    Yes, because I'm not a cheap piece of garbage. Piracy sucks, but homebrew is great.

    lol. All i gotta say is dont hold your breath.
    Everyone makes it seems like they got the kernel and rip it apart and are building a custom firmware already.
    They are no where near close to any of that.
    All they have done is gotten information.

    So yea i am still going to buy games. And a few years from now when they hack the switch and your able to run backups. It will most likely be downloads. Then i would see how the cat and mouse plays out then decided if i wanna download the games or keep buying them.

    But as of now. Nothing has happens so idk what the hype is all about.

    ohhh love pirates lol they come up with any excuse.

    paying for it, plays roms.... is piracy.

    just because you want to sugar coat shit, its still end of the day shit.

    aka.

    you want to claim to backup personally owned games, 99.99% of the user using this have no intention of paying for the game.

    A lot more people than you seem to think intend on buying games. A lot of pirates still purchase at least some of their games. And on the 3ds I dumped all my carts and installed as Cia for ease of use and transportation, so yes that is a valid thing people do.

    I still buy games for the 3DS, and will continue to do so.

    So yes, I will buy games for the Switch too, I like to support the company and devs that give me hours of entertainment so they can make more content I will enjoy in my free time. Regarding exploits, I look forward to homebrew, editing save files, and emulation.

    but back to the point.

    all console hacks lead to piracy.

    some may purchase games, some may backup their games, ALOT will not <- but these cards still, make their money because it allows piracy.

    I'm not really a fan of online gaming on nintendo consoles to be honest though, i stick to that on PS and xbox.

    I just realised I never actually answered the threads original question:
    Yes, I will absolutely buy Switch games I deem worthy of buying.

    Will buy games too if the switch gets piracy enabled.
    I hacked my PS3, all 50+ Games i own as physical Copy are on my internal HDD to have them fast launched without any worries about the optical drive, scratches and so on.

    On Switch Side i prefer Cartridges, waiting for "Piracy" to have the current played titles on SD-Card ;)

    I will be buying games on cart. I am a collector after all. if the switch was digital download only id pirate everything.
    Buying a digital version of a game makes me feel like i got nothing for my spent money.... Feels the same as torrenting a game....
    I could do like i did with the wii. buy the game leave it factory sealed and play the pirated version. No harm there since i did purchace it and i get to have a factory sealed version. If only i had a factory sealed Stadium Events for the nes. It sells got about $25,000!!!

    I can't believe how someone can think that dumping the firmware would cause a hack to exist almost immediately to allow piracy.

    in a folder, you skrub?
    No offense, but your a fucking retard. You spelled kernel wrong, you only made an account because you think that "oh the kernal is relesd oh dat mens piracky. r u gnna buy gmaes anymre?" Seriously, piracy isn't the only thing that exists.
