Just had it happen to me for the 1st time after quitting just cause 2 at the main menu.

I googled it some, but didnt turn up anything definitive. I have the digital copy of JC 2 so I hope it doesnt get corrupted or something.

It means the system crashed, most likely due to the game having a bug that triggers when you exit the game.

It's basically your PS3 doing a forced shutdown of a program that isn't completing a function.
Like on your PC when something screws up and you have to open the task manager and force quit the program.
