  • tested on cfw 4.53 habib

Thanks: Habib, Estwald, Rancid-o, Aldo Vargas, Pullecalo (designer)

Gamesonic Fan Control Utility v1.0

Hi all, after yesterday's release of gamesonic manager, today my first release. The name is Gamesonic fan control utility. I am not a copy and paste of the projects but 100% tested and improved for all PS3 consoles.


  • full compatibility with both fat and slim console
  • fixed payload mode
  • fixed bugs that led consoles with cfw cobra in recovery mode
  • full compatibility with all cfw

Tested on CFW 4.53 Habib v 1.01, 4.46 Cobra / Rogero. Thank you: Habib, Estwald, Pullecalo, Orion and Rancid-o.

Gamesonic Manger v 1.25

Hi guys, here I am again with a new relase of gamesonic manager this time in version 1.25. this new version is definitely the best I've ever developed from all aspects.


  • Fixed support for CFW DEX and 4.46 4.41.
  • Added a tools to create and extract the ISO.
  • In Archive Manager now supports all ISO (FAT32/NTFS/EXTx) and finds all extensions mkv, avi, mp4, ogm, mpg and media files to make them start with "Showtime".
  • Adding an exception in archive management to detect if an ISO is launched from a folder "BDISO", and if it is started by a "folder" is taken as BDISO Bluray Video.
  • Fixed several bugs like filenames too long in Archive Manager and have added other small details and optimizations for example (now if it detects a device with NTFS partitions/EXTx the icon changes color throughout the waiting time prior to installation).
  • Increased speed and stability of the manager.
  • In cobra cfw just get discless patched files and install the game in the BDVD mode and will start without problems.(For this CFW are not enabled the discless locale payload as it needs them)
  • Full discless for each cfw.(further files for patched cfw 4.53 to support some games that gave black screen)
  • Put new soundtracks to manager just to make it more original.
  • NTFS support for each CFW (in testing phase)
  • Completely Stealth for online play.

Thank you: Estwald, Rancid-o, Aldo Vargas, Habib, franzes, Pullecalo. Guys I repeat that the source code will be released when there will be the release of ode version, that I think will take a while to arrive anyway I hope you enjoy my work.

Yes ! cfw 4.70 for me : it works very well.

Same as anybootyfiller, does this work without cobra?

I haven't been able to find an answer to that, probably because I'm a No0b...

Following up on the previous revisions, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Orion has updated their PS3 Backup Game Manager to GameSonic Manager v3.65 including a Stealth Edition with the changes outlined below.

Download: Gamesonic-Manager v3.65.pkg / Gamesonic Manager[Vidzone Stealth].pkg / Gamesonic-Manager-master.rar / GSP.ISO (Gamesonic Player for PSP / PS Vita) by franzes80

To quote, roughly translated: Gamesonic Manager v3.65 & Gamesonic Manager v3.65 Stealth Edition

Guys here's to you as a gift for the Holy Easter Gamesonic Manager v3.65 where I added some interesting things and that by the time I would be sought.


  • Added Automatic Update Manager
  • Added option to the System Info style Multiman or Rebug Toolbox
  • Removed message "Scanning Games"
  • Added Auto Swap buttons X and O Console Jap or DEX with the option Swap Enabled (Thanks Joonie)
  • Added option Cobra Spoof tools for Cobra CFW (this spoof prevent accidental updates or starting games on CFW lower unpatched)
  • Now the manager will also be started on CFW not supported and will start all its settings except mount games and Fan Control (Thanks Aldostools)
  • Reintegrated into the app TestPad Utility Manager
  • This is a screen that shows the function Info System on CFW 4.70 Rebug D-REX

Function Automatic Update:

  • This function proceeds to download startup manager a .txt (20-22 bytes) containing the version of the manager, if the file is the same as the manager starts normally, but if it is different proceed to download files and RELOAD.SELF PARAM.SFO, only 2 files that update every relase, and install them in the directory Gamesonic Manager.
  • Immediately after the manager will reboot itself and proceed to its normal operation.
