Brand New PS3 claims insufficiant space.


There is a similar problem with other games, such as Ratchet and Clank. The fix for these have been to install and/or unistall something of about the same size (A demo from PSN works pretty well). Hopefully this works for the issue you have with Prototype.

I just installed a WD Scorpio Black 500GB HDD to my PS3. I did all the required steps to insure complete restoration of my game data. The question I have is why when I backed up my 40GB original HD and...


ok it is perfectly normal for that memory to be missing the ps3 reserves something like 12% of the memory for system management and to create a swap file and also for general processes, and the games also take up 2gb of space a game or close to. all this should be stated on the box of the HDD, differs with brands

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.

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
