Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

360 will not load or simulate in Madden 08 locks up

I was playing Madden 08 and everything was fine. I went to go into the training camps and when the loading bar on the bottom is scrolling it stops and music gets cut and locks on that screen. I can restart and go back to that point again and it will do it over and over. I also tried to simulate a week and it locked on the simulating screen. No red lights like I've been reading just the one green light for the player 1 controller. Please help, thank you.

I would recommend going back to the shop you got the game from and asking for a new copy, it seems more likely to be a disc problem than a console one, and just check that it is the correct format for your region.

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.
