Apparently, some Assassins Creed 2 players are reporting a glitch that traps the player in the Hideout with no way out of it.
The error occurs when players save and shut the console down after finishing Chapter 11. Upon restarting, the only way to escape the Hideout is to begin the game anew.
CVG has contacted Ubisoft, and until a response is issued, the site recommends you not “quit out of the game”.
Just go play something else until a fix or workaround is announced, we reckon.

Looks like Assassin’s Creed II has been given the Digital Foundry treatment with the latest Face-Off between the 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
Here’s the final analysis:
“It’s fair to say that while Assassin’s Creed II has a number of important advantages on Xbox 360, the crucial thing is that the improvements to the PS3 engine are such that the performance deficit isn’t going to get in the way of having a great time.
“It’s an essential game on both platforms, but if you’ve got both consoles, the 360 version is clearly the more solid performer.”

The rest with anorexic wallets will just have to pick one and wait on Santa to bring more – or get some from a very giving stranger driving a van. He may look a bit mad with that hair and strange gleam in his eye, but the clown mask beside him on the passenger’s seat with fishing line and surgical gloves says “good times ahead” and you know it.
