159w ago - 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 CyberGadget.co.jp 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 Amazon).
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."

The price is just as crazy as the PSDowngrade. I just assumed this would be some kind of backup manager with cheat functions. I remember when gamer was a hardly used term, and only for people that played all kinds of games, not the latest shooter to come out.
Cheat devices are useful, especially if you want to unlock all the goodies and jump straight into the multiplayer or vs mode of games. Spending the normal amount of time to get all the gear in Resident Evil is just overkill. Once you beat a game like that, it's not fun to replay it a 1000 times just to unlock the extra stuff.
With that said, I'll never pay 100 USD for a cheat device. That is nearly double the cost of a new PS3 game. It doesn't even work past 3.41 (obviously jailbreak dependent) so in my opinion that makes it even less valuable. What happened to the 20-40$ range for these things....
If it gets ripped I'll just use a free rip instead Serves them right for such a high price anyway.
now wait a second.. you all are saying that cheating is not good and blah blah.
it's not cheating for some of us. I started playing games when I was 8 years old and I'm almost 30 now and I still play games because as Bernard Show says “We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”.
I used to play a lot of games on hard in my time because I HAD TIME. I finished Metal Gear all 1,2 and 3 on all levels with getting all tags just for the hell of it and because I had time.
now I'm juggling between a family, doing masters and a part-time job and I want some "me" time with my PS3. and I dont want to waste my time that I don't have much of anymore collecting gills or whatever needs collecting. I want to get the experience and have fun with the game and even talk about with my brother who is 15 years younger than me. personally I don't play online so believe me if I say you'll not play against me while cheating.
so, please stop all the B.S. about "this is not gaming" or "it takes all the fun". some of us need this stuff to have fun and still function in society. other than that I don't think that this is like codebreaker or gameshark. I'd say it's more like a save editor where you can get what.
