1. If your games aren't copy writed, you can do that, but you would have to do something that I don't know. I suggest researching that question.

2. Although you won't be able to delete your old PSN account, you can re-download games, but not movies.

3. As long as you keep your old account, you can keep all your trophies and everything just remember to sign in as your old account.

4. I don't know whether the slim is the only model out right now.

whats up with that? is your ps3 a new slim or older one ? mine was a 80g 21/2 yrs old. and it wasnt even hot so it couldnt 've overheated. some say its coincidental but idk about that. im convinced black ops has got issues that breaks the units. im buying a new slim but im worried that the same thing will happen. suggestions?

Even though it doesn't get hot, it can still overheat since the glue or something needs to be changed out. Sony really created a good system with a bad tendency to overheat. I hear that people change out the thermal glue every now and then. Anyways, I would suggest you get your PS3 fixed instead of buying a new one. Try a non-Sony repair service like Gophermods.

Mine has frozen on Black Ops a total of 4 times. But, when it froze today, it no longer allowed me to turn it on.... most of you seem to have said that it's a repeated thing, which means your PS3 eventually recovered. Did anyone's system just completely die after the Black Ops freeze?

For a company that spent so much time and energy exhorting the virtues of a free online service, to charge for marginally useful access and other nebulous online things, this is just another slap in the face of PS3 owners who were previously told that rumble is last gen, backwards compatibility is great and the versatility of their system in allowing other operating systems to be used on their hardware was a great feature.
