Brand new PS3 says not enough memory to play game

We just opened our brand new PS3 and set it up, but when we try and play Ratchet and Clank: Future Tools of Destruction it won't play. It says that the HDD has insufficient memory to run the game and we need to clear some of the memory. It also says that the game takes 419Mb to play, but the system doesn't have enough space. The system is the 80GB system, so I don't understand why it wouldn't have enough space. Thank you for your time.

Need 419 mb space wen i brought console new


Maybe it wasn't brand new after all.

You can clear up the old user data by deleting it from the GAME menu. Check Game Data Folder.

If there are games that you've never played before or games that you aren't going to play anymore go ahead and delete the files.

Best of luck!

Insufficient HDD space to play a game on a brand new ps3


This is a common problem (bug) with this game. Basically you have to delete something, anything, off your harddrive. If you have nothing on then download a demo or something then delete it. This should fool yr ps3 into releasing the space you need to play r&c.

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.

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.

Brand new PS3 80GB - says I don't have enough HDD space!!!


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
