Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi, my ps3 is playing movies fine, but when I put a ps3 game in, it will freeze within 10 minutes
It will most likely be the hard drive in your PS3 as your games most likely use the hard drive a lot - I would try if you can to take the hard drive out and try and backup the data if you can and then whilst its connected to your desktop run a check disc - you may need to purchase a new hard drive and transfer the data over.
how to replace the hard drive
As you can see plenty of guides especially on youtube for replacing the hard drive as for the recovery of the data before you wipe or erase or run a checkdisk on the hard drive you will need a data kit which you can obtain from your computer store or amazon
