Re: ratchet clank tools of destruction will not load
If the PS3 is brand new, then I had this same problem yesterday also. Download a 1 or 2 free demos and INSTALL them by selecting them after the download. Then delete the games. I tried this from the Sony PS3 Solutions page and it worked. There are other solutions in their solutions database. Good luck and happy gaming.

XBOX 360 lets you install games to the hard drive to make for easier loading to put less stress on the system by saving the PS3 does the same thing, however they dont let you install every game just exclusive titles, so I would try that before assuming it's your system.
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.
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.
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.
