Following up on the previous revisions, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Orion has updated their PS3 Backup Game Manager to GameSonic Manager v3.54 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Source_Gamesonic_Manager_v3.54.pkg / Source_Gamesonic_Manager_v3.54.rar

To quote, roughly translated: Gamesonic Manager v3.54

Months ago the developer Joonie contacted me and asked me to make Gamesonic Manager compatible the next CFW Rebug, the 4.65.2 REX, and with a new way to play PS2 games on PS3 retro compatibility.

This not saying that the code has not been very easy to integrate, but for a couple of days I managed to make it work and to automate the procedure.


  • If the manager will be on CFW 4.65 or 4.66 Rebug Cobra Habib whenever that will be launched a PS2Classic create a 0 byte file called "classic_ps2" in dev_hdd0, this will activate the mode PS2Classic.
  • If the manager will be on CFW 4.65 or 4.66 Rebug Cobra Habib whenever that will be started and will detect the file "classic_ps2" deletes it to enable the start of ISO PS2.
