The Xploder, aka the Xplorer, is a cheat device created by Future Console Design. According to them, the cartridge is fully backwards compatible with the GameShark and Pro Action Replay. It also has the ability to use its own proprietary codes that allow cheat features not possible with older systems. The name is owned by Fire International, but the original software was likely purchased by Pelican Accessories for use as the Playstation Codebreaker.

History

Wayne Beckett, whom once worked at Datel and was involved in the development of their Cheat devices, such as the Game Buster, is the Father of the Xploder. In 1997 he established his own company, Future Console Design. It developed exclusively for the Blaze Label.The first Xploder appeared in summer 1998 for the first PlayStation.

Fire International maintained a German subsidiary which filed for bankruptcy in 2002. The German site was closed; but all Xploder codes remain with former partner www.mogelpower.de.
