Got my copy in the mail early today and after doing the mandatory install and patch loaded up a new game. During the opening cutscene and initial starting area I was unable to hear Voice Audio. After deleting the install content and patch I attempted to reload the game without the patch and still had the same results. Tried doing a factory restore on my PS3 and still nothing. Other games play just fine (LBP2, Uncharted 2 and 3) so I'm at a loss of what to do next
That's a fucking bummer, bro. I remember having that exact problem with RAGE, but it a few hours in. It seemed like a very important mission and the sound was completely gone. I couldn't get it back no matter what I tried. I got rid of it.
Long story short: that sucks, and I hope you get it to work.
Why is everybody talking about having issues with Assassin's Creed before?? I have played all of them and i've never had such problems, though, I hope the same thing does not happen to me when I play AC3
I had a ton of problems in Revelations. I got stuck in buildings at least five times and had to restart my console. I also remember this one time where I walked to a rooftop, stabbed a dude, and then had him spawn in hundreds (yes, really) replicas of himself who were all screaming at me. Although, the argument could be made for that moment being ridiculously awesome (except for that part where it froze again).
Welp the only review published on metacritic talks about bugs. It's in Spanish or something though so I didn't read it other than the summary on Metacritic. I never had any problems with past Assassin's Creed games but having just bought XCOM and it being completely busted and unplayable (first ever console game for me that was unplayable) I'm a little weary on this now.
Well I've tried switching HDMI cables, I've tried switching TV's, done all updates known to man for Playstation, and still nothing. Fortunately I have a hook up at a local store that will let me swap for a 360 version since the codes aren't used.
It's the first game it's happened to me on and having done some google searching it seems like a pretty common problem for the AC franchise on PS3. Bums me out a little since I was hoping to get Liberation at some point but not a deal breaker.
Thanks for the help guys.
I find it odd that Ubisoft would show the PS3 version at a bunch of things (like E3) and then have that version be messed up, but who knows. ACII and Brotherhood were fine for me on PS3, but Revelations had some framerate troubles, so who knows!
I'll still probably buy the PS3 version. It'll probably be fine.
