Ps 3 problems with game play madden 08 franchise mode

I play madden 08 in franchise mode. i am having problems with the game freezing at the end of a played game so i am unable to save my progress. also during franchise mode i am unable to simulate the other weekly games that i would not play. i have bought 2 extra copies of the madden 08 game so i am sure it is not a problem with the disk which i thought it was initially. i have an original version ps3 60 gb.

This sounds like you might have a dirty lens. clean your ps3's lens with any CD/DVD cleaner kit and then try to play the game again.

Have madden 2009 on 4th year of franchise mode,I'm on 1st game(pre-season)and after I play game with my chosen team,I'll exit game and try to sim the other games,but it will then freeze and I need to turn...


Hello

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.

If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.

Problems playing in 2nd season of Madden 09 Franchise mode.


I think your lens may be very dirty. And alos please tell if the problem is only with this gamne or all the other games as well?
moreover, if your lens is dirty, you'll have to clean it using a lens cleaner, OR get it replaced lens).
I got my PlayStation's lens replaced when it was giving me trouble and all was fine after that.
Best of luck.

Madden 09


When I first started the game I think remember downloading a update. But I think it was a roster update. How do you download the up date?

This is a three man franchise league. When we got to week 17 of the first season and played our games, that was the last time the franchise would save. After reaching the playoffs playing my game the franchise would not save at all. It would freeze up. Then if you try to simulate the playoffs. It would freeze up. After playing with it we were able to get to the end, but when advancing to the off-season it would freeze up. Finally, figured out when we got to pro bowl to save it and it worked no freeze-ups. We were able to advance to the off season after that, did all off-season stuff and got to the preseason. Now when trying to simulate preseason it will freeze up. What the heck.

Madden 08 loading problem


This sounds like you guys have discovered a bug, or glitch ... whilst i know this is very annoying if you love your console and games as much as i do, you want a fast easy fix ... and you want it yesterday.

Due to the nature of your complaint, and the fact that one other person has discovered a similar problem with the same game, i would firstly contact the software developer ( the guys who made it ) and ask them for a fix or as we say "patch" to help iron out this problem.

Get online at easports and register and perhaps take a look at the forums.

Games will always have glitches and bugs, ea have been around for ages so their support team should be "on the ball" with problems like this =)

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.

A previously released Madden NFL 08 update for the PLAYSTATION 3 was causing an error code (80010009) to appear and prevent online game play.

There has been a fix published by Electronic Arts (EA) on this problem.

This has now been resolved, but if you already downloaded the update, you will need to remove it before the game will work.

Please follow the steps provided by Electronic Arts below.


If you have encountered an '80010009' error message after downloading the most recent Madden NFL 08 update, please perform the following steps listed below:
  1. Press the PS button on the controller and select QUIT.
  2. In the main screen of the XMBTM user interface, select Game.
  3. Highlight the Game Data Utility folder and press the X button.
  4. Highlight the Madden NFL 08 file and press the Triangle button.
  5. Delete the file.
  6. Restart the game.
This will allow you to launch and play Madden NFL 08.

Help with PS3


EAsports says that there is a new roster update that will help this problem. I had the same exact problem when i would try and head into the offseason.
Their answer was that "there weren't enough players in the free agent pool". and that's why the game is freezing.
so, there are, you have to download the new roster update and start a new franchise
