Can you transfer PSN purchases from one PS3 to another?

Is it very difficult and do you need both PS3's active to be able to do it?

If mine breaks could I buy a new one and transfer my purchases?

PSN purchases are tied to your account not the console, so you can always re-download them even to a new console provided you use the same account.

However I believe there is a limited number of consoles that can be "activated" for your account. I think it's three. Used to, you could only do this through the system, but I hear now you can do it online. I need to do that myself, my YLOD ps3 is still registered as my main PS3.

Yes, you can do it online, but there are some rules:
1. You can do it once per 6 months
2. You can do it only to ALL consoles registered with your PSN account, individual systems has to be de-activated manually via he XMB.

The webpage you can do it is in following link: https://account.sonyentertainmentnetwork.com/

Ah, in that case I have a question. Once deactivated, is it a simple step to reactivate my only current ps3? I mean, will I have to redownload everything or will I just reactivate and then be able to play again?
