In May 2007, CheatCC began releasing a weekly comic strip done by Matthew Walker. The title of the comics, Console Crash Comics, was to symbolize the three Cs of CheatCC and loosely mention the wars between the consoles – Xbox 360, PS3, and the Wii. After 37 strips the comics have been placed on hiatus, with an unclear resume date.


June 2007 marked the beginning of CheatCC's official podcast dubbed C4 Podcast. C4 means Cheat Code Central Crew.


In July 2006, Beckett Media began running a spotlight series based on Cheat Code Central's extensive site content. The magazine, entitled Beckett Cheat Codes Powered by Cheat Code Central, featured some of the website's more popular cheat codes along with some of their reviews, previews, and special features. The bimonthly publication ran for only a year.

Freelance contributions

Cheat Code Central posts exclusive content written by numerous freelance writers. Writers are paid on a per article basis, though they are required to write a minimum amount of trial articles for free in order to prove their skills.


Cheat Code Central has been around for over ten years, but not without problems and controversies. Some companies have retrieved cheat codes from the website and posted them in their own sites and publications. The website was also accused of posting strategy guides from individuals who did not request it. Conflicts were set in court; however, public opinion continues to comment on the issues up until today.[citation needed]
