Here is an article about just that:

I am not sure whether or not it is related to the PIC micro, however it
appears that the MIT student simply intercepted the signals that were being
transmitted back and forth across the board.  I believe this is probably
very similar to what is done with PS and PS2 modchips -- intercept signals
and modify them in order to play out-of-region and/or backup games.

I'm new to the list... acceptable post? :)
