In this new release and was again included Retroarch after a lot of requests from users of the PS3 scene and fix some bugs.


  • Fixed bug that kept the number of grids set by the user.

  • Gamepad test moved to the submenu "Advanced Tools".
  • To install the Orion developer Retroarch has developed a small app called "Retro-installer" that allows the user to install retroarch in gamesonic manager.This method resolves the issue of the heaviness of the manager due to retroarch, which didn't like users, and after installing retroarch you can delete this app safely.

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.
