Try booting up and playing the game signed out of PSN guys, I haven't tried it but it has worked for games with similar issues in the past.
I have tried your method and it has loaded without crashing,
also last night by trial and error I managed to get the game to load when I deleted the cache in the PS3 before loading the game (unfortunately I'm not technically minded so don't understand why this would have helped it to play)
I have just emailed a report to the tech guy at Ubisoft so I will post back here if I get a response.
I can't tell you anything about the gamecrashes, but i've got a slightly different problem with this game.
I bought it today from the PSN store, but all i can download is the trial version of the game.
When i press "get the full version" ingame it says "you can't buy something at the moment".
I payed for this game, so i want the full version and not just a trial oO
read about this on gamefaqs (i bought the game yesterday).
Did any of you guys have any downloads going on in the background (off the store)?.
Apparently this was causing it for a few people.
crashed my PS3 5 times... one time it works... most of the tries it doesn't
thx for the hint. i'll try this, but the only option in my DL-list says "I Am Alive (Trial)". I don't think it'll work, but i give it a try.
I got so fed up that it wouldn't even start after several attempts and having to turn off my system each time just to be able to it - I deleted to Fe*king thing - I'm getting really p**d off with SONY downloads this has happened sveral times - ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER - AFTER ANOTHER - AFTER ANOTHER - (please excuse the rant) - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SONY GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
