Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

 

You're referring to the online pass correct?

 

I'm a little confused by the wording of your question, but the online pass isn't for a particular save it's for the whole game & is tied to the account that activated it, so basically no, so long as you use the same account no you will not have to purchase another online pass.

The code is tied to whatever username you register it under, it's not tied to the save file. I think i'm right on this, if not someone let me know.

Of course you'll be able to get online. Just redownload the online access pass, it should be under your Download List in the Playstation Store or under the Download List under Account Management. Good luck.

As long as you entered the code under the id your using you should always be able to play that game online. If you change id's and try to play the game online it will ask you to purchase an online pass.

If you're no longer using your old PS3 be sure to deactivate it from your account. Purchased content can only be downloaded on up to 2 activated PS3 systems. You now have 2, so you have nomore available downloads for any of the purchased content you have on both consoles. To free it up for the future you deactivate the PS3 you no longer use. If you do plan on using them both just disregard this reply.
