Warning to other PS3 and MGS4 owners!!

I bought my ps3 last october and it worked perfectly well with all my other games then i bought mgs4 on the launch date. The game worked brilliantly and its an awesome game too but recently it started freezing then soon it came up with the no disc symbol (disc with a question mark.)

I've taken care of my mgs4 disc and it has no scratches on it and now the ps3 won't even recognise it let alone play it.

I tried my other games and now the ps3 doesn't even recognise them as well and none of my blue ray movies play either. I don't know what to do, my ps3 is completely f*cked!!

Luckily my guarantee hasn't expired yet but i as wondering if this has happened to anyone else? and what can i do to fix the problem?

*edit*

yeh i returned my 60 gig ps3 because i had warranty and they replaced it and gave my a new 80 gig one instead so i'm happy

Sorry to hear that, All I can say is that you were one of the unlucky few that have had problems with their PS3. I don't think the game broke it, but maybe too much dust got into it so it broke it. Well you know what to do call sony and ask for a repair.......................I haven't had any problems since I bought my Ps3 last year and my warranty expires in a couple of weeks so I guess you're better of getting it fixed before your warraty expires..

Still I don't think is the game that broke it when I got Assassin's creed for the 360, my xbox broke down It stopped reading all my other games so when I sent if for repairs I got a letter saying that It was something about the laser beign burnt and the accumulation of dust or something, so I think it might be the same for your PS3.

well it happens you know, da ps3 is gunna brake sum day, mines might brake in like 3 or 4 years but who knows right?

no.1 by a fan system because it may have overheated, no.2 keep it away from boxed in area's because that'd make the console prone to heat conduction, and finally no.3 make sure you contact ps3, as they could give you a. a new console or b. money back.

Looks like gaming companies theese days care more about the graphics than the actual console the consoles easily get very heated(or so I've been told) and need cooling systems but it is highly reccomended to clean the systems and maintain them safe from Insects,Mice and other small living creater that a curious.Its probably the disc reader make sure it moves glass isn't broke and doesn't get hot easily.
