Games Keep Freezing

Everytime i go to play either my ncaa 08 or madden 08 game it freezes either right away or within 10 minutes or so.

I borrowed my neighbors madden game and it still happened. So that rules out the game being the problem.

Please help

I had the same problem. If you have a hard drive connected try taking it off and then try Madden!

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.

Game freezes up in the 4th quarter.

I used to have this problem on the game 'HEATSEEKER'
I simply bought a new copy of the game at the store and, it has been fine ever since.
If that does not work go to your local wii stockist and ask for expert opinion there.

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.

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.
