Yes, the Samsung Hubs all require an account. Go to Menu/Settings/Accounts & Sync/Add an account.

Do you mean GameHub or Samsung Apps?

4.0.3 but Game Hub does is just an app that groups some games together. You can access those games without going through GameHub.

Samsung Apps does require input of username / password everytime you want to see your apps.

The Game Hub requires an update, which is done via Samsung Apps, which in turn requires an account. As creating one is free, why not just do so?

That's what it looks like. You say you try to run it and it demands updating....

Your choice, of course. I merely suggested the solution.
