    is it much harder to hack PlayStation then Nintendo?
    I mean I don't care about online cheating!
    But I love to cheat in Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts.
    Specially when I have completed the game ones!

    But I mean I have search on the internet and did not find cheating app or something it PS3 or PS4?
    In the Wii and Wii U you can cheat and have infinite health and more.

    So why isn't it the same to PlayStation?

    there are save editors tools out for ps3 and ps4 if you look
    but
    one main thing is Encryption and linking saves to your account/profile/PSN ID , if you mess with the save it might not work anymore

    This is true. I've been waiting for a save editor that changes the region of a save. Hopefully it doesn't take too long and if does get released, hopefully it doesn't mess up my save.

    Waiting is a pain though. There are save editors, so I'd imagine someone would do this by now. It doesn't help that there hasn't been anything going on with the xploder recently :(

    Yes this I know and that's good help indeed because it is more like a handicap for many to be stronger and have full lvl or max coins.

    But in Wii and Wii U you can be immortal and play like a god. :)
    But this is only funny for me after I already completed the game ones!
    And of course never online for me! It isn't fair at all!
    I want to face better people then myself! If I can't handle it I don't play online. :)

    But this most mean that Nintendo is easier to hack or it is more love there?
    But I think of course it is easier to hack then PlayStation.
    If not then I don't understand why it isn't hacked already?

    You can do this with the PS3 as well. Google netcheat. Need to be on CFW though.

    There is a couple of reasons why,

    1) Sony invest heavly in security. They're superfast on patches and will do everything possible to destroy anything that might cause piracy.
    2) Costs. A PS4 (was?) is really expensive, factor the costs of breaking a PS4 two, three or even four times compared to for example a Wii U. You will soon see a big reason why.
    3) Scariness! Sony have actually sued a hacker for jailbreaking the PS3, google Geohots and PS3 for more information.
    4) The games? Most games on Playstation and Xbox are multiplatform, even some exclusives have been ported to PC. PC is therefore the most cost effective and the choice a lot take rather than a console. The most people I know own a Nintendo product (3DS mostly) and a PC. Not a Playstation + a PC. Since Nintendo's IP stay only on Nintendo hardware.

    Openly public cheating tools died out with like ps2/xbox/gamecube/NDS systems. No action replay/Gameshark/codebreaker/ game genie like it used to be. (No i didn't forget gateshark or arcodes for 3ds) But homebrew stuff just take time to do accurately. Probably why save editors are the new direction people do aim for. Sure it be fun to hack ram but maybe is just more complex to do than save editor.

    Yeah. :( Nintendo did fight against cheating I believe it was game genie or something?
    The lost the battle because it was the persons own choice I think?

    But I believe the didn't give up at all but when the online did came the could update the firmware.
    So it was of course easier to stop the cheating devices. I don't know if it was people who used cheats online who did too many harm and destroyed for Nintendo,Sony and Microsoft?

    But players who are cheating online do destroy for other players but like you said it isn't easy to do toyday because they ban you.

    So yes Save editors is today maybe the only way to have some help in the game. :)

    Ok. :)
    I definitely did believe that someone would want that because of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. :)
    Nintendo did lose Square when the didn't want to update to CD I think?
    For me it was one of the stupid things Nintendo did.
    I'm am and will always be Nintendo fan.
    But why I buy PlayStation is just for Square do games there. :)
    Then I really love Tekken to so yeah that's it. :)

    So that's why I was wondering why it isn't hacked the same way like Wii u.

    So of this save editors witch one is the best?

    I believe you wouldn't be able to use save editors just yet. I read something back then about a dsave editor but it needed you to buy something for the PS4

    If your PS3 is on CFW, then it should be as simple as installing CCAPI on your PS3 and us netcheat to connect to your PS3. It has been a while since I have used my PS3, and even longer since I have installed everything to get netcheat working. So my memory is probably fuzzy.

    Another reason why hackers won't hack the PS4,because Sony is very serious about the piracy and there is high chance they will ban anyone one hack his system and connect to online even once.

    We thought Nintendo won't ever do that,but we were wrong,many people got banned in the last ban wave for 3DS.

    About the save editor,there is actually two save editor,one mostly support Japanese region games and some western region games,the other support EU and NA and some Asian region games,however both save editors doesn't support resigning saves and change the region of the save file,and both of them doesn't and won't support FFXV save file modding because of the file size is too big and they requires you to upload the save on their server to edit them and re-download it.

    There is also another program only for resigning saves,but it still in beta,and only support EU region games for the moment.
