Hi Relztrah, welcome to the TOG public forums
The 'cheats' you're talking about are also available for PC games. We're specifically talking about multiplayer cheats here. The words are the same but Singleplayer 'cheats' are a different world. Multiplayer cheats go against what the game makers intended. Many game manuals include info on how to use things like God Mode
and how to access Developer Mode
plus many many more options. All of these are fine (and SAFE!) to use and many players use these as learning tools to progress through games. The game makers know this and many help us by supplying the relevent codes
Just so you know, SINGLEPLAYER CHEAT CODES WILL NOT
WORK IN MULTIPLAYER SERVERS unless
the server you're playing on allows this, or the player is using a hack. Developers attempt to prevent this kind of thing in the multiplayer portion of their games for obvious reasons.
Thanks for bringing up singleplayer cheats, I didn't think to mention this.
I hope this clears up the big difference between the two.
