Update: This has now been patched for PS3 users, and an update for XBox 360 fans is slated for December 11, 2009.
This seems to be the weekend for reporting video game glitches, with this Assassin's Creed 2 game-breaking glitch and several Modern Warfare 2 glitches surfacing.
According to CVG.com, some gamers found themselves stuck controlling Desmond in the Hideout after DNA Sequence 11, a direct result of shutting off their system after the game autosaved.
When they later booted the game back up, they were unable to return to the Animus and continue Ezio's 15th century adventure. However, reports are mixed on whether this is affecting Xbox 360 or PS3 gamers, or both.
To quote: "It doesn't seem to happen to everyone, but once it does occur there appears to be no way out of it other than to start over again.
CVG has contacted Ubisoft and awaits a reply. For now, we'd advise you not to quit out of the game after that particular checkpoint."
