The code the above comment is referencing as some of you already know is the famous Konami Code, The first time I ever used this code was on an old Nintendo game called Contra, it would start you out with 99 lives. When you hit select before start it would start you and your buddy out in 2 player mode with 99 lives each. The way I originally came across this code was a phone number in the manual that said call this number for support or code I forget exactly it was defiantly a call center.
