Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
K well i have a ps3 and it reads dvd's and everything works but it doesn't read games
Your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

Try this method... worked for my PS3 that's also having problem reading a game disc.
1. Switch on PS3 and insert game disc. Whichever you are planning to get.
2. With disc inside drive. Load up a game demo that you can get from PSN Store or maybe just go into Playstation Home.
3. Once you are in the demo or Playstation Home. Press the PS Button on your controller and scroll to the game section on your XMB bar... the disc icon for the game will probably appear.
4. Press "X" or "O" on your controller ,depending which PS3 you buy, when you highlight the game icon and start the game.
It may sound troublesome but if you don't wanna spend hundreds fixing the PS3 this will solve your problem....for now. So I don't think it's a lense problem since the game can still be read... I think Sony did something with their firmware to screw up the PS3.
My PS3 started showing that problem right after my PS3 Warranty Ended. A little suspicious as to what Sony is doing because it happened to my PS2 Phat as well.
