The Game Genie was the shit back in the day, right up there with the Gameshark. When it came to hacking the hell out of N64 games, there was no better option.

But we never really thought the thing would be revived for modern-day audiences, especially given the always-online status of most games and companies' tendencies to crack down hard on any form of cheating, even in single-player games.

Nevertheless, Hyperkin's new PS3 Game Genie launched today. It allows you to transfer saves from your PS3 to your PC, where you can doctor them with preset cheat codes to add things like infinite ammo, invulnerability and more, then transfer them back to your PS3. You can also back up your save files and trade them with other players.

Hyperkin says they'll remove any cheats that apply to multiplayer modes, so you'll only be messing with your own experience and no one else's.

Uncharted 3, Batman: Arkham City, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are some of the "popular games" that already have cheats available. What other games would you like to gratuitously cheat in? Do you think there's room for the Game Genie in today's industry? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
