Beyond Playstation 2
The Xploder V5 Media Centre is the most advanced game enhancement and media system in the world. Packed with stunning and innovative new features, the Xploder V5 takes the Playstation 2 to a whole new level. Bringing incredible digital lifestyle compatibility to the PS2 for the first time, the Xploder V5 incorporates MPEG1 & 2, JPEG and MP3 playback technology.
The best cheats
The Xploder V5 is still the most advanced cheat system available. With over 55,000 codes available for more than 600 top PS2 games, the Xploder V5 also includes over 1,300 pre-loaded Game Saves containing Xeno Save technology and unique manipulated saves that really get to the heart of the game. The Xploder V5’s enhanced code system now allows you an even greater degree of control over your games with new Easy and Expert modes that adjust the cheats automatically depending on how you want to play!
Bridging the gap
The Xploder V5 Media Centre is much more than a cheat system. Now you can watch or listen to digital media content on your main TV via your PS2 and enjoy digital movies, music and pictures through a home entertainment system.
The Xploder V5 Media Centre bridges the gap between Playstation 2 and the PSX Home Entertainment System.
The Xploder V5 Media Centre is compatible with and can play back MPEG (1&2), MP3, JPEG and BMP files from a whole host of mass storage devices such as USB memory cards, portable hard drives and MP3 players*. It’s so easy and fast – simply download the required content to a USB Mass Storage Device via a PC, connect it to the PS2, upload and play the content!
No mass storage device? No problem! Simply plug a USB CD drive into your PS2 and play your content direct from CD-R compiled on your PC. You can stream MP3 music, MPEG 1&2 movies and even digital photos (JPEG and BMP) straight from inexpensive and widely available CD-R discs.
The Xploder V5 Media Centre is future-proof. Thanks to the broadband connectivity, new drivers can be downloaded as they become available for the very latest media formats. Code updates and new game saves are also available for download via the broadband connectivity feature. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a broadband connection, you can upload the latest codes and features to your PC via a normal internet connection, then update your PS2 via the high-speed X-Link cable**. The X-Link software also allows you to transfer game saves between your PC and PS2 memory card, effectively giving you unlimited storage space for saves on your PC hard-drive. The X-Link also opens up a world of possibilities – now you can share your saves with other Xploder users by uploading files to the Xploder website, all thanks to the built-in user community software. For extra ease of use you can now also use the X-Link PC software independently of the PS2, ideal for occasions when the machines are in separate rooms. Connection to multiple websites is now permitted, in the eventuality of one or more sites being inactive. Finally, the latest X-Link software is now backwards compatible and fully customisable, just like a traditional PC programme!
Second to none: Blow Your Games Wide Open
Any cheat system is only as good as its codes and that’s where the Xploder V5 also excels! Over 55,000 cheats are now available, with more than a thousand game saves making it the most comprehensive source of codes anywhere. Now you can have unlimited lives, maximum power, infinite health and unlock all the levels, characters, vehicles and games you want.
The Xploder V5 now has Easy and Expert modes, getting you to the heart of the action – fast! Dynamic cheat code entry, automatic game detection and an intelligent code selection system which ensures that conflicting codes can’t be selected simultaneously with the Xploder V5’s intelligent codes system.
The Easy code input system has been designed to make inputting codes smooth and trouble free. There are four levels of input: via a USB compatible keyboard, direct to the PS2 via the Broadband adaptor, from the internet via a PC using the X-Link cable or using the PS2 joypad. Uniquely, Xploder V5 allows new code input direct to either Expert or Easy modes.
