This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk properly.
The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.
The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one of these lasers i.e the Bluray laser has failed.
For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.
Many thanks for using FixYa.

If you have this problem it is because the laser has shifted
from where it needs to be and the good news is that it is not that hard to fix
all you need is a good repair guide.
You can of course send it in but the disc reading issue you
should be able to fix in less than 1 hour from home.
