Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I just bought a new (refurbished) PS3. I have bought two new games for it, Assassins Creed II and Army of Two. Neither game worked at all, the console would not even recognize them. I realized this is because the software version I had was 2.65, and the newest version released was 3.30, and in the users manual it said without the proper version, I may not be able to play some games. Due to where I am, I cannot connect my PS3 to the internet, I have to take my laptop about 1/4 of a mile to find the connection. So I went to Sony's website and downloaded the latest version on to a 4GB flash drive, saved it in the correct folders (PS3/UPDATE) and went back to my PS3. I began the system update using the media device option and everything was going smooth. When the installation started it came up with an error: 80010006. It told me to power off and try again, which I did. On start-up, it went straight to the installation and began to try again. The error came back up at 39%, and continued to do this every subsequent time that I tried. I have tried allowing it to continue the install both with and without the flash drive in and the same error always occurs. I have searched the internet for a possible fix in vain, and seeing as how I can't get around the install when I turn it on, I don't know what else I can do. Because of where I am I can only call Sony from work, where I do not have a TV or unsecure internet connection meaning I can't recieve support at the same time I can use my PS3. Also, sending it back isn't an option... I bought the system on Ebay from a company that doesn't ship to my address, meaning I had to originally have it shipped to my apartment back in the states, then forwarded to my address here.
If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: my assassins creed wont work
my copy of assasins creed would not load either so i got a replacment copy of the game which did not work either, got in contact with the store i got it from and they tell me that they have had a lot of the same complaints and there seems to be a problem on the 40gb version of the ps3 and it is unable to play this game, not really willing to part with 300 quid for a console that decides to play some games and not others so i think i'll be taking my ps3 back and getting a refund or maybe an xbox360.
