Maybe you should delete some memory.

Apparently the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed freezes the PS3 but this only happens at certain points in the game where a load happens. I don't think this is the case for you since you're saying that it doesn't even load the game.

Secondly, what do you have it connected to? SDTV or HDTV? Sometimes if the signal selected is not supported by the TV, it will not show anything.

Lastly, I would try to perform a system update by connected it to the Internet. This will download firmware 2.00 and might be able to help aleviate your issues.

Good luck. BTW, not a bad time to pick up a PS3. some good games coming next year :)

Save file corrupt when started playing my game

Once a file is corrupt it cannot be saved. (I have dealt with numerous Fallout and Skyrim corrupt saves on Ps3 if I could have saved them I would) Assassins creed black flag is known to have some problems with corrupts but i thought that they were patched (check to see if its up to date)

Assassin's Creed 2 won't load on Xbox 360

Sounds like your cd drive is not reading the discs properly. If that's not the problem, then you have a scratched disc on your hands.

Do what I did. Go to and sell your scratched/non-working game to them. They will give you good money for it.

Since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot

Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge

or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

My assassins creed wont load????

well the game must meet the minimum requirements of ur system. even a slightest decrease in ur video card configuration or direct x version or even the required memory then it would fail to turn up and re installing it again and again will not solve the issue.even just buying a new video card will not help. ur desktop MUST meet all the requirements of the game.

Assassins creed PS3

Your HDTV only supports 1080i ? If thats the case make sure that under settings youve got only 1080i selected appart from 480p which is standard.

If thats not the case then tell me: Does sound play or just a blank screen and no sound??? (game crashes)

My assassins creed wont load????

If you all are still having this problem, this is what I had to do. There are 2 places where you have to go in to and delete the assassins creed game data. One is the normal save data, but there is also a place with the game data that is corrupted. If you go in and delete both the save data AND the game data, it should reload all of that the next time you put the disk in and allow you to play.
