Is it the same on PS3?

Oh sorry, I've only ever messed with it on the 360.

I tried this on my PS3 and I recieved the error message. "The file was created by another user and can not be loaded." Does anyone know how we can share a franchise file between two users?

1) Both create a XBOX account of the SAME name. We both created one just called Madden. This account was to just be used for our Madden franchise.

2) Create the franchise. You should do it under you normal account because you'll have your settings, sliders and current roster you want to use.

3) Once franchise is created and open, save it to your HD like normal.

4) Then, log out of your XBOX account and sign back in under your new Madden account. Save it again. You can either save it straight to your memory card/flash drive or save it to your HD and copy it over from there afterwards.

New user with the memory card/flash drive:

1) Insert memory card into XBOX

2) Log into Madden XBOX account and start up Madden.

3) Go into File Management or whatever and load the franchise file.

4) Once franchise is open, log out of Madden account and sign back into your normal XBOX account. I would recommend saving it to your HD from there for your own copy.

Just rinse and repeat back and forth. We've had to do this for three years now.

Just wish we could figure out how to email the files instead now.

Seriously, does that method really work? Because if it does, you sir have single-handedly made me very excited for Madden 12 (out tomorrow for us limeys). I've always wanted to do a good two-player franchise with my friend, and now I can. Genuinely, thanks very very much

I guess its impossible to do a multiplayer franchise from two consoles if you have a Playstation 3. What a terrible design, preventing like minded individuals from sharing in their Madden experience. This is not a single year oversight either. It has been this way since Madden 10. I hope there is a work around, but I have not found one...

If anyone has some insight, please share.

Re: Offline Multiplayer Franchise Question

Could you not do the same on PS3 as these guys did on Xbox? Just make a PSN account that you guys share just for Madden. Unless by User they mean the actual PS3 itself.

I can't figure out how to move an account from one playstation to the other though. With xbox, you can copy it to your mem. card or recover via xbox live. I'll test more tonight.

Also, we've already started a franchise and because we started with my profile, we can't save it to the new profile. Hopefully there is some work around, but I haven't found anything. The crazy thing is that you can save roster files and load them with any profile, this is isolated to just franchise, it seems.
