Do you keep you old game save files after selling off that game?

Some people keep their games, some trade them in once they are done, swap, sell, eBay etc, to each their own.
Once a game is out of you possession do you keep the game save file or do you delete it?

The Ps3 and 360 has a little more internal storage so there's no need to be stingey with space, if you don't have a SD card for you Wii then maybe you might do a regular clean out.

With my game save files I usually end up hanging on to them, most of the time it's not on purpose it's usually because I just forget about it. Guess it doesn't hurt hanging onto them in case that game some how ends up in your console again.
Yes I do now, because I had a clean up once and deleted the Uncharted 1 save, and because I did I missed out on some extras in Uncharted 2 :'@

I totally forgot about the occasional sequel link a few games have. Imagine if you deleted your Mass Effect game save files :E
I'm a keeper. It's not an issue with storage anymore. Have kept everything since they started rewarding you for having saves from previous games in new games.
depends on if i will every play the series again.
Of I hated the game. I'll delete the save file for it.
i do cause you never know when you might need it :P
Yes.
once i sell a game 99.9% of the time i will never have it back in my posetion so i bin all trace of it on my system

and if i ever brake tradition of picking up a game again it would be a very long time and would want to start from scratch again any way so ....
Yep, I do

Save files take up such an insignificant amount relative to the overall size of the hard drive that I don't bother deleting them.
Game data, however, is a differenty story.
If it's gotten to the point that I'd get rid of a game, then there's no chance I'd ever be playing it again, so I usually don't keep the files.
Yeah, mainly because I cbf deleting them, but also because I might go back.

I thnk the last time I deleted them was for space on the Cube Memory card because Animal Crossing took up so much room.
Keep. I mean, when you have 160 - 320gb HDD, or 500+ for some (myself), what's the point deleting? It doesn't do anything negative to keep it around, and takes minimal space......
i dont sell any games off. so i just keep the saves. even games i borrow from people i just keep the save cos it doesnt hurt like others have said with all the space we have on current gen consoles

11gb / 160gb isn't even 10%. I doubt the rest of your games & save files take the remaining 149gb?

*if you do have a 160gb, as minimum.
I do have a 160gb.

And 10% is a lot.
I always keep them, when i used to trade. Just incase I ever got the game again. Now I just keep games. I don't trade anymore. You get ripped off when doing it
I keep them just in case I get the urge to buy that game again and don't want to start from scratch, I usually just delete the install base if I'm desperate for space.
I do. Unintentionally. When I release I have a saved game for Perfect Dark Zero, for example, I trip out and release it's not 2005 anymore so I delete it.

Happens all the time.
i do i cant seen to throw anything away and sometimes its fun to go back to the old games like yesterday i went back to heavenly sword and that still looks great

This ^^
i never delete my files because i don't sell any of my games
I never sell my games so keeping game saves are none of my concern.

Though when I borrow a game, I still keep the game save. :P
