he's going to need to create a new user because your psn is linked with his current one.

is there any other way? we were thinking of doing just that but then he would lose all his saved games and trophies? i can put his saved games on thumbdrive and transfer them over but he would still lose trophies.

log in to your account ( on his ps3) then go to account management, then go to account acctivation, then click games, then deactivate system. Then have him go to users and delete your account (press triangle, then select delete user)

perfect example of what to do.  But he will indeed lose any progress he's made with his user.

Hmm... I'm late.. But I have the same problem... Do you guys think I could back up all data on the ps3 and then restore the system? Have him sign up for psn, then put the game data back on from an external usb hard drive?

If you have one User/PSN ID on the system, all the gamesave data is linked to it.

You will have to create a new User/PSN ID, but all the gamesave data will not work for it.

There is no real need to Restore the system, just create a new User and attach a different PSN ID to it.  Start fresh with gamesaves.
