I just bought a brand new PS3 and I put in the Ratchet & Clank Game, Tools of Destruction. After the intro of the game, I get a message that says I need 412mb of space to play game and for me to free up space on my HDD. I checked my space and I have 64GB of free space, so that makes no sense... I put in another game, for the first time, Prince of Persia, and it played fine. Is there a problem with my console or with the software?

So what causes the video gaming happy to suddenly cease and desist? James Stevenson explains that like Resistance: Fall of Man, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
needs to install a few files into your hard drive for the game to
actually run. Here's where things start getting a little dicey: even
though you've got loads of free space on your hard drive, the game
could read your hard drive as full, and therefore refuse to install.
What's the workaround, then? It's really a simple
procedure. James advises that to make the problem go away, all players
need to do is either free up 500 megabytes' worth of space, or download
500 megabytes worth of data from the PlayStation Network
Store. Yes, we know, it's weird, having to fill up your hard drive just
so a game can detect all the loads of free space available, but if it
lets us play something as good as Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, then fill up we must.
since you bought it, delete it, then go into account management and un activate your ps3 an reactivate it, an re download the game, sounds kinda weird i know but it happend to me as well for luminus and siren
Get a music CD and put it in the machine, then press the triangle and select import. You may have to use more than one CD to get it to work. There are some files missing that are needed for Ratchet & Clank which are on music CD's.
this is a known big in the game , i listed the report below
We have identified a data loading issue with PS3 and Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, which may affect users who boot the game up for the first time.
During the pre-game set-up procedure, game data is automatically saved to the PS3 HDD. It has been found that, on occasion, this data fails to copy to the HDD, with an on-scree message claiming that there is insufficient space to do so - despite the fact that there is in fact enough free space on the drive.
ACTION: For every 4GB of HDD space, there is a 540MB range that will cause the game to display a message indicating that there is insufficient space to create game data. This message will therefore occur when the following amount of free space is on the HDD:
- 4010-4550MB; - 8010-8550MB; - 12010-12550MB; - at every subsequent 4GB interval (i.e 16010-16550MB, etc)
If the PS3 HDD is within any of these ranges when booting without game data created, this message will appear. After game data is created, this will never appear, so if a user doesnt encounter it at first, they never will. Any users who do receive this message will need to either delete data from or save data to the HDD, so that the amount of free space no longer lies within the range detailed above
I have read through some forums for you, and it appears that there is a bug that reads your disk as full even if it is not. The fix is to add at least 500MB of game data to your harddrive, then it will work. I think the bug was on the american version of the game. It read an almost empty harddrive as full.
