    I got a 60 GB PS3, and it over heated within 30 minutes, but still works ok. I start getting problems in 3 to 4 hours of play

Yeah its overheating. If its an older 60 gig model make sure to blow the dust out and put it in a more ventilated area

Your system has overheated. If it doesn't get on at all anymore, you should get it fixed in the place you bought it from. That happened to me.
