Not been able to get either to play.
Had a look for game data and nothing is in the sub folders for either game.
Thought about looking at the restore menus but from reading about them they would wipe the whole ps3 and as some seem to be working didn't think this would help much.
one repair company i contacted for advice said it may be worth using toothpaste on the discs? not sure if this works?
Maybe trade or get rid of these games and source another copy of the same game if they're important to you.
I've been able to swap the disc for the force unleashed and still the same problem. A while back i did try to download the demo for this but when i tried to install it i got an error message saying that the download was corrupted/not there so i deleted it.
Is it possible that this has somehow affected the hard drive in relation to this game?
I had a look on the restore menu and rebuilt the database which it said was corrupted but this hasn't fixed it. Is it worth backing up game saves and doing a reformat of the hard drive?
This is a sign of it about to break. happened to me and sony sent me a refurb one which works perfectly

A little advice.
While most games & DVD's people have may have minor scratches on them, The PS3 & game manual/ guides CLEARLY state you shouldn't put ANY scratched or damaged discs in your machine.
Try to remember these discs can cost up to £50 - And as such should be looked after accordingly.
I do not own a single Game ,DVD , or Blu-ray disc with so much as a smudge on them.
They only get scratched or damaged through lack of care taken.
Perhaps check the Discs for damage 'in store' if you must buy pre-owned.
I don't know any stores that will even accept scratched Discs for trade in,
So there's no way i'd accept a Scratched Disc from them.
Just be more careful what you put in the machine & everything should be fine - barring BR lens/ drive failure.
Ive got the same problem.
Some of the games would load on the start up menu and work correctly.
Most of the others will load on the start up menu, then either it would be a black screen, or a frozen picture, or in portal 2's case a warning sign.
I bought a new ps3 and the exact same games dont load.
Must be the disks are corrupted. Maybe a virus from the playstation network.
It wouldnt be scratches cause ive borrowed games that have been scratched as ***** and still work
And definitely not the laser, thats just a con a repair company says to get you to replace it.
Lol, probably a conspiracy theory but i wouldnt be surprised if sony is behind this
