Transfer all PS3 info to new user and NEW PSN

1 replies 29 views Edited Dec 3, 2011

Hey guys, So, Me and my brother, had our first PS3 together, and decided to get a shared PSN.

He binged on his Call of Duty games to the point where it was pretty much his, and I was unable to do a lot of things online.

Is there anyway to transfer all my game saves, trophies and redeemed codes (exclusive DLCs) to a new PS3 user and NEW PSN.

I understand that I can use a system backup feature to transfer everything to a new PS3 with the same PSN, but can I use a different PSN?

I am also aware that some of my game saves (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood/Revelations) are copyrighted, and leave me unable to backup them or copy them. Could someone please elaborate on this?

nope, sorry. you won't be able to separate your stuff from his. if you make a new account on a new ps3, *some* of the saves might be able to be put on it from a flash drive, but most will not due to locked saves, also some saves can become squirrelly if you try to use them on a different psn handle. as far as DLC and such, on the new ps3, if you make another account with the info from the original acccount, you can then re-download that stuff from the store to use on the new ps3, but this can only be done on 2 systems for future purchases, older purchases are still ok on up to 5 systems in your house.
