Play As Smoke?: This code is a fake and does NOT work! It was rumored (from many websites), that you could unlock Human Smoke and play as him. How could this even be? Human Smoke did not show up until MKII. And the code to do it (shown below) says you will hear "Toasty", which was first heard in MKII, not MK1.
The Code: "At the title screen press Up, Up, Left, Right, A, B, A, B, Up, Down, Up. If done correctly, you should hear "Toasty" Now pick Raiden, and Smoke will be at your control."
