Game Genie Returns For All Those Who Despise Following Rules
Duuuude...remember the Game Genie? Sure you do.
It was one of those cheating devices that let you do all kinds of unfair things in the gaming world. And it's coming back.
A user has shot us a link to Hyperkin, where you can check out the new Game Genie. It becomes available on July 17 and for only $29.99, you can mess with your game saves and get all Godlike.
Basically, you transfer game saves to your PC, edit them using pre-programmed edits from a database, and then just return the save files to your PS3. Voila! As for games that you can tinker with, many of the biggest titles available are on the chopping block: "Popular games that will have modifications at release are Uncharted 3, Batman: Arkham City, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim." However, it's important to note that, as mentioned at Joystiq, there will be no cheating in multiplayer modes.
But there don't appear to be any restrictions on the single-player altering. So have yourself a blast!
