Madden 09 freezing..

I got my system brand new 2 weeks ago and madden 09 has froze on me twice since the purchase. The game will do wierd things, once the picture of the player didnt come up just the outline of his head. Then, it displayed the T.O.P stat and the number was 9 digits long, normally its like 2:37 or 6:28, the game showed 297668687. Please help!

Thank you in advance!!

    I am having a freezing problem when I reached the playoffs. After completing the season, when I try to save the game, if freezes or when I try to simulate the playoffs it freezes. I even bought another Madden CD and the same problem. I have no problems with my other PS3. I jave also downloaded the latest patch but still the same problem. I even tried saving the game under various files.

The updates should be downloaded automatic (make sure you have your console connected to the network). The update should fix your freezing problems.

Nba live 09 freezing up


ya i happens to me also..i figured that
It seems like something with EA sports games make them highly vulnerable to freezing. It does that with FIFA, NHL, and Madden as well from what I hear (already froze on me once on FIFA). It could be that these games are too demanding in information processing and too graphic intensive, or whatever, but it's probably not the system. For example, I've played many games for over 40 hours now, sometimes playing hours on at a time, and it hasn't froze or glitched on me even once...

Madden 09 keeps freezing on my new xbox 360


I have the same problem with most of the EA sports games, and here's the solution. Stop buying these $60 drink coasters that EA has the balls to keep dishing out to us, and they'll either go under, or spend some time on their turds for a change. Some of the things that happen in their sports titles make me wonder if the French-Canadian A-holes have ever even seen a game or a race, for that matter. Anyway, the only way to stop the freezing is to do what I do.....throw them in the trash where they belong, and stop purchasing them.

EA Sports Games and the 360


Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

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.

Ps2 slim madden 08 lag?


yeah, that happens on mine sometimes. IT happens on both the ps2 regular and my madden 07 for psp. I thin it's probably just trying to do too much at once, and slows down because the processor isn't powerful enough.
