Default 2 PS3's 1 House?

Ok,

So,

I've read so many threads about this topic that I'm starting to get confused! I have a 60g fat ps3 that is home to my PSN account. I just bought my son a slim for his room. From what i've read you can add another ps3 to your account using a different screen name but you can't both be logged on both units at the same time. Makes sense... Anyway, I'd like for us both to be able to play online together so I assume I'll make a seperate account for the new slim. My question? Playing games like WAW/MW2. Is there a way to add the maps that I've purchased on the PSN to the new slim? No right? If I add the slim to my existing account we won't be able to play online at the same time right? I realize we will need to seperate discs of the same game. Just wondering if I'll have to re-buy the maps as well? Oh yeah, I'm using the same wireless router for both systems as well, but thats a whole different topic. Just looking to keep it as simple as possible?

Any tips would be great!
Thank you so much in advance!

We have 2 ps3's. Basically, you are correct about the accounts. you both cannot be logged into the same account at the same time. what you need to do is make another account of yours on the slim using the same name/password as on the fat. Make that the primary user account so you have some control over the unit. after that, make your son a secondary account on the slim. There will be two log-ins on the xmb when you start it up, so if your son is playing, he will use his..if you want to use it for some reason, you will use yours.

The reason why you want your account on his machine is because that is how you will re-download any maps or games you have bought under your name on his machine.

You simply log in under your id on his machine, go to download history and you will redownload whatever you want him to have on his machine. once you have downloaded everything you want from your account, he will have access to it regardless if he is logged in under your name or his. Long story short - his machine will have two users - your id from the fat, and his new one. you will use your id to download everything for him without having to buy it.

Also - we use wireless on both machines and play a ton of shooters against each other with no problem.

What would that be? It's a pretty standard question that pops up often.

You can have up to 3 PS3's attached to the same account, and downloads. I have two in my house, and I attached my account my sister's PS3 so she could download and play whatever songs I purchase for Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
