Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My game won't play because it says I have insufficient memory

I'm trying to play Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction and every time I put the game in to start playing. It gives me this message that I have insufficient memory and that Ratchet and Clank needs at least 419mb to run. I check my system and I still have 64 gb/74gb of memory left on my ps3. I even backed up all my game data I currently have on my ps3 did a full system restore and it still says I have insufficient memory to play Ratchet and Clank. I have no idea what to do! Please help

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.

HI there. This is a PS3 bug and the only solution available was to format the PS3.

So i would recommend you to back up your save files and then go to system settings and restore hard disk to default.

Once done, update your PS3 to the latest firmware, return your save files and then try to install Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

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!

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.

Ratchet and clank future: tools of destruction game doesnt play


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.

I hope this helps
