My ps3 is acting weird on me everytime i play nba 2k12 after 15 minutes the 2k music stops playing and all logos or players faces is blank then so i eject the disk and it takes 3 minutes to eject the blue light keeps blinking then i put it back in and it either say disc rading error or it will freeze at the introduction part and i keep turning it off and try it over again same thing happens. so i give it 30 minute break and it works for 15 minutes then freezes again. Same for MW3 it freezes when i try joining a game but difference is i only get 5 minutes and then it freezes. So yeah i need some help because i dont know if its the game or the system. And can i get a cheaper cost of the game or the ps3 instead of paying $300 for a new one.

It sounds like the PS3 BluRay drive is on its way out. Check the discs are nice and clean first to be sure. After that you can try troubleshooting if it isn't that.
Try working your way through the safe mode menus and see if they resolve it. You can get a comprehensive breakdown of safe mode, and what each option does here. The recommendation is to start at the top and work your way down. You might want to take a backup of the data on the PS3 though as some options can delete it.
If this doesn't work and the PS3 is under a year old, you can get a free replacement from Sony by calling them up. As you're using dollars I'll assume you're in the US.
Their number is: 800-345-SONY (7669)
