Madden PS3 Borked From the Patch? Here’s How to Fix It


Madden fans have been complaining all around the Internet, and rightly so – apparently, the latest patch for Madden NFL 08 on PS3 completely borked the game so that it wouldn’t even so much as load. While the issue was being fixed, EA announced a temporary fix that would allow you to play offline – no online play until the issue was fixed.

A post on the official Madden forums has announced that the issue has been resolved, but if you were the victim of this patch, you’ll need to go out of your way to manually remove it.

From EA’s support page:

If you have encountered an ’80010009′ error message after downloading a Madden NFL 08 update, please perform the following steps listed below:

  1. Press the PS button on the controller and select QUIT.
  2. In the main screen of the XMB (XrossMediaBar) user interface, select Game.
  3. Highlight the Game Data Utility folder and press the X button.
  4. Highlight the Madden NFL 08 file and press the Triangle button.
  5. Delete the file.
  6. Restart the game.

This will allow you to launch and play Madden NFL 08. The next time you attempt to play online, you will be prompted to download the most recent roster update. Download the roster update and from there, you will be able to play the game without receiving the ’80010009′ error message.
