The graphics on black ops are to complex for our old out of date systems and it cause the ps3 to overheat and shut down

I feel like my problem is related to this.   Although I haven't experienced it just shutting off in session.  My problem is turning the unit on.  It usually takes me a few times to get it powered up.   I hit the power button and it blinks red light and shuts off. It does it a couple of times.  I usually hit the switch on the back of the unit then try again and it powers up.   It may do this while playing a game.  I just haven't played any games in a while.  Black Ops is on the way though.  I hope there is a fix to thisj.

my new ps3 bought thanksgiving is randomly shutting off when Gran Turismo 5 b spec is running. It's happened twice, but I haven't been in the room either time. Guess those 24 hour races are never going to get done. It's not even two months old. It was a Xmas present from my brother since my first fat PS3 is dead and gone.

 

Sony is having such a hard time competing because they can no longer put out a quality product. I have a fat PS2 from 2001, have never had more than a small mechanical problem with it. (the tray mechanism needed greased after 7 years). Since then, all their consoles have been buggy.

160GB-PS3 Metal Gear Solid Edition(1st Generation Unit):

 

I've been playing with no issues until tonight! I have been playing the same two games, switching back & forth between them. The 2 games are the Playstation Sports blu-ray game which was included in a Playstation Move Bundle I bought a year ago.  The other game I play is The Need for Speed-Most Wanted game which is a game I purchased online, which could only be saved to my HD.

BOTH GAMES have been played almost non-stop & NEVER HAVING AN ISSUE UNTIL TONIGHT!

 

After a two week layoff from gaming, I powered up my PS3 as usual & played PS3 Move Sports for about 30 minutes no problemo!  I shut down the unit before going to store & when I got home an hour later I turned the PS3 and almost immediately, the unit gave me 3 fast audible beeps before shutting down, then shows a red flashing indicator?!?!  Support manual says the unit is overheated but I KNOW OVERHEATING is not the problem; as I just POWERED the unit "ON"!

I have auto updates set to "On" (Playstation Plus Feature)-DOES ANYONE have Playstation Plus w/Auto Updates set "ON"?  If so, has there been any recent updates to the system software/firmware etc.....?????

Thanks in advance for your help, I NEED IT!

THIS F'n BLOWS!!!!!
