Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Madden 08 (sometimes) freezes up in franchise part!! Ug!

My son says it doesn't freeze up during game play, just when he's in that franchise part, often I see he's in the "house" part. Cleaning discs doesn't do anything. He clicks around VERY fast. Is he giving the system time to change screens??

    This is a Wii that is 7 months old.

    Can the user make the disc faulty? i.e., if we get a new Madden 08, is there something we should not be doing that we (he) may have done to this one? (There are no visible scratches on the one we have.) Can discs get too hot?

If it freezes always with same disk then the disk is faulty.

    Check if the disk is dirty or scratched, if it is not then either the disk (CD plastic support ) is faulty, or it can even be a bug in the game software program.
    What game is it?

    As long as the problem happens always with the same disk, the Nintendo is ok, is the game that is faulty.

    Sure, if you leave CD surface to solar lights, or if cd stays at high temperatures the cd can be damaged, sometimes there is no visible damage.
    Regarding a bug in the game, there is no known bug of this kind in Madden 08, but you never know, users often discover new bugs in games. In this case you can report to EA SPORTS.

    More than a bug in the game, it can just be a bad manufactured CD, contact EA, E-mail EA Customer Support , and explain the problem, I think they will give you instructions on how to get a replacement.

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.

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
