OAK BROOK, ILLINOIS (AP) At a recent press conference, McDonald's CEO Jim Skinner announced that thousands of McDonald's fast food restaurants would be offering Playstation 2 Cheats as free prizes along with every purchase of a Big Mac. "We are very excited by this promotion. Our corporate surveys show that 78% of McDonald's customers spend more than 22 hours a week playing with their Playstation 2. That's even more time than they spend eating our hamburgers!"

Sony Computer Entertainment president and chief operating officer Kaz Hirai was on hand to announce the Playstation 2 Cheats at McDonald's program. Mr. Hirai announced, "The Playstation 2 cheats that we have developed specially for the McDonald's offer go way beyond the scope of ordinary cheats that our Playstation players normally find on the internet. The McDonald's cheats will open up whole new gaming possibilities and increase the level of action of every Playstation 2 game by a hundredfold. I don't want to spoil the surprise by giving too may details now, but I will say many of the cheats will treat gamers to seeing genuine blood and guts pour out of their Playstations during action games. This is a real improvement over what has been available until now."

Upon hearing the news of the Mcdonald's Playstation2 cheats, Cliff Beatty - a 45 year old man who lives in his parent's basement - said, "This is the best thing to happen in my life since my Dad removed the training wheels from my bike! I put in a lot of hours on my Playstation. To be honest, I've never figured out how to find any Playstation 2 cheats on the internet… I'm not very smart. But I do like to go down to McDonald's every day for a couple of Big Macs, some French fries and a Coke."

"I usually bring back the 2nd Big Mac to my bedroom and eat it while playing the latest games on my Playstation. My Dad says that I'll never amount to anything, but I don't care. I love my Playstation!"

The new Playstation 2 Cheats will be given away starting next month at participating McDonald's.
