It's a GPU problem. Are you comfortable opening up your PS3 or would you rather pay $150 through Sony?

Let me know.

In the meantime you can check out my PS3 blog for some tips, warnings, etc.

When you go to the main menu to start a game, the console will freeze. But the game can be played if you first turn on the console and then insert the game so that the game auto plays. Also, if the game...


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

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.
