    After 2 evenings and 2 trips to exchange copies of Madden 25 I sit here in the middle of a complete restore of my PS3. I found this thread and apparently it is a big issue. I will try this after my PS3 restores completely to factory default. This could be around a 7 hour process though so I will not be able to install madden 25 until tomorrow. Here is the link to the thread. You know, it is always a issue with madden every year. I am surprised the NFL keeps letting it's name be associated with EA sports year after year as they continue to drop the ball with the release of madden. or maybe I am the idiot for continuing to say the game will be complete and quality checked this year as I shell out 50.00 plus for madden.....

    I hope to be up and running tomorrow. now I am frustrated as can be at EA

    It's a shame but, this is what happens when you have a monopoly and no one to compete with...

    Have you tried deleting everything Madden from your PS3? That seems to be the fix for this.

    Online I read you need to delete all of your M25 files from the utility and then reload the game but not to download the update.
    That will only allow you to play offline though, because you need the update to play online...smh

    Its more of a issue with the update and EA servers. If im not signed in to my PSN account it doesnt freeze up, once I try to sign in to PSN it freezes.

    When I played the demo some of the wide receivers would vanish and you couldn't see them besides their circle

    I have a solution, and you DONT have to DELETE ANYTHING!



    Took me an hour to figure out- but it would seem that the problem lies when you attempt to connect with ea's servers. So this is how you get around it:



    First: when it says 'connecting to ea servers' hit 'b' and back out it. DO NOT CONNECT TO EA SERVERS AT FIRST.

    Second: when you back out, it takes you to the menu. go to 'connected franchise'

    third: go to 'continue online'.



    It will then connect you to ea's servers. yay!


    Play and have fun.



    PS. If you try to back out to the main menu, it freezes. So be sure to save. EA, will you hire me?

    True, but again I'm just a button masher. I have no idea where the circle is or what any of these darn buttons do.
