PS3 Firmware 2.01 = Assassins Creed fix?


With the release of Assassins Creed marred by tasteless Jade Raymond jokes, glitches, freezing and a “white screen of death” , PS3 and Xbox 360 owners are up in arms. It has been noted that many of those who have encountered issues are using the 2.0 firmware, causing many users to hold off on the current update. As of now, Ubisoft Official Forum managers are urging its forum give them as much information as possible so that these problems may be resolved. Within the very same time-frame, the official Playstation Blog has let word out that a 2.01 update is on the horizon.

A 2.01 update so soon after the big 2.0 seems rather strange. The only detail mentioned in the blog post is that the coming update will be “a minor update that will improve the stability of PLAYSTATION 3.” The key word definitely being stability. This is why, I am of the opinion that this coming update directly addresses the technical issues with Assassins Creed, similar to the updates that did some tweaking on Warhawk and Lair. Hopefully this will get resolved quickly cause my pre-order just shipped.

Update :

According to a blog post from William Harrison over at bebo, entitled “How To Stop Assassins Creed From Freezing And The Frame Rate Issues”. The freezing and frame-rate issues can be fixed by simply turning off the information board and not signing in to the Playstation Network.

  3. The information board deal doesn’t fully work from what I understand. I don’t know how many people this is effecting exactly though.

  4. I agree, may just be a vocal minority. None of the video reviews mention anything major

  5. I don’t believe that the 2.01 update is going to fix the Assassin’s Creed Problems since it is having problems on both the PS3 and 360 version’s. I have also read that PS3 FW 1.94 is also experiencing the same issues. I believe that the firmware 2.01 update is going to fix the problems with the new Remote Play Features in which with some Routers when you have the remote play on and you turn on and off your PS3 with your PSP your PS3 automatically Turns on & off without you doing anything. I believe it is a game problem not a firmware Problem.

  6. I have assassin’s creed for ps3, and it frickin owns! Never had a framerate problem ever.

  7. Yup, it definitely had some powerful and compelling ideas and mechanics, despite being repetitive. It is a must play to fully enjoy the next one which will kick ass for sure
