Game Genie helps you cheat your way through PS3 games

PSU writes: "Remember the Game Genie? Well Hyperkin is releasing Game Genie: Save Editor for PlayStation 3 to help unlock cheats that will assist bad/lazy gamers blow through levels and whole games. The product works by modifying save data with cheat codes that unlock a variety of possibilities. Hyperkin plans to debut the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 at E3 next week." (E3, Hyperkin, PS3)

lol, next thing you know they will be charging for Game Genie codes as DLC too... (hope I didn't give the Game Genie developers any ideas)

Hmmm interesting, I'm assuming it disables trophies though lol.
Emilio_Estevez  +   882d ago
Yeah, you have to mod the save file, which will disable trophies.
Nitrowolf2  +   882d ago
No trophies still work. I've kept my eye on these for a while now.

"It works through a USB flash drive that contains an installation program. This allows you to transfer save files between the PS3 and PC. A PC program in the USB drive will write cheats onto your save files. Then you’ll transfer the edited save files from PC back to the PS3. It comes with a continuously updated server that adds new codes to the newest games."

This stuff is already available and been for months now. Nothing new at all.

Pretty much the cheats will be for trophies. Making them easier to obtain. SO rather then beat a game on hardest difficulty in a few days this will let you be on the last segment right away.

Terrble device.

This will only fly if they make sure it doesn't work for multi-player...
Nitrowolf2  +   882d ago
It won't
This is already available just as a different product name. It doesn't work for MP because game developers are smart enough to have the MP data on the HDD rather then in the saves. Only game this would work for MP is COD4

Are games too hard for you? games this gen have been too easy imo, with a few exceptions
NastyLeftHook0  +   881d ago
nope, demon/dark souls should be the standard for rpg's.

What you PS3 kids aren't good enough to finish games without help? Bums.
NastyLeftHook0  +   881d ago
Seriously?
thebudgetgamer  +   881d ago
Sometimes, I don't know.
ShaunCameron  +   880d ago
The same can be said about PC gamers. After all they cry about not being able to enjoy a game that won't let them mod it.
mushroomwig  +   881d ago
Well so much for trophies, I was quite fond of my trophy/platinum count but now some people will just cheat their way to a platinum.
Dark_Overlord  +   880d ago
People have been doing it for a long time, only requires a hex editor to resign a save :/
0pie  +   881d ago
thats verry lame. Real gamers dont need this shit.
NYC_Gamer  +   880d ago
I don't like cheats/guides rather beat games on the hard difficulty on my own

To be honest, I don't think there's a need for such things in this generation. At first I thought, "Oh, cool." But the longer I thought about it, the less necessary it seemed to me.

Too late now, though, I guess.
