Do you remember the PSP? It’s been ten years since it’s been with us, replaced by the PS Vita and later, by nothing, but it still has fans of games that have since been remastered like ‘God of War: Ghost of Sparta,’ ‘Monster Hunter Portable 3rd,’ ‘Daxter,’ or ‘Gran Turismo.’ This particular title sold nearly five million copies worldwide, became a technical showcase compared to the Nintendo DS back then, and captivated fans of the series. Or rather, it continues to captivate them even today.

Some video games hold secrets that may never be revealed in our lifetime, like the box under the Eiffel Tower in ‘Trials Evolution.’ Its contents might only be known, perhaps, in 2113, but most secrets eventually come to light, sooner or later. Such is the case with ‘Gran Turismo’ for PSP, where 14 years after its release, a couple of cheat codes were discovered that had remained completely in the dark until today.

User pez2k revealed on Reddit that they were inspecting the game’s scripts using a tool developed by another ‘Gran Turismo’ fan out of sheer curiosity. They came across two lists of buttons in one of the main scripts and decided to input them on the main screen to see what would happen: one unlocked and added all cars to your collection, while the other granted 99 million in credits. Not too shabby.

If you have the game handy and want to try, be careful, because it’s not that easy: to unlock the entire game, first, you have to hold Start, Select, and R simultaneously. Then input Up, Right, Left, Left, Square, Up, Right, Right, Up, Triangle, Right, and Up. For the credits, after holding Start, Select, and L, press Down, Square, Down, Left, Right, Triangle, Right, Square, Up, Down, Up, and Down.

I bet the game creators are now saying, “Oh, we forgot to delete those.” Quite a wonder, no doubt. What’s next?
