Following up on their previous updates, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Orion has updated the PS3 Backup Game Manager to GameSonic Manager v3.45 followed by v3.46 Christmas Edition with details below.

Download: Source_Gamesonic_Manager_v3.45.pkg / Source_Gamesonic_Manager_v3.45.rar / Gamesonic Manager[Vidzone Stealth].pkg / Gamesonic_Manager_v3.46__Christmas_Edition_.pkg / Gamesonic_Manager_v3.46[Christmas Edition].pkg (Mirror) / Gamesonic_Manager_v3.46[Christmas Edition ].pkg (Mirror #2)

To quote, roughly translated: Here is the new version of guys Gamesonic Manager that comes to version 3.45 with only three new features, but this time not counts the number but the quality.


  • Universal Spoof reinstated and now finally working on all CFW 4.46-4.55-4.65 (thanks vittorio).
  • Added Installer of stage2.bin of Deank for CFW 4.46 and 4.66 in the "Cobra Tools".
  • Added A simple installer for the music of the manager.

A few words about how to install the music in the manager:

In a FAT32 device, create a folder called "music" and placed inside your songs in .mod format, the only supported by the manager for now, renamed "music1.mod", "music2.mod" etc. (There is a limit the installation of eight songs.

This pendrive connected to the first port of the PS3 (the port nearest the bluray player, dev_usb000). Start the manager and go to the menu "Video and Audio Settings" and select the "Install your Music".

GameSonic Manager v3.46 Christmas Edition Changelog:

  • Fixed a small bug in the function of removing spoof
  • Fixed a bug in the installation of the stage2.bin dev Deank
  • Added new function that allows to change background image it by pressing the keys/in the games list
  • Added splash screen that will wish you a Merry Christmas whenever Gamesonic Manager will detect that the date ranges from 23 December to 7 January
  • Added new background images in Christmas theme.
  • Adding a new Christmas-themed soundtrack

Finally, from Orion: I have included the code of PRX Loader in Gamesonic Manager, it is all automatic. there is a only bug:

After have loaded a plugin with success the manager can't load games. I will try to fix this bug and if i don't will succeed I'll release Gamesonic Manager with the function and the code of PRX Loader without the use of self prx loader.

Gamesonic Manager v3.47 is coming soon!


  • Now automatically detects the following parties: Thanksgiving - Christmas / New Year - Halloween
  • Added support to CFW 4.66 DEX (Change Console ID / Control FAN / autorename file discless / Mounting backup)
