Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 60G will play games until i start playing call of duty 4 then it shuts off standby light and all, i have to flick the main power switch to make it come back on and sometimes the thing just shuts off regardless of what im doing. could this be a fan problem or what?
I restarted my ps3 because I couldn't connect with a friend online in CoD4. It wouldn't turn back on! I'm getting it replaced. Also I had the 2.40 firmware wich was yanked because it was messing up PS3s. I don't know what killed it though. Just get it replaced by sony. Assuming it is under waranty it is free, and quick.

Sounds like it's overheating. 1st person shooters take a lot of processing speed and will overtax your unit if you don't have adequate ventilation. Be sure you have the unit standing on it's side, flat down is not good unless you have some standoff room underneath by propping it up, making sure you don't cover the vents. If it continues, you can buy something like this
