I just bought call of duty three.and bought my ps3 from ebay.when i started playing in the first ten minutes it shut off.i restarted and played for about 2 to 3 hours and it did the same thing.why is it doing this?an d how can i fix it?
You and most all PS3 owners have or will experience this problem. Your Heat Transfer compound is dried up. This to me is a definite Manufacturer Defect. Contact Sony at 1800 345-7669 unless your outside North America. If you know how to get to the heat sinks, I suggest you go their and put some new high quality Heat Transfer compound between your processors and the heat sinks.

I am currently working on this problem with a PS3. Can you tell me what lead up the PS3 shutting down, did you remove a cable or anything prior to this? I see you were playing Call of duty 3. If I find the cause tonight, I may be able to fill you in on what the cause is.
