You can download nearly everything from the PSN store up to 5 times... that means, on up-to five consoles. You just need to sign in on your new Slim and go to the store, and view your download history. You can re-download them from there.

There are a couple of exceptions, like Warhawk, and a few others.

You can tranfers most of your saves too by way of a memory card / stick... not all, though, but some :)
Yep as above said, and also remember to go to then and turn it to [activation off] - then backup your game saves etc you want to keep too, to a flash drive or whatever.
Then go to
to make the console "as new" again, apart from firmware updates of course, you can't get rid of them.
Then when you get your new console, just set it up with the same playstation identity that you used before and then you should be able to download all your previous stuff you bought from PS store... anyway, hope that helps
game was offering trade in prices for the old ps3 have you looked into this ? (not answering your question but giving something to think about)
