Hey guys I have some questions. My fiance and I have broke up. I got the new PS3 and he kept the old one. I would like to take his saved files off of the new PS3 and give him to him. I hear this can not be done unless you have both PS3's hooked up together. I plan on never seeing his face again so that makes this alittle tough. Is there anyother options? Please help!

If they aren't copy protected you can do it with a USB stick and mail them to him. If they are copy protected you could do it with a Plus account using the cloud but he'd have to have Plus and you'd have to know his log in information. In either case the saves can only be used on the account that created them.

Hooking both systems together is probably not what you want to do. Besides having to see his face again, the transfer process moves the data, meaning it deletes things during the transfer process (wipes the receiving system and deletes data from the transferring system).
Your options are pretty much what ne1atall said. If he has PS+ then his saves should be on the cloud. If he doesn't then you might have to communicate with him to get him to enable PS+ and give you his login. If you use a USB drive you will likely find many of the saves are copy prohibited.
Unless... your system is set to auto-login on his account (or you know his login). Then you might be able to enable the free PS+ trial on his account, upload his saves to the cloud and shoot him a message or email to tell him that (after which you'll never have to communicate with him again).
Good luck, and sorry for your situation. It must be rough when a relationship makes it all the way to the fiance stage and then crashes. I hope you are doing okay and things get better for you quickly.
