There is an option for porting over to a new system, so it's not like Sony didn't know people would upgrade their PS3 at some point to a newer model or bigger hard-drive.

    And like everyone else said. Sync your trophies before you switch consoles and you won't have to worry about losing trophy data.
    Yeah, this is what I did. No problems whatsoever.

    Yeah, I'm sure it's been said already, but do 4 things:

    1. Sync your trophies with the server
    2. Back up all your game saves to the online storage cloud
    3. Back up all your game saves to a USB stick
    4. Use Backup Utility to backup your whole hard drive

    Then when you get the new one, just restore from backup and sync trophies and everything should be exactly as you left it. The game save backups are there just in case something goes horribly wrong.
    Hey. Hey. Look. Look at me. I'm playing video games.

    My PS3 is nearing its end, I can tell from the fact its taking a long time to get starting and getting on to games can take about 5 minutes if not more. You got a pretty good deal on that bundle, I would have to buy a 160GB to get the same price as that.

    I have used the data transfer utility. It really is the best way to transfer from your old system to a new system. There are a couple of things that you need to do beforehand, but they are simple things. You can find directions on the Playstation site.

    This is preferred method because it will basically clone your new system based off of the old system. Even all of your downloads will transfer which in my case saved a ton of time. The only other way you can save copyrighted game save files is through PS+ online storage.

    If your old system is still working and you can afford a new one, now would be the time to take advantage of this feature.

    I'm not really sure I want to. A lot of them took a very long time to get.
    All of your trophy data is stored on PSN, so you dont have to worry about losing it.

    If you have some extra cash you should have a local repair shop do a reflow of the mobo...can easily get it done for under a hundred bucks....and after you get your data you can sell your old system on Craigs List...and if it is BC you can still get close to 200 for it.

    If you use a usb, you might want to look at this

    Folder structure • PS3 Explained

    Folder structure

    Reference for the folder structure used on a removable USB storage device (flash drive, external hard-drive). The correct structure is essential when copying certain files to the PS3.
