    yet every console that is hacked has led to piracy from day one (practically)

    It was on the home page, so I thought I'd drop in. But, yes, if I had one, I would buy games for it, and not pirate it.

    Paying for it doesn't mean piracy. Could be used for backups instead of carrying cartridges.

    Paying for a game you already own is pointless.

    No but it doesn't mean you're not allowed to make it happen. As long as they are for yourself and yourself only, there's nothing wrong. And before you say, modding a console is not an illegal action. Any product you own, you have the right to do as you see fit with it as long as it's not being used for wrong doings such as suspicious online activities.

    Honestly speaking, if you plan to buy a console just because of hacking, or you're planning to NOT buy one just because of hacking, there's something wrong with you.

    Just enjoy the product, and if you like it, support the developers so the can make more :)

    hacking is just a bonus. But the main reasons are to enjoy the console what games it has to offer

    I bought the original Wii, PSP, PSTV, and a second 3DS just because of hacking, but still occasionally pay for 3DS games with Ever Oasis being the most recent.

    While I don't yet own a Switch, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has already been preordered and a more concentrated effort to acquire one will likely be made once Super Mario Odyssey hits.

    It doesn't matter I am just curious why someone not interested in a product would be on a forum about that said Product. There is nothing wrong with it. I am just really curious.
