Re: 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

I have no idea why but my PS3 is freezing up alot. It all started when i got FIFA 11 before that the PS3 would work fine without a problem. First time i play it it froze in the middle of the game and it...

keep the system in a cool place PS3s are famous for overheating in short amounts of time and frezzing another option is to format and do a system restore but you may lose saved game data so be careful

Madden 08 loading problem


the way you explained how it loads and you even bought a new cd... it boils down to the lens. try cleaning the lens with a dvd cleaner. be specific with the cleaner though because cd cleaners are different from dvd cleaners. try to use the dry cleaner and not the cleaner which uses liquids.

hope this helps.

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.

Madden 09 ps3 game keeps freezing up

If you bought another copy of the game and it happens at the same exact place it's probably because your game data has become corrupted. Go to GAME, then Game Data Utility folder, delete the Madden 09 info and see what happens. It's probably a good idea to do a backup first just in case this doesn't fix the problem.

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.

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.
