Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

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 did go to the XBOX desktop and cleared all my Madden 08 history out and then everything started working great again. That really sucked though because 5 franchise years and probaly over 75 hours of time GONE. Thanks for the reply and the xbox site was on the right track.

    Yeah, I have the same problem. When I attempt to go into training camps or rehab my players, the loading bar drags. The music and loading bar automatically stops. It will do it 8 out of 10 times. I'm in my 21 season in Franchise mode.

    It just started freezing when i enter training before the game.  It's sooooo frustrating.  Is it better to get Madden 09?  I mean i really don't want to start buying these games every time a new one comes out.

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.

Go to create a player and customize him, fill his stats, and choose a team, and save, then go back to the menu and choose superstar mode and instead making a new guy, go to play as rookie and then find your created player on the list. You can play for any team you want and your stats will be full.

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 =)

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.
