NFL Blitz Issues?

15 replies 1400 views Edited Oct 2, 2012

Hey folks,

 

I've heard from the PS Blog that people are having troubles with NFL Blitz. If you could please use this thread to tell us the following information, that'd be super helpful! We're not sure what might be causing this, so need some specifics to help narrow it down.

 

1) What's your PS3 model? 

2) What's your harddrive size? Custom or stock hard drive?

2) Network connection (wireless? wired?)

3) What are the issues you're having? Are you stuck on a loading screen? In a menu? Etc.

 

Any pictures would be super helpful!

I'm not posting through personal experience cheshire, but because I use the Forums a lot I see a lot of posts, the majority appear to be having an issue as soon as the game loads up & you hear the "EA Sports, it's in the game", then nothing else but a freeze.

1) PS-Slim 320GB Move bundle.... CECH-2501b

2) 320GB stock hdd

3) Wired network via Netgear Rangemax WPN824 v3 router

4) The game freezes on the NFL Blitz title screen, but only when signed into PSN.

After boot the EA splashscreen plays fine but the NFL Blitz title/load screen freezes. If I'm not signed into PSN then it loads fine and I can play, but if I am signed in it freezes at the mentioned screen every time. Also, when I press the PS button the edges of the screen get flicker when the XMB is displayed. And one last thing that may help is just as the game initially boots there is a loud crackle that comes through the surround-sound. I deleted the game and redownloaded it 3 times but got the exact same result each time. I'm 100% sure it has something to do with being signed into PSN.

Below is a pic of the screen it freezes on. I tried to take a picture of the screen flickering too but the camera doesn't capture it.

Hey everyone, so we're looking into fixing this, but in the meantime here's a workaround (which some of you have already suggested).

Go to Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection > Disable and play offline.

We're still hunting down the cause of this, so no ETA on a fix yet.

Was having this same issue on my 160GB Slim (with third party 320GB HDD installed).  Freezes at the title screen.  Nice to see a temporary workaround, so I'll try that out.  Thanks!
