UPDATE! Rogero has released an update with Rogero 4.50 v1.00 CFW.
Rogero has been busy these past few days, just after releasing Rogero 4.46 v1.00 cfw he has release a new version of his popular PS3 CFW with Rogero 4.46 v1.01 cfw. The 4.46 v1.01 is just a minor update that adds a Toolbox for StealthMan.
Rogero 4.46 v1.01 CFW is pretty much identical to 4.46 v1.00 with only the added stealthman toolbox.
One important note:
Some user have been reported that PSOne games does not work with Rogero 4.46 v1.01, which is odd because PSOne games run perfectly well on 4.46 v1.00. But rest assured that Rogero is working on a fix for this. So in case you still want to play your PSOne games, you can skip this update for the meantime. And if you have already updated to v1.01 and want to downgrade to 4.46 v1.00, you can always downgrade to 3.55 using Rogero’s downgrader.
Here’s how to install Rogero 4.46 v1.01 CFW:
After updating to Rogero 4.46 cfw, users have reported that Multiman (and all other older versions) is having problems loading their backed up games. Even though Deank has been silent and seems to be having some time off from the homebrew scene, he has released a new version of multiman with Multiman 4.46.01 to help fellow PS3 custom firmware users who are having problems.
Here’s whats included in the Multiman 4.46.01 update:
* Now supports 4.46CFWs,
* Updated Turkish translation language file
* Fixed BD movie region support for 4.41CFWs.
* Updated explore_plugin.sprx for 4.46 to avoid Trophy display misalignment
UPDATE! Rogero has released an update with Rogero 4.50 v1.00 CFW.
Rogero is back again with a new update to his popular cfw for the PS3 with Rogero 4.46 v1.00. PS3 Official Firmware 4.46 has been available for some time now as a fix for the errors introduced by the PS3 4.45 OFW that resulted to some bricked consoles. And obviously Rogero has skipped making a cfw for 4.45 and went with the more stable 4.46 firmware.
Here’s how to install Rogero 4.46 v1.00 on your PS3:

The unveiling of Microsoft’s Xbox One has generated a lot of publicity, not all of it positive. The initial reveal prioritized multimedia over gaming, and as news came out over draconian DRM policies and a lock-down on the second-hand market, gamers got even more irate. Microsoft has since backtracked on a number of the initial announcements, so making an informed decision on whether to buy the Xbox One is becoming more and more difficult, and many gamers are saying that they’ll choose other game consoles instead due to Microsoft’s initial statements. So what’s the real deal with the Xbox One?
The specs on the Xbox One include an eight core AMD processor, integrated graphics sporting eight Gigabytes of DD3 RAM provided by Radeon. This makes it significantly faster than the Xbox 360, allowing for better graphics and higher performance, but slightly less impressive than the PS4. Gaming on either of the consoles should be significantly better than on older generation consoles.

In case you missed it, here’s the announced Ultra Street Fighter 4 trailer that Capcom revealed during EVO 2013. It’s not exactly a new game because the game will be available digitally as a DLC along with the Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Update. The game will include 5 new characters, 6 new stages and some game balance changes.
The new characters are: Elena, Hugo, Poison and Rolento. While the 5th new character will be a mystery character and we will know when the game comes out.
Ultra Street Fighter 4 is reported to cost about $15 and it will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
No exact release date yet, but sources say it will be announced early in 2014.
As EVO 2013 kicked off this weekend, we get to watch hundreds of players battle it out for this year’s video game fighting championships. The matches provided us with great matchups as the players showcased their impressive and not to mention, jaw dropping combos. You can get the full schedule and list of streaming sites for EVO 13 here. And here we compiled 5 memorable matches from the main stage of EVO 2013.
Here’s the top 5 matches over the weekend:
Street Fighter 4: John Choi VS. TS Sabin – Classic Ryu vs Dhalsim matchup with an impressive ending.
Street Fighter 4 Quarter Finals: MCZ Tokido Vs. FNEX EMP RG K-Brad – The ending was quite a memorable one, just one pixel of health left and still got the win. Reminds us of that classic Daigo comeback from EVO 2004
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Finals: Eightarc Bronson Tran Vs. CafelD Nin – This game just reminded us of how much we are noobs at Tekken Tag when compared to these two.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Grand Final: CafelD Knee Vs. Eightarc Bronson Tran – A match between two great Tekken players, Knee is arguably one of the best Devil Jin users in Tekken.
Person 4 Arena Grand Final: Yume Vs. LordKnight – One of the best Persona 4 matches ever, and here we see why Yume could possibly be the strongest Persona 4 player right now.
Rockstar has released the Official Gameplay video for Grand Theft Auto 5. And as expected, it looked amazing. The gameplay video showcased the huge lists of things you can do in the world of GTA. From playing golf, investing in stocks, skydiving and undersea diving among others. Well enough of the chitchat and watch the GTA 5 gameplay video below and see for yourself.
As of writing the video has already received more than 11 million views.
We’ve all been waiting for this glimpse of GTA 5, and we already expected the game to be awesome since we first saw the first GTA 5 trailer (you can watch the second trailer here). Character customization has also been brought back from San Andreas. And from what we saw from the trailer, planes have been brought back which was missed from GTA IV. GTA 5 is so huge you can even go out and go hunting in the wilderness.
And from the Online gameplay teaser at the end of the video, aptly called GTA Online, Sure looks like a lot of fun and mayhem. Cant wait for September 17 to arrive.
You can pre-order GTA 5 on Amazon for the PS3 here and for the Xbox 360 here. And if you pre-order now, you can get a bonus of gaining the ability to pilot the Atomic Blimp, the Atomic Blimp floats around Los Santos much like the iconic Good Year Blimp. This bonus applies to both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
The term “Xbox” right now is universally accepted as Microsoft’s first gaming console in their early attempt to enter the gaming scene and compete with Sony and Nintendo, and the word Xbox is short for “DirectX Box” as Seamus Blackley, Godfather of the Xbox explained.

This news instantly reminded me of the Xbox One reveal, makes me think they never considered other suggestions and just went ahead with “Xbox One” just in time to catch up with the Playstation 4 reveal. And how they come from 2-3 letter acronyms to a full word Xbox, I don’t know.
What about you? What are your thoughts? Feel free to give a piece of your mind on the comments below.
Gamestop is reporting that the company has currently closed pre-orders for the Playstation 4 in the US after Gamestop has sold out all their allocated PS4 launch units.
Bad news for those who has not pre-ordered yet, but such high demand for the console is good news for Sony.
As you can see from the image above, Gamestop has announced on their website that the Playstation 4 is “currently sold out”, and there’s no word yet on whether this is permanent or just temporary while Gamestop tries to increase their stock and eventually re-open pre-orders for the PS4. However, interested user can still submit their email addresses to receive updates when Playstation 4 reservation will be available again.
Below is a statement from a Gamestop spokesperson to Gameinformer:
“Due to high demand for the system, GameStop is not currently taking additional store reservations for the PlayStation 4.”
This is bad news if you are still looking forward to pre-ordering a PS3 on Gamestop because there is still no news on whether pre-orders for the PS4 will be re-opened, but on the other side of the story, this is definitely great news for Sony. Having such demand for the PS4 being higher what what Sony has already anticipated is great news for them and definitely would make Microsoft rethink their strategies for the Xbox 180… I mean Xbox One.
Something also worth mentioning: “Game Informer is owned by GameStop”
