Are there any plans for a Gameshark or other code perhipheral for the X-Box?
I've been wondering this too. It would sure be nice. There's probably some legal entanglement with Microsoft, where as if InterAct releases one they would get sued.
They can make whatever they want for the X-Box, but the hardware and MS are probably trying to make it very difficult. They don't have a GameShark for the GameCube out, either. Probably some technical stuff getting in the way.
There's no ports on the XBox with direct memory access. The Memory card only accessses the HD on XB. I'd say it's impossible unless they do a physical program, which could then be blocked by game designers (detect program, game won't run)
Couldn't they do a program that acts like a boot disc and modifies the game code before the game is even loaded by the X-Box?
I hope that there is never a gameshark or similar for the Xbox. Not everyone is good at a game, suck it up if you aren't good at it....I'll be the first to admit I SUCK at RPGs and RTS type of games.
I personally like the idea of having some sort of cheating device because you can usually do things beyond just invincibility codes, like modify the physics or change around the default controls. True, online cheating is a problem, but I still think that if someone wants to buy a GameShark there's nothing wrong with it.
No, they can't do it before the game is loaded without patching the actual game disc.
As long as they don't use it online I have no problem with people having one
I want a gameshark mainly for the screwy things that can be done with it. I remember a code for Tekken 3 where you could switch the motion capture data...so Ogre moved like Eddy. It was great fun.
The programmers could put a code to lockout all other code but theres into the online play. They could figure a way out.
i don't think a gameshark should ever should be released for xbox....WAY to risky for xbox live cheating that could ruin the whole thing
Id hate it if people cheated on Live. But ust like others said, Im really interested in the codes that would somewhat alter the game. Those cheats are pretty fun! ANd they are usually new. Wouldnt it be cool to have an all weapons cheat in Halo or something like that?
Oh, I'm willing tobet that if people find ways to cheat on XBox Live games that there WILL be patches to disable those cheats
Isn't Interact having some sort of trouble? I hear Datel, the actual maker of the Gameshark, which is called the Action Replay in Europe, doesn't want Interact to have the license to make Gamesharks anymore. They've decided to make Action Replay here in the States itself under its true name. I've noticed Action Replays in the online game stores for upcoming releases, and the AR for PS2 claims to be backwards compatible with Gameshark2 codes.
I don't mind cheating one on one, but as soon as you get another person in the equation, I strongly detest it, unless both/all parties agree to use cheats. I think mandatory patches to get around cheating would be the way to go. If you don't upgrade, you can't get online with the game.
I hope there never comes a day that you can buy a Gameshark for the Xbox. Simple as that.
Personally I'm doubting it's even possibly without a modchip. You just can't get the DMA you need from those USB ports
I'd like to see one, but I doubt it will happen. At least not in the near future.
