Ubisoft may have released a patch for the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed, but unfortunately a number of gamers are reporting that the patch did nothing for them and the game is still freezing in various places.
To quote from the link above:
LOL - dont expect too much guys.
I was skeptic - and rightfully so. I downloaded the 25 MB update. Game launched and I tried to continue my game.
Altair froze on the blue loading screen - AS USUAL.
THIS UPDATE DID NOTHING FOR ME....
