MY HUSBAND BOUGHT THE PS3 LIKE IN DEC.
YESTERDAY HE PLAYED IT FOR ABOUT AN HOUR OR SO
THEN THE GAME JUST STOPED AND WOULD NOT LOAD ANYTHING SNICE. WHAT THE ***** IS UP WITH SONY THIS IS JUST CRAZY. THIS SYSTEMS COSTS JUST TOO MUCH MONEY FOR THESE KIND OF PROBLEMS. WE HAVE HAD OUR PS2 FOR LIKE 5 YEARS AND IT STILL WORKS...
The same problem happened to me yesterday, i was playing GTA IV then it suddenly stopped reading, and now i have a real hard time making one ps3 game work...the ps2 and psONE games work fine, but the ps3 ones dont load or take real hard work to make them load.

Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.
If all of your other games are working then it's probably just a software update for that game. If you are hooked up to the internet via your PS3 it should download the update automatically, but it may not do it unless the game is in the machine. Make sure that your interent connection is good to the PS3, slide the game in and leave it for a while. Maybe a couple of hours and then reset and try game again. Depending on your connection updates could take anywhere from 10mins to over an hour. Sometimes the server will time out too if the update it taking too long. Also, change your PS3 auto start game setting to off, once you do this you will have to slect the game from your PS3 menu to access it and play it. If you have a friend with a PS3 or go the store where you bought it and see if they have the same problem with the game, it could just be bad batch of discs. In that case buy it at another store.
