The game genie might be a good old name but that was the time when internet was not for everyone and so infos were spreading in different way, and may be that previous game genie was more a real need than the one now (i don t know so much about the original one and how it was working but probably required for convenience at least).
If you are able to paid for such things, it s like paying for param.sfo editor and it ll help to finance the next DRM type kind (3ds/ PSVITA ...)
And make any little infos even more "precious" and most likely not release/shared etc...
And misleading infos and speech come with that.
If you want to please yourself (for the "i do what i want to do"), buy some accessory instead.
I skipped the part about cheating online with that and trophy thing i don t mind but regulars users will probably not like to confront.
Game Genie primary is to mod your saves. But it has a secondary feature to re-sign your saves. Also, actually once you have installed Game Genie on your PC, you can use any
USB thumb to resign your saves. Actually you don't have to use Game Genie's physical USB anymore.
