My PS3 will not play games, only movies.

Short answer its a ..... to fix. Theres multiple lasers in the disc drive that actually read the disc. The blue laser failed. Replacing the drive wont work unless you can reprogram the eeprom chip (or is it nand?) At any rate its just better to upgrade to a new console.

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.

I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.

If it only happens to those disks (newer ones) your console may just need to be upgraded. Send it to nintendo and they should do the service for free.
