This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.

The GameShark is one of the many cheat devices released on the Nintendo 64. The later "Pro" versions include a parallel port for firmware updates and advanced code creation, which many v3.3 units disabled to reduce costs. It also works as a pass-through NTSC region adapter by fitting all consoles or games.

Unused Graphics

Hmmm...
To do:
Rip these resources.

Some of the resources from the PlayStation version, like button icons, are still present in the Nintendo 64 version.

Present at 0x1A1D0 in the GameShark Pro V2.0 is some text related to the card reader found on the back of earlier GameSharks. Since Datel never released any of the cards, both the text and the card reader go unused.

Revisional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Screenshots

Later versions of the GameShark added support for newer games and more preloaded cheats. Pro versions added a much more detailed menu.
