Sony PS3 Madden 08 freeze problem?


I have a PS3 and recently bought Madden 08 only to find that it regularly freezes up. In fact, today I brought the game back to Best Buy, exchanged it for a new one, and found that the new one is just the same.

Please know that all other PS3 games play fine on the unit, with the exception of the game called ‘Mr. Bigs’ which we rented once and could not play due to constant ‘freeze ups’

Anyone else had this problem? It’s pretty frustrating, to say the least.

Thank you in advance for your help.

  1. Log off of PS3 Online then start Madden 08.

    I have been having the same issue and have only gotten to play the game twice. Today I returned my Madden and got another one. My internet connection was down because I had to reset my modem so I was not signed in. I put in Madden and it worked fine. I then signed on and it froze after loading the game on the menu screen. So then I logged out and tried it again. It work fine. I tried to log on while inside the game so I could play online and it froze just after I logged in. The first time I played Madden I was not logged on. The second time I wasn’t at the beginning and i logged in from inside the game and played online. I am still trying to find a complete cure.

    Long story short. The issue seems to be with playing online or logging on online. I bought the game to play it online but if you want to play it offline then log off of PS3 Online first in your XMB and then start the game.
