    Game Genie For PS3 To Debut at E3

    Game Genie returns to consoles, shows PS3 version at E3 -Destructoid


    Hyperkin announced they will be rebooting Game Genie, the nostalgic, cheat code enabler for PlayStation 3. There is no release date at this time, but the product will be showed off at E3 with Skyrim and other recent releases.

    Sometimes I wonder if we were really so awesome at videogames in the '90s or if we just forgot how much help Game Genie gave us along the way. Like Game Shark after it, Game Genie was a device that attached to consoles and allowed players to turn on a variety of cheats and weird glitches that programmers never wanted players to see. It was awesome!

    Here's a list of features:

    Loads, uploads and backs up your save data

    All-in-one USB drive to transfer saves from PS3 to PC for easy modification

    Unlocks secret content from weapons, levels, items, etc.

    Ability to trade game saves with other players


    The big appeal here, for me, is the ability to trade saves and upload them online. I loved being able to launch into the endgame of an RPG via saves in emulators, back in the day, and I've missed this ability ever since. It also has a more practical application, considering how disastrous PS3's saves can be. Sometimes you can't transfer save files to your new PS3, as I learned the hard way.

    This Game Genie could save people a lot of trouble if it functions correctly. I haven't heard much about the previous Game Genie for DS that Hyperkin put out so I'm a bit skeptical. I'm also a bit puzzled by how this will effect cheating in multiplayer and trophy achievements. Surely, the last thing Sony and its community wants is more cheaters. These are different times, after all.

    thats nice

    this is really dumb in my opinion
    I used gameshark and other cheats on my pokemon, but thats because it was more fun to play those games with cheats. Cheating on ps3 games would ruin it. both for trophies, as well as take away from the games (collecting pokemon is different from the types of games currently on ps3)

    you all missed the 90s/80s


    game sharks/action replays/game genies are the best things in gaming history.


    you could literally do whatever with those products.

    Maybe don't create the page then?

    I had fun with my Gameshark for PSOne. I'll give it a miss this time around.

    Has no one yet heard of the Xploder yet? This has been around for quite awhile now and has the ability to resign game saves from one user to another......
