The Konami Code

The Konami code is a cheat code found in lots of video games beginning with Konami games like Gradius and Contra. It’s also called the “Contra Code”, “Konami Command”, or “30 Lives Code”.

Wat is the Konami Code? up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-B-A or sometimes up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, enter. In some games it’s start instead of enter. There are lots of variations.

On the PS2 try Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, X, Circle, Start. When in doubt try using the Konami code backwards: A-B-right-left-right-left-down-down-up-up-enter. On cell phones “573” may replace “BA”.

The Konami code is can be used with the Xbox and even Netflix. Check under 'Blu-Ray palyer' or 'Smart TV and Streaming Media Players'.
