two PS3s, trying to copy DLC games

6 replies 310 views Edited Aug 14, 2011

I recently bought another PS3 for another room and I'm trying to copy my games so that both PS3s have the same games on the HD. I 'm having a problem with one particular game, Street Fighter 2 HD.  I can't seem to copy it onto the new PS3.  I look at my downloads and transactions list and it's missing.  Can anyone help me out?

Hi & welcome to the Playstation Online Community.

I know some games have their save data protected, hence it can't be copied & or transferred, perhaps this is one of them?

is there any way to find out if a game is copy protected?

Are you sure you're logged into the same PSN ID for both PS3s? Previously downloaded content in the Store only shows up for accounts that bought them.

yes.  Here's the thing though, I look in the PS store and you know how it indicates that you have purchased a game with the shopping bag?  it doesn't show it, nor does it show in my transaction/downloads list.  I think I'm going to call SONY tomorrow to find out what's going on

I assume that you are referring to Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix. The game is still available in the Playstation Store, so if you purchased it before, it should still be in your downloads list. How many user profiles do you have on the first PS3?  Is it possible that the game was downloaded under a different PSN account?  On a PS3, generally anyone can play any game that was downloaded to the PS3, regardless of who downloaded it.  Only the PSN account that purchased the game can download it again.  The logical explanation would be that the Street Fighter game was downloaded under a different account; but if the game still works, then the user profile for that account would have to still be on the old PS3.  If the game doesn't still work, then it could be a PSN account that was used on the PS3 earlier.
