Looks like there's even greater news today for owners of products from the recently demised GameShark. Apparently Mad Catz Interactive has signed a deal to acquite the GameShark brand and website for a cool $5 million bucks. Word:

GameShark is the industry leader in video game enhancement software, which enables players to take full advantage of the secret codes, short cuts, hints and cheats incorporated by video game publishers into their game offerings. In the twelve month period ended December 31, 2002, GameShark generated revenues in excess of $30 million.

Mad Catz anticipates shipping GameShark products powered by an extensive range of software cheats and hints in March, ensuring continuity of supply at retail locations. The Company has also assumed the management of the highly popular GameShark web site, one of the highest traffic gaming sites on the Internet.
It's great to see such interest from other company's and I hope it proves to be a fruitfull endeavor for them. Now us console cheaters can rejoice in knowing the product will live on!
