Sure the PS3 has a large open space that allows good air circulation, and you could also buy a Nyko inter-cooler for the system. It also helps to keep the room cool because the PS3 does throw out some heat.

I was playing my ps3 and it froze . i turned it off and i let it sit for a few hours and when i tried to turn it back on it wont turn on.

I can't know for sure, but it sounds like your system may have overheated. There could be some very big issues, or some very small ones, depending on the situation. I would suggest checking out youtube for (Overheating PS3) or PS3 (YLOD) Good luck.
