To make it short.

- PS3 works
- Plays DVDs
- Game --- > Disc Symbol gone
- Doesn't play Blurays/ PS3 games at all (I tried tons of times)
- spins disc (symbol (top right) but then just stops after making a CLACK noise.

I just need to confirm: I need to get a new PS3 or bluray drive right?
Reparing or letting someone replace it would cost me 140 Euros, and I can get a brand new one for 200-250 Euros with a new game and controller...

This will be my 3rd PS3....arghhh

I've never had this issue with my PS3, but I remember it happening with my Xbox 360. It would spin and then make a clack noise, then nothing. All I did was take apart the drive, wipe it with alcohol and a q tip, and it worked perfectly when I put it back together. I'm not sure how savvy you are with that sort of thing, but you could give that a try.
