Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your new PS3. In regards to the PS3 locking up after a few hours of play this sounds like the system is getting hot. You need to look at where you have your system. A lot of the entertainment centers out there do not provide enough air flow to make sure the system will stay cool. So even though you may have a cooling kick connected to the system it still could be getting hot. So if you have an in closed entertainment center you might what to look at setting on the top to get better air flow. Also carpet is bad too. Now if this your only place to put it you will want to go to your local hardware store and get a wool shelf piece to put the system on. Note if you need to cut down they can normally do this. Also note if you still have trouble you may have already caused damage to the system(also it is possble that you got a bad unit but you will still want to make sure you have a setup to make sure the unit gets properly cooled). So after you get your setup adjusted you may need to get the system exchanged or sent in to Sony for repair.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions on this.
