If you were eagerly awaiting the PSP version of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed, subtitled Bloodlines, don’t buy it on the PSP Store – at least not yet. I can’t check for myself but we’ve had word in this morning that the digital download version doesn’t work – it crashes as the point where the UMD version asks to install – on any PSP. I don’t know why or whether Sony are even aware of the issue as of now, but the game is still available to download from the Store priced at £23.99 at the time of going to press.
I’ll fire off an email to Ubisoft this morning and see if we can’t get this resolved with some kind of patch for anyone that’s already splashed the cash.
Update: Ubisoft have let me know that they’re aware of the problem and are working hard with SCEE to get it fixed.
