    playing assassins creed for first time about 15mins in no sound and screen blank now system wont read any discs?

    For me this occasionally happens, but.... my audio is constantly tripping and freezing. The characters mouth moves but no sound is coming out. Also this greatly interferes since it hinders the ability to even play the game. So basically im stuck on the very first part (the tutorial) since I cannot get past this part for the audio is constantly stopping, and then being mashed altogether like 4 minutes later. HELP!!!!!

    Okay I need help....I bought Assassin's Creed for PS3 for Christmas and it has not worked at all!!!! I've returned it to the store in which i purchased it from (gamestop) and it still doesnt work. When I say doesn't work I mean the audio is constantly tripping and load times take FOREVER and sometimes are unsuccessful. The main problem is the horrible audio quality. When a character speaks it frequently skips and lags, and mostly, no sound comes out of the characters mouth- about 3 minutes later, all the missing audio spews out in one big mash of sound. This also kinda happens in UNCHARTED Drakes Fortune but not as frequent. Assassins Creed is very severe since I cannot even past the first tutorial portion because of the audio problems : HELP ME, PLUS all my other games work fine on the PS3 - I have not experienced any problems such as this!!!!

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)

I am a ps3 player and i attempt to play assassins creed: brotherhood multiplayer, and it has the animus sign and won't load... ive watched the multiplayer intro and then waited for hours, please help

This is because the Playstation Network is currently undergoing maintenance due to a recent hacking of their network. We are all still waiting for the Network to be fully restored, until then you cannot play and PS3 games online.

Just hang in there!

HDMI-can't get tv to stay 1080i

This is natural, the PS3 does not stretch the signal like the Xbox does so games play at there native resolution (720p) there is nothing wrong with your TV or your PS3 and you would not see any difference in the games graphics if it was in 1080i. I'm playing my PS3 on a 46" 1080p TV and my PS3 games look great in 720p.

RCA D52130 52 in. Won't Display High Def

I doubt you'll look at this 2 years later, or even have the T.V.

I have the same TV and was able to view ps3 and xbox 360 games in 1080i, but it's a little tricky. First, let me say that the ps3 is probably not the best system to try using 1080i in unless you have a 360 to help trick the tv into working.

Xbox 360
You need to first set the video to 1080i. This will make the screen display in a bunch of horizontal lines most of the time, but if you keep toggling it on and off, it eventually works. To avoid having to sit and swap between the two modes, it's easier to first set it to 1080i and confirm the setting, then go back into the settings, select 720 (first option above 1080i) and cancel as soon as the video mode changes. 95% of the time this will make it display correctly in 1080i mode. If you turn the tv off and back on, it will sometimes reset to the horizontal lines. If you restart the xbox, it will reset to horizontal lines most of the time. With the ps3, you can set it to 1080i and keep toggling it until it works, but when the game launches it can screw up again, so it's best to have the xbox on and ready with a component switch so you can fix it with the xbox then switch back to the ps3. I think the cable that comes with the tv for HD input (the component plugs don't work, they only support 480, but the vga looking input supports 1080i) - the cable is just poor quality and can barely handle the signal. I've been trying to find a better quality cable with no luck.

Hope this helps other people with this ancient beta HD input canadian tvness.

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.

Ps3 wont play game

Have you allowed the game to install it's latest patch (1.10)?

Blank Screen

It may be a resolution setting issue...the game may be outputting in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Try going to your video settings and knocking the resolution back to 720p for your HDMI settings under video, select your ouptut, and uncheck the boxes next to the types above 720p. Also make sure you have latest software update for ps3.

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.
