    OK is there a simple way to make my legit PSN bought PS3 games into a format I can load with Webman in order to transfer them to another PS3?

    Reason being I have a Slim with a hard drive full of bought games I want to transfer to my new reballed BC system BUT I want to keep them on the Slim too in case something happens to the BC console. Don't fancy downloading all the games + updates from PSN again either

    Or if there is any other way of copying the games over without losing them on the Slim then any suggestions welcome

    You can use PSN dl to download them and put them on there

    It does seem to be missing some game I could never find the sonic the fighters he remake on there

    Actually I couldn't find game anywhere but on suspicious Spanish websites and only the European version

    Ok thanks. After doing all the research not coming up with anything and creating this thread I am starting to think it might be easiest. The thought of installing and updating GT6 all over again makes me shudder though :blink: literally took days to finish it last time because there are around 20-25 updates all of which have to be install twice (once through the XMB and once in game) and the game takes a shit if you try to do more than 3 at once lol. It's a nightmare

    I'm pretty sure all my games are still on there as I redownloaded them all when I downgraded my Slim a few weeks ago so that's one thing :)

    Yeah I think that's the only way also if you ever find a us pkg of the sonic the fighters hd remake tell me because I honestly don't even know if its online at this point

    Yup, apparently PSN Liberator is another way but I can't get it to work, it won't seem to download the files it needs to work

    That's on the UK PS store perhaps you could make a UK account and play it? It costs £3.69 which is about $5 or less

    I could buy it us but I don't know how risky that is for a custom firmware ps3 I don't if that could get it banned

    Oh ok I couldn't find it on the US store thought that was what you meant. If you use PSNpatch I've used that loads of times to get stuff off PSN and it's been fine so if you maybe buy the game on the website on your PC/phone or whatever, use PSNpatch, sign in on the PS3 and just get it from "downloads" rather than using the store on the PS3 you only need to be signed in for a couple of minutes so it should be fine

    Hmm not sure about that then is it one that comes with a .rap file? If it's a crack file that's you have to run that sounds a bit fishy to me

    One is labeled sonic the fighters install.pkg and the other is sonic the fighters crack.pkg and it says it was made by the guys who crack everything duplex If I remember right

    I think I have heard of that before have you tried installing it? The main game pkg then the crack

    No I'm gonna try using reactpsn or psnpatch on the install I don't trust the crack esspessially for online play
