Pokémon X and Y Update 1.3 Released October 28, 2014

A major update for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y has been released by Nintendo this week. The update includes a variety of bug fixes for both of the Generation 6 Pokémon titles as well as all of the previous fixes from earlier updates.

To update your game, you must download the 1.3 patch from the Nintendo eShop. Simply do a search for “Update” and the 1.3 updates for either game should come up on the list of downloads. If you don’t have a wireless Internet connection at your location, I would recommend bringing your 3DS to a Nintendo Zone location. Nintendo Zone locations can typically be found at areas with AT&T hotspots and offer free wireless Internet to 3DS owners. Don’t forget to update your 3DS firmware while you’re there, since you can’t access the eShop without the most recent 3DS firmware installed.

Two versions of the 1.3 update were released, one for Pokémon X and one for Pokémon Y. You must install the proper update for your version of the game to ensure compatibility with your game. You do not need to have any previous updates installed on your 3DS to install update 1.3.

The 1.3 update can be downloaded right now and is required to use the game’s online features.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are out now on the Nintendo 3DS.

Playstation App 2.0.7 Released October 28, 2014

Because of the major PS4 system update release today, Sony has had to update the official Playstation Companion App for Smartphones. This was a pretty smart move, as I’ve been having issues with the Playstation App’s Second Screen functionality since Apple released iOS 8. Hopefully this new version of the app fixes that.

The new version comes with an updated new interface and can now support a tablet layout. Check your device’s official App Store to install the update.

UPDATE: The new version of the app does seem to fix the Second Screen issues I’ve been having. If you’ve been having issues with connecting your phone to your PS4 since installing iOS 8, make sure to update your app to the new version.
