Do you lose your purchases, saved game data, trophies, and friends when you reset your PS3?

You lose everything that you have downloaded and all of your saved game data will be erased. Friends and purchase content from the PlayStation Store will be un tounched. But if you are going along with restoring your system make sure to deactivate your account first.

Friends, Trophies, and Purchase are saved on your psn account. Just back up your gamesaves before you restore. you'll just have to re download any digital purchases.

If you got your game saves saved via cloud then you should be good.

Go to the store on the console or web and just redownload them from your download list.
