use a usb stick

go to save data utility on the ps3 menu and copy the save games over,

best to do full back up to an external hdd as it backs up everything including locked game saves that you cannot copy on to a usb stick

but you will have to re download any purchased stuff of the psn again though as that doesnt copy over.

Im sure in the new firmware there is an option to link the 2 with an ethernet cable and spool the data across. You always have the backup to flash drive option but i think that youll need a pretty large drive (possibly external HDD may be the route to go?) if you have loads of data on it.

your online cod data is saved on servers

for single player and your pes just a simple copy onto a usb stick and thats it copy onto new ps3

USB stick is gonna be the easist most probs. Only a small amount of data then i presume so not any major hastle.

I backed up one of mine the other week and it had over 100gigs worth of stuff on it. Couldnt be assed to USB stick the data across so linked the two together. Was easier for large amounts as ive only got a 16gig stick and no external hdds.

Be warned that not all savedata can be transfered to a USB external device, unless you're doing a complete backup.
