.

I only have one or two games installed at a time on the PS4 and play it until it's done before starting a new one. No point in making a folder for that!

I just can't understand why this took so long. I don't really organize games into separate folders but I do order them alphabetically.

This, except mine is titled "Whatever." I plan on using literally none of that stuff, ever.

So far by genre, but small genres are combined with another one like Puzzle and Platform.

I just got around to doing mine:

  • Unfinished Games
  • Games Not Started
  • Completed Games
  • App Dump

When I'm actively playing a game, I'll take it out of the folder so it's easier to access. My XMB (or whatever it's called) currently looks like this:
