Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Base from the description of your problem this can be an issue with the overheating of the unit, if this problem happen even when you're not playing or playing the possibilities of overheating is high.
Because if the shut off only happen when you play games on your PS3 what you can do here to correct the problem is to do a software update on it, but if the shut off also happen when not playing games the system is overheating and the fan on it may not be working fine and needs replacement.
So if the PS3 is still under warranty better take it to service center near you and have the fan replace or better yet have the unit replace.
