I NEED HELP
Unfortunately when this occurs this is a sign of overheating. If you are able to play for a few minutes and it freezes or shuts off this mean it is overheating.
There is something you can do before getting upset. Go to your local game store and purchase a cooling unit. It is basically a fan that will prevent your system from overheating. Never leave your system on when not in use, and keep the ps3 in a well ventelated room.
If this still doesnt work you should be covered under a warranty for one year.
Call Sony immediately and if you are still covered they will replace your system or repair it free of charge. The number for Sony is usually listed on the back of your video game booklets.
I hope I was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

The eye of the ps3(the thing that reads the games and dvds) may be scratched or damaged slightly to the point where it only occasionally wont read your games so you should call customer service at sony and run this question over with them and tell them about what i said.
