My new 40 G PS 3 will not play Assasins Creed but, will play all other titles. I do not have trouble playing movies. I am using HDMI hook up. Any suggestions?

    Hi, have exactly same the problem. I even took the original game back because I assumed it was faulty but the replacement is exactly the same.

    Same here! I took the game back today, and the same problem keeps occuring! Does anyone know how to fix this? Something to do with the TV settings? PS3 settings?

    I've loaded latest software update 2.1 as instructed onscreen(took 4hrs-119Mb).Game loads with maker's ad & 1st cutscreen pays fine, but when new game selected it locks up while loading(soundFX still playing while screen locked). I've exchanged disc & problem exactly same with new disc.Similar problem near end of Drakes Fortune-gunfight in old church-locks up every time-can't get past it.

    same with me and with assasins creed COD 4 and another new game I bought. I have sent my SONY back TWICE. First the fixed it "scratched" then I got it back, same problem so I called and freaked out because they scratched my sony and didn't fix it, so they sent me a nwew one and it dosnt work. I am pretty sure though that it is the internet updates for the games themselves that #%^& them up because I tried COD B4 I hooked up to internet and it worked, but after I got online it didn't. Now I am resetting the system to try if they will work. . . .
