Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

EA Sports Games and the 360

My Madden 09 Disc freezes up every other game. So does GTA IV but no other games do this SCiV, COD4, Halo 3, etc.

Note: Already cleared the cache (still freezes), played without the HD (still froze), and am on the second copy of Madden 09. I have also played on someone elses system (elite) and it didn't freeze, only played one game though!

    Same exact problem. GTA IV did it and now Madden is freezing. I can't get through a single game without it freezing.

Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

Nba live 09 freezing up


ya i happens to me also..i figured that
It seems like something with EA sports games make them highly vulnerable to freezing. It does that with FIFA, NHL, and Madden as well from what I hear (already froze on me once on FIFA). It could be that these games are too demanding in information processing and too graphic intensive, or whatever, but it's probably not the system. For example, I've played many games for over 40 hours now, sometimes playing hours on at a time, and it hasn't froze or glitched on me even once...

Madden 09 keeps freezing on my new xbox 360


I have the same problem with most of the EA sports games, and here's the solution. Stop buying these $60 drink coasters that EA has the balls to keep dishing out to us, and they'll either go under, or spend some time on their turds for a change. Some of the things that happen in their sports titles make me wonder if the French-Canadian A-holes have ever even seen a game or a race, for that matter. Anyway, the only way to stop the freezing is to do what I do.....throw them in the trash where they belong, and stop purchasing them.
