No. Purchasing a PSN game inextricably ties it to the account on which it was purchased. You can, however, leave that user on the PS3, still linked to that online account, and any other local users on that PS3 (whether linked to a PSN account or not) will still be able to play that game and have their own separate saves and trophies. But if you do this, ...

Unfortunately, unless you can contact the person you sold that PS3 to AND they still have it, there most likely isn't any way to recover this account. The question you should ask yourself though: is there anything on my account worth attempting to recover? You didn't buy any digital games, you most likely never added any Playstation balance, and any ...

You'll need to put your old PC internal drive in a usb drive enclosure then possibly re-partition and format it as FAT32. You can then plug it into the PS3 and backup from the internal drive to your new external drive. Since the backup/restore function is part of the PS3 software you have to boot it from the internal drive first. Assuming your old PC drive ...

As long as you don't block the ventilation, there is virtually no difference with putting the consoles on another surface. The ventilation of the PlayStation 4 is situated here: The ventilation of the PS3 Slim can be found here: on the front side, under the recessed lip, is a vent that runs across the whole front on the system. On the sides is a ...

You can safely put them on top of each others as long as the back of them is free of any obstacles for proper air circulation. Both consoles have their primary air outlets on the back, so it's safe to stack them as long as you don't put too much extra weight on them. I've stacked three consoles with no issues for several years now. Just make sure there is ...

No, unfortunately saves are formatted for the console on which they are created. Microsoft and Sony use completely different formats. It is not possible to move a save between console lines.

The 3 beeps on start up means that the PS3 has overheated and unseated either to CPU or GPU. You can confirm this by watching for yellow lights flashing when it starts up. This fault is commonly known as the yellow light of death. It is likely that the PS3 will eventually stop working altogether. To solve this, you can attempt to replace the thermal paste ...

Creating a PSN account will not make you lose any data. I'm unaware of any way on the PS3 to store data online, but unless if you upload it somewhere all of your data is kept on the system (or any drive you attach to it if applicable), which means that 1: Any save data associated with that user will still be saved unto the console, and will not be ...

This is a known bug: If any mask is given to any follower, over time it may disappear from their inventory. So, as you stated, your options are limited to continuing from an earlier save point, or start over. The good news is, this is not plot essential; it is only required in order to gain the Konahrik mask, so you can continue on with the game.

It's the Manufacturing Code: Printed on the discs or packaging of Sony DADC-manufactured CDs are codes indicating master copies (matrix numbers) of discs. These codes begin with a 4-letter prefix followed by a series of digits. In your case: BPDL - PlayStation 3 Blu-ray Disc Dual-layer titles As I cannot find any other information, I'm guessing ...

There is a way to remove a user from a PS3 console, but you will lose the following: Paid Content Downloaded from PlayStation Network The account that bought the content can still download it from another console Your console however, will be unable to use the content ...

You most likely have the YLOD (yellow light of death) it happens sometimes after a software update or some other malfunction with the system. In this case sometimes a reflow or a reball of the system might work. But as it stands it might be more worth it to just buy another system. At my repair shop we get many of these PS3's going bad either due to age or ...

You have to start up a custom match from the zombies menu, you are still able to invite your friends if you like, but from there after you chose a map you are able to pick a starting round and enable hellhounds. This can be chosen for both local and multiplayer games. This guide can help you decide how and what to choose. Look for the "Custom" option at ...

The Yellow Light of Death is used by the PS3 to indicate a hardware failure with the console's motherboard or power supply. Unfortunately, without repair, this PS3 won't turn on again, and repairing a PS3 is so time-consuming that it's not worth it; purchasing a new one is far easier (and probably cheaper).

You most likely need to replace the blu-ray lens laser in your PS3. If it's reading DVD's and regular CD's fine, but it only affects bluray games and movies. It's the laser. The PS3 is a 10+ year old system and many of them go bad due to use. I've fixed a bunch of these at my repair shop before and what happens is the blue light on the lens just doesn't ...

I am using ScpToolkit just fine. Sometimes it has a few hickups when the controller disconnects from the PC, but besides that, everything is fine. This video seems to include everything needed for the setup

See if you can goto the recovery menu. Hold down the PS3 power button until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then let it go. Then goto system reformat and go through that process. If that doesn't work. Pop in another Hard drive and then boot up again and it will ask you to reinstall. If that doesn't work, you have a bricked system which does happen after a PS3 ...

Also, typing in either "DOA" or "3ARC UNLOCK" on the Computer Console would unlock the map "Dead Ops Arcade". More maps may be ...

It is possible to perfectly emulate the PS3 on your PC, with superior 4k 60fps graphics. MGS4 recently was made compatible for the PS3 emulator, and you can play your own legally paid for copy on your PC. I finished the entire play through on my PC without having to purchase an inferior outdated console. If you have a modern system, use that instead.
