The GamePigTM Entertainment Device, also known as MFD Game Player, is able to play dozens of different games simply by inserting new Memory Cartridges. Most games star Grunty the Gaming Pig, who first rose to fame in the 2005 interactive entertainment Corporate Swine.

The MFD Game Player hooks up directly to any MFD, allowing the user to play games on their military grade cyber interface. A few cartridges may be found throughout the game, and the player can use their MFD to play those. However, the world continues on around them persistently, so the player can still be killed by varying elements of the environment.

With a very high Hacking skill (or use of the ICE Pick) the player may hack the Game Player, allowing access to all the standard games and gaining bonuses in 3 games (OverWorld Zero, Street Hog and Burro Hog).
