Moving downloaded games from an old PS3 to a new console.


Novice Member
Hi there

I've just gotten myself a new 320gb PS3 to replace my old one.

Can I delete the downloaded game Infamous ( one of the free PSN give way games ) from the old PS3 then download it again once I sign into my PSN account on the new 320gb PS3?

I am intending to use the “Data Transfer Utility” to transfer the all my game saves and any other data but I thought trying to transfer a 8gb game like Infamous may take an eternity move over.

Yes, just go into your download history (in the PSN store & in "My Account") once you've added your PSN account onto your new PS3.
You'll be able to redownload any game/demo etc that you've ever downloaded from the store.

Remember to deactivate your old PS3 if you're getting rid of it, so you don't waste one of your activations.

You can also deactivate directly from your old console.
Login to PSN, then go into "My Account"- will be able to deactivate from there as well.
