Last week we received word that Madden NFL 06's Franchise mode was causing a number of PSPs to crash. Late last night, an EA forum moderator posted a "Work Around" for this glaring flaw. Unfortunately, since no mention was made of a re-release, downloadable patch, or refund opportunity, we're left to believe that this is EA's permanent solution. In addition, EA claims that after a thorough investigation, they have determined that the shutdown-issue "isn't a widespread problem." What they're sayin' is, if you're unfortunate enough to be one of the few gamers affected by this issue then just "work" with it.
