Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

MGS4 crashed my ps3

Before i got MGS4 my ps3 was perfect. I have the 60 gig model. After 2 hours of MGS4 i get a picture of a CD with a question mark on it in the upper left hand corner and the game freezes. I reset it a bunch of times hoping to fix the problem, nothing! Called SCEA for support, they told me to reset all ps3 settings. I did and everything worked fine again for 3 hours and MGS4 crashed again. Now no PS3 game works for more then 15 minutes. No blue ray disc plays at all. Ps2/Ps1 games and regular DVD's + psn content off the HDD works fine. Any one else experience this? how is this fixed? Is my blue ray drive out of whack? WTF?! Please help.
p.s.
not overheating. No dust. Perfect ventilation. No scratches on any disc. no ps3 mods

Itmay be because its such a large game, the files took nearly 2 hours for me to download off of the disk so i had barely any playing time before it crashed!

Hello. Freezing is ALWAYS one of 2 problems. Heat or a jammed platter in the hard drive. Always try the solution for heat first as it is the most common.

HEAT: Get a can of compressed air and blow out your system from the front and sides. Most of the dust should come out of the back. This is a VERY common problem and this is the easiest solution.

IF SOLUTION ABOVE DOESN"T WORK, TRY SOLUTION BELOW!

Hard Drive: Get a different hard drive, instasll it into the PS3 and test it. They only cost $30-$150 for up to 120GB if you wanted to upgrade.

I hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

As far as i know if it is a 20 or 60 gig it is just playstation 20 or 60 gigabites. I have heard that the 40 and 80 gig models have been refered to as 2.0. So it would be playststion 3  80 2.0
