Wife got me Madden NFL 15 for Christmas.   I played several games yesterday with no problem.   Suddenly one of the games aborted to PS4 menu.   Now any time I try to resume that game, or start a new game, Madden freezes.   It doesn't freeze during their repetitive game intro sequences... just EVERY time when the control is turned over to the player to receive or kick.    BAM.   Hard lockup.  

I've tried multiple things to delete save game files, profile, etc.    I've now removed the game completely and reinstalled and I'm about to try to play again.    If it freezes again like this I'm not sure what recourse I have?   She bought a $60 game that is mechanically or fundamentally flawed from a coding standpoint?    It's legalized godd*** theft is what it is.

I'm guessing this isn't a digital download voucher, but rather a physical copy? Two lights at the end of the tunnel for you:

1. Since the Playstation is a closed platform, if you are having the problem, so are thousands of others, and it will be patched.
2. Your physical copy may be bad. Grab a new one.
3. If you don't have a ton of stuff locally on your PS4, factory reset.


Still unfortunate that EA couldn't get it right.

The install appears to be working for the moment.   We shall see.

I wonder if it is trying to do some network call and with PSN being hosed was hanging and not giving a real error.  Try disconnecting the PS4 from the network and see if it goes away.  The problem with the outage from the DDoS is things are in a partial state and certain services aren't properly recognized as unavailable.

I've had zero issues like this with Madden 15 on my XBox One, for what it's worth.
