What topherous means by yelling at sony is contact customer support and request an RMA. You need to determine if you are still under warranty.
Here is your warranty information:

If it freezes then you might want to try turning it on or off and then if that doesent help go thru a series of things but first you have got to back up all of your saved files onto a usb flash drive or something after all of that is done then what you do is turn it off by the soft touch button, turn back on but hold after 5 sec you will here a single beep then after that you will hare a seires of beeps then you let it go then there will be a screen that says plug in your ps3 remote and hit the ps button, then you will come to a menue screen then all you got to do is restore your system, it should work fine if not then just yell at sony for making such a **** product =]

While playing games,I have recently been having the game freeze up.


This sounds like the laser is the culprit,clean the laser with a q tip and rubbing alcohol. Dont let the alcohol streak,test it with a ps2 game then ps3 if it works perfectly,you saved yourself some cash. If it still intermittently freezes,then the laser is very weak and about to burn out.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

Playstation 3 Stopped Playing Blu Ray Discs and Games


It's a factory defect. I've fixed over 100 PS3's with the same exact problem. Your blu-ray laser went out. You need to contact Sony or if you're in Los Angeles you can contact me. I fix the problem for $120 and within 30 minutes. Sony charges $150+ and takes God knows how long.
