    I had the same prob, a few months ago. All my games, and the internet did it.
    Try this- take a vacuum hose, slowly, but on high, suck out all the vents all the way around the ps3. this will clean out all built up dust inside, which is prolly overheating your ps3. That is exactly what happened to mine, I spent five minutes sucking it out, and it worked like a charm. Now I do it once every two weeks (my ps3 is ALWAYS on). Learned that trick from computers, they overheat and freeze, suck the dirt out.

    This happened with me and GTA IV, and what i had to do was Disable my Internet Connection. So i did that, restarted, and everything was fine. Then i re-enabled it right after i was done playing and re-started it again and had no problems since.
