Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

I have a Playstation 3 that's about a year old and I recently bought Madden 09. It worked the first couple times I played it and then it started freezing. At first it was during actual gameplay right after I selected a play. The screen would freeze up, but you could still hear the sound. Then I had trouble actually getting the system to read the game so it was able to load, and when it did actually load it would freeze right at the start menu. I thought it was the game, so I tried another one and that one didn't load either. Then I exchanged the game for a new one and that one froze right at the start menu the first time I put it in. Then I tried to put it in again right after that and it does not load. Any suggestions?

I have hear clearing out the PS3 by turning it on then turning it upside down (when it is standing like a tower). This will make the fans run really loud. Let it run for like 3 - 5 minutes and it should clean it self out. I have never tried this but i have seen it done.

Sounds like your console needs cleaning from the inside, to much dust and fluff. You will find good tutorial on you tube on opening the console.This worked for me.

Game freezes in the middle of the madden 2010 game


I had that problem with Madden 09.
I read on the internet that the older PS2 slimlines freeze
after Madden 06-07.
I bought a used satin silver SCPH 77001, a 2007 model I think,
and no more frezzing. plus this thing plays
all DVDs. not just some of them.

Playing madden 09 online


If it says ea servers not available that means the servers are down for maintenance, this is not unusual for video game servers, happens once or twice a month....

Also keep in mind playstation servers and xbox server are totally different.

PS3 Freezing Mid - Game


Madden 09 itself has a lot of issues. EA is supposed to come up with a patch to fix the freezing issue for Madden 09.
There are a lot of unhappy madden 09 owners outh there.

As far as freezing on any game that sounds like a bluray diode issue or overheating issues.
keep the console in a well vented are (maybe even add a small portable fan from walmart that can help cool down your system.
