    Yes I have had this same problem over and over and over again. The only way I can get through is to take back the PS2 the game and memory card and return it for new stuff. Then it works for a few games, sometimes mabey even a week or so, then the same BS happens again! THIS IS HORRIBLE!! I have gone through this BS about 6 different times. I contact EA and they say to run the uro Trace, copy save past and send the attachment balh..blah..blah. I do all of that and they respond back by telling me to do the same thing?? No answers!????????? EA SUCKS!!! I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE MADDEN - BUT EA F'N SUCKS ASS !!

EA now shuts down servers for older games. Check for your game on this list: If it's on the list, EA has shut down the server and you can't play online any more:

This is a problem for alot of poeple. I have been on this issue nonstop for about a week now. I called my ISP wich is Cable One. They are telling me that it is the not responding. Which is AT&T. AT&T is the one with the problem. I ran the UOTrace that EA tech support sent me and there were 5 different host names on the poll that were ip's. I sent 239 packets and got a 100% packet loss from I have tried to contact AT&T to inform them of this huge problem that alot of poeple are experiencing. I havent gotten a response back from them yet. I am not an AT&T customer, but the route my ISP takes to get to the EA Servers unfortunatley goes through If anyone can get intouch or get info from AT&T let me know.

When i push the play online button and it says could not connect to ea servers for madden 10

It is likely the servers have been deactivated for sometime not due the the introduction of The PSN and Xbox live. Im not sure on this so it could be a network setup Issue. Is the PS2 connected to the internet. and does the connection work with other titles. If id does work with other Titles it may be the EA server is down.

Ea server

If you have madden 07 or earlier it probably is. If you have madden 08 or any other current football games it might be down temporarily for maintenance.

I had the same problem where I'm logged into XBox Live and I couldn't get into the EA servers to play any EA games. This is what worked for me:

1. Hit the XBox button and Log out of XBox live.
2. Go to the Settings tab and select System Settings.
3. Choose Console Settings then Clock.
4. Choose Daylight Savings and set this to OFF and back out.
5. Log back into XBox Live and the time will be set automatically.
6. Start you EA Game and Have Fun!!!
