Madden 13 PS3 Issues
John Madden; his latest game is causing a stir amongst PS3 owners
Yesterday, my letterbox rattled with a new arrival. Madden NFL 13. Although I haven’t played the game massively in the past two days, I have encountered the same problem every time I have played the game. After every time I play the game, the console won’t quit properly or shut down properly. Next time I fire it up, there is a message saying that the PS3 was improperly shut down, asks if I would like to inform Sony and that the system storage may be corrupted. My PS3 is a 2 month old, 320GB model and has an upgraded HDD, so this shouldn’t be happening. While some people may not be bothered by a message like this, for a lot of people, the thought of potentially losing everything on their hard drive is not a nice one. For anyone who has encountered this problem, there is a simple solution:
When ready to quit the game, bring up the XMB.
Move across to PlayStation Network then go to Account management.
Press Triangle and sign out.
Either quit game or turn off your PS3.
This solution sounds stupid, but has thoroughly been tested by myself, personally, and has a 100% success rate, without the threat of a hard drive meltdown.
