Code Freak PS3 Cheat Device is Slated to Hit Japan This Winter
Today GamersMint.com (linked above) reports that an unofficial PS3 Cheat Device made by Code Freak is slated to hit Japan this winter.
The upcoming PS3 cheat code device is currently being marketed on Japanese site http://home.cybergadget.co.jp/products/4544859697777.html for PS3 consoles on PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.41 or below.
To quote: "This device will be used with the PS3 and will cost around 7800 Yen (around $100 via http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%B5%E3%82%A4%E3%83%90%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AC%E3%82%B8%E3%82%A7%E3%83%83%E3%83%88-CYBER-%E3%82%B3%E3%83%BC%E3%83%89%E3%83%95%E3%83%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AF-PS3%E7%94%A8-%E7%99%BA%E5%A3%B2%E6%97%A5%E6%9C%AA%E5%AE%9A/dp/B004DL21Y0).
Though the current firmware version for the PS3 is 3.50, this device will only be compatible with v3.41, as stated on the product's website.
It will be available for sale by the end of this year and is claimed to provide cheats for more than 50 titles at the moment, that includes FF XIII and Demon's Souls."
I wonder how it will work. Like how do you use a specific cheat in game. Will there be a special menu option on the XMB or maybe you have to install an app? This will probably be reversed and released for "free" after a while.
Just like the Gameshark & ActionReplay good old days, cheating devices aren't established on the ps3 up to this moment because of the various encryptions on the system, seems like the jailbreak has a major part in this.
While i do agree that cheating online is wrong, I for one am happy about this news, I prefer to be able to cheat in my single player games, especially games like final fantasy that include way more grinding than I have time for and/or games like demons souls that do not have an easy difficulty level.
