Just finished talking to sony 1-800-345-7669. technician said alls I had to do was download some pictures or a cd. well I put in a cd of the eagles and hit the triangle button, clicked yes for import cd, and viola, tools of destruction loaded. it may depend on the cd size, you may have to do more than one but it worked for me. I had a new ps3 out the box yesterday for xmas....

I had the same problem with mine right out of the box. The solution I found was that you need to add some files to your hard drive and eventually it will work. I simply copied 7 cds to the hard drive and it worked. Found that fix on the net. It was driving me crazy. There is a problem with the Game not the system. It needs to see some type of memory change before it will play.


Hope that helps.

We have got the game working now. we put in another game and had to do a couple of updates using other games. first we put in Resistance and got an update of 2.3 then we tried Tomb Raider Underworld and the PS3 updated to 2.4. I am not sure what my husband means but the updates can only be done by putting in a more recent game he says. Ratchet and Clank then worked fine. Sorry I am not that technical minded so hope you understand my speel

I also have that problem


For those of us eager to get some platforming action joy with Insomniac Games' latest next-gen masterpiece on the Sony PlayStation 3, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, you may have encountered a glitch that stops the fun dead in its tracks. Thankfully, a workaround has been provided by none other than Insomniac Games itself through the company's own community manager James Stevenson.

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. Ouch.

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.

Tomb raider Underworld-Can't go through kraken


You need to move all of the gears (three in total I think) in order to release the Kraken. Then you have to make your way back to the top and shoot the two retaining chains that hold the object above the Kraken's head. It will drop and strike the creature sending it to the bottom of the water. Then finally, at the bottom of the room there is a final gear-crank that opens the door to allow you to pass.

Hope this helps!

PS3, Ratchet & Clank, HDD Full, need 419 MB Free Space...


For some reason this software has a glitch that won't allow it to load unless you delete one of your profiles from any game. I deleted/transfered to stick a 132 MB profile from Saints row II and it loaded. I didn't need to delete 419 MB as it stated. The game loaded and plays perfectly now. I see that even a new virgin system with zero profiles does the same thing. I guess you need to download any profile of any size and delete it before you can load this one. It should have been worked out before the game was released. I am sure that there were more than a few unhappy kids Christmas morning due to this. Thank you anyway.

Ratchet and clank will not play on my ps3


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.

It worked for me.
