    Cousin has a PS3 phat which seems to be dying i.e. very loud noises. Now they bought a PS3 slim.

    The PS3 phat has a dlc SSF4 AE 2012 which was downloaded from another friend who is now not available to give his PS3 account to redownload it.

    Now is there a way for him to redownload on his PS3 account since it was saved in his account at one point?

    If not is there a way to transfer the dlc across to the slim?

    Thanks

    you need the account the BOUGHT the item linked(activated and on the ps3) to the ps3 that is going to use the DLC
    so if you DO NOT have the account info then you can't get the DLC

    So if I transfer it, it still needs the other account?

    the backup & restore method won't work, not entirely sure if the ethernet transfer method will work, but you could try it anyway.

    but yeah, doesn't seem likely that you'll keep the DLC.
