Stop Opposing Cheat Devices for Video Games sign now

Ever since the Game Genie was proposed by Galoob in the eighties, Nintendo has opposed cheat devices for video games, and even worse, lied about it. A lawsuit was filed to stop the release of the device but only delayed it for one year. Since then Nintendo has opposed such devices wholeheartedly, programming their games to lock out, fail to operate with and even destroy such devices. Though they can be repaired for free, the fact remains. So why does Nintendo do this? Don't ask them, they just claim it's just incompatible, and that they make no attempt to support it. This is completely false as hundreds of times, looking at the programming of games has proven attempts to hinder their operation. Rareware, before being bought by Microsoft, was notorious for this. They claimed it was an anti-piracy measure, however this is obviously not true. Late N64 games of theirs used tactics such as random memory placement, which while certainly making cheat devices hard to use, does not at all help stop piracy. In fact, in order to make codes for these devices that allow them to work, the games must be copied to a computer so the code makers can search the programming - in short, it promotes piracy.
When Nintendo filed their lawsuit against Galoob, their claim was that by allowing players to cheat, they finished the games sooner and proceeded to sell them. With more people selling games, more people buy used copies which costs the company money. They could not be more wrong. Without cheat devices to modify games in fun new ways, games get boring much faster. I would have sold at least 10 of my games, but I kept them because cheat devices are always opening up new ways to make them fun. By the same logic Nintendo is using, they have made several hundred dollars because of this. There are no security risks, and the company is selling more. Why try to stop it?

    The GameShark is the best thing ever to happen to N64. I personally know I bought games just to hack, and I am sure a lot of people did the same. W/o a GS I would've given up the N64 A LONG time ago. Hacking saved it. I can't count how many times i hacked

    Cheating is an option many choose to do. People cheat for many different reasons. These being to numerous to list, I will say this. That if someone cheats for the sake of winning the game faster, than they have missed the point of the game...or your games
