A Technical Console Question
« on: October 03, 2012, 03:15:29 PM »
Anyone know an easy way to move game saves and trophies from an account on one PS3 to the same account on another?

A USB drive? I can move saves from my PS3 to PC that way.

Yeah, but would it work for trophies as well?

Aren't trophies tied to the account? You should just have to sign in for that.

^ This. Sign in on the old PS3. Let it upload. Sign out. Sign in on other PS3. I can see my PS3 trophies on my Vita while signed into my account. It would work the same way with a second PS3.

As far as transferring game saves, you could always sign up for PS+ and use the cloud storage. Just upload any save games you want onto it then copy them to the other PS3. That's what I've been doing. If you just bought a new console there should be a free trial offer.
