EA's keystone football franchise debuts on PSP with a game designed to play along with the PS2 console version of the title. Players can sync up with their PlayStation 2 editions of Madden 06, to transfer up to a week's worth of franchise games onto the handheld. The full-featured handheld football game is designed to stand on its own as well, however, with solid Madden gameplay, new 3D graphics, and teams, rosters, and arenas based on their real-life NFL counterparts. The PSP edition of Madden 06 also offers 18 mini-games, and multiplayer matches supported through local Ad-hoc wireless connection, or against gamers across the country through a wireless Internet hookup.
Editor's Note: A problem was discovered with the PlayStation Portable version of Madden NFL 06, soon after its September 2005 release. A glitch in the game's franchise mode could cause the handheld to unexpectedly power-down. In December 2005, EA Sports announced it would replace the buggy UMD with a patched copy of the game. Gamers wishing to exchange faulty PSP copies of Madden 06 should contact EA's Customer Warranty department. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
