    With the recent news of the kernal released, are you still going to be buying Switch games? For me, no. Going to wait until the kernal exploit and then the eventual hacking begins.

    Yes, because HACKING DOES NOT ALWAYS MEAN PIRACY

    Yeah... I still plan to buy Ultra Sun and Psychic Espers for 3DS. Even if I get em on free shop for free, 3 whopping gigs is overkill. Physical copies of games that are at least 2 gigs are less fuss, muss, mess, and stress.

    Hackers: we found this cool little useless bug in the 1.0.0 firmware version of the Switch

    FFS, I wish devs would keep things quiet about their work, as all it creates is shit posting of threads like this.

    Even with an exploit announced, it could take years to go public, and even then, it may not even be for latest firmware or even allow piracy.

    Piracy still isn't going to be possible in the near future, so yes, if a game releases that I want

    One like just isn't enough, seriously. This "kernal" thing is really annoying.

    Guys, get this straight.
    KERNAL is Commodore OS core for Commodore PET/VIC-20/64/128.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KERNAL

    OS core is called "kernel".

    Yes? I still buy games that I like. I don't pirate everything just because I can?

    Of course I would buy games. Even with the WiiU / 3ds hacked, i still buy games. Last one was Ever Oasis for 3ds and Mario 3d World for the WiiU just a few days ago. Personally, im only interested in emulation.

    [13:05] <@qlutoo> we don't have kernel code exec (yet)

    They have the code, they don't have control of it yet.
    Even if they did, they wouldn't release it.

    You'll still be buying games for a while.

    I definitely don't want my Switch getting banned from online, I have no issue with that being the case on my 3DS given how little I use online on the device. I already use online on the Switch far more often, as such if the Switch does get to a good hacked state, at most I'd add homebrew for oldschool emulators and the like, but I'd still be buying all the good Switch games i'm interested in.

    This makes me wish there was a person that made a fake exploit that seemed so real that people fell for it and then everyone would feel stupid afterwards. I really do. With the Switch I mean. Otherwise, like everyone else is saying:

    It might be years. I don't know why people are freaking out over nothing.

    They successfully messed with the Kernel of the Switch. Potential access? I'm not sure.
