Deank has released a minor update to his PS3 file manager MultiMan, it’s just a small 6.76MB update to fix 8001003C errors that many users have been reporting. The multiMAN 04.20.04 also fixes some other minor issues caused by having alternative PS3 File managers like Iris running along with MultiMan.
Here’s Deank’s note about the 4.21.4 update:
This should fix 8001003C errors on all supported firmwares and also should fix some more issues caused by Iris/mM launched one after another.
Good news for Final Fantasy fans, Although Square Enix has yet to announce the details, a report from Gematsu (also confirmed by Japanese magazine Shonen Jump) that the long awaited remake of Final Fantasy X and the sequel Final Fantasy X-2 will be due this 2013.
Both Final Fantasy X and X-2 will be released on a single disc for the PS3 while FFX and FFX-2 will be sold separately for the Vita. This seems to make sense if we consider the limited capacity of Vita games, but this is just speculation. The remake for the Final Fantasy X HD was announced last 2011 during the Tokyo Game Show, but updates about the remake seems to have been scarce until recently footage from a Sony Vita event showcased some FFX characters in HD, namely Tidus and Yuna.
Here’s the video of the Final Fantasy X Characters in HD showcased on the PS Vita:
Let’s just hope the game wont have that always-online DRM that ruined SimCity.
iOS 6.1.3 update is now available for download. Apple has rolled out another minor iOS update with iOS 6.1.3. The iOS 6.1.3 update was expected to come as the beta version of the 6.1.3 update has been rolled out to developers early last month for testing.
The iOS 6.1.3 update is only a 28.5MB download so updating to the latest iOS firmware would not take much of your time all the while addressing bugs to improve security.
As you can see from the screenshot above, the update addresses two main issues: the Lock screen bug has now been fixed, and adds some improvements to Apple maps for Japan.
The new Samsung Galaxy S4 has now been officially launched, but leaves a lot of fans feeling it needed more. Aside from the fact that the S4 pretty much looks like the Galaxy S3, but the S4 now has a full 5-inch screen which is just a very small increase from the 4.8 inch screen of the Galaxy S3. Despite the fact the the S4 is slightly narrower, thinner and has a more rectangular look, one might not distinguished the S4 from the S3 unless you compare them side by side. Reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and the 4s being practically the same.
After SimCity‘s always-online DRM screw-up, frustration sets in as players not being able to play the game begin to start asking for refunds, Maxis has issued and internal memo from general manager Lucy Bradshaw detailing the sorry state of the game and that Maxis is working hard to get SimCity fully operational and address player connectivity issues that resulted from the totally unnecessary always-online requirement of the game.
Also, EA Maxis has pulled marketing for SimCity by asking affiliates to stop actively promoting the game. IGN was able to obtain a copy of the memo from Origin to affiliates which you can read below:

While it seems that the social media gaming giant Zynga is falling apart, doing staff lay-offs along with closing down offices, and the recent departure of Chief game designer Brian Reynolds, legal battles over similarities in games such as EA’s SimCity Social, Zynga has still a few aces up its sleeve. Even though the company has posted a $209 million loss in 2012, it seems that Zynga’s intention to enter real money games is coming to fruition. This will be a big move profit wise as last year they have already published a report that they have already established a partnership with a big gaming company to launch real money games in the UK.
Following the release of the PlayStation retrospective videos, Sony has also released the full video of the live PlayStation 4 announcement last February 4, so in case you missed it, here you can watch the full PlayStation 4 announcement.
The PS4 event lasted for 2 hours, not much to say about the PS4 itself since they did not reveal the actual console to the public yet. However, they showed off the new PlayStation 4 controller and the new PlayStation eye. Along with some cool game footage of new games for the PS4, one of my favorites was Watch Dogs, although I was a little disappointed that Watch Dogs would be a PS4 game since I thought the game would be released for the PS3, but when you consider the massiveness of Watch Dogs, one should really expect the game to be designed for a newer and more powerful console. Well see.
