That is the common "dirty disc" error. If it happens with every game, it more than likely means that your Blu-Ray diode is dirty. Do you have the PS3 in a dusty environment? Be sure to clean the vents on the side, above the USB ports and on the back of the PS3 on a daily basis. A quick swipe of a soft cloth will do.
You can try several solutions for your problem, the most common to buy a can of air and blow it inside the disc drive in hopes of cleaning the diode. You can also try a CD/DVD cleaning disc.
If it happens with every disc this could also mean a dreaded Blu-Ray drive failure, or in your case, one that is in the process of failing.
If cleaning it does not work, I highly recommend you give Sony support a ring.

Sounds like a problem with your blu-ray drive.
Try playing a blu-ray movie and a dvd.
Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

This error code means disk unreadable, clean up the disk, try also to avoid scratching the disk and to touch the disk with your fingers.
Hold the eject button for a few seconds till you hear a loud sound, this
does clean the blu-ray drive.
