Okay, so a couple friends and I all have Borderlands 1 & 2 for the PS3, and I want to transfer some copies of my characters to their PS3. I already have a FAT32 formatted USB stick with my saves on it, etc.
The kind of thing I want to know is: can I transfer a DLC Character (i.e. Gaige or Kreig) from Borderlands 2 to their PS3 and use that character if they don't have any DLC? Can I use a non-DLC Character from either game if that character's level is above the default cap (i.e. above the default Level 51 cap)? I don't think it's very likely that I'll be able to use DLC characters, but in some cases this is possible and I haven't yet found any answers online. Both of my games are Game of the Year Edition's, with DLC stored on-disk for install, if that matters.
Also, if anyone knows, does my PS3's system need to be fully up-to-date in order for the copied saves to work? I have no internet, so my PS3 Software Version is behind theirs. Will this matter?
