    Switch in handheld mode has roughly the same rawpower as WiiU + more modern architecture + much more RAM.
    Switch docked has much more power.

    I think your are mixing FP16 (WiiU) and FP32 (Switch) numbers here.
    WiiU is 176gflops FP32.
    Switch numbers are correct.

    I though the dock only allowed to plug in tv, not increase its power

    That's a brand new game. If you're thinking about 3d world...
    That game's not open world.

    Buy a wii u if you've got the money for it. The Wii U's anus is blown wide open. It's ready for an sdcard full of HB. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Don't say things like that. It was a very unpleasant image.

    Skyrim has been on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC (again), all before coming to the Switch. It's the biggest remake ever.

    Wii U is the best Nintendo console at the moment, bar none. If home-brewed, you can play all NES, SNES, Gamecube, Wii, and most N64 game on it. You even get the New Breath of the Wild on the Wii U. So you can basically play every game Nintendo has ever made over the past 30 years on the Wii U. The only games you can't play on the Wii U are the relative few that are on the switch right now. So... 1000's of games on the Wii U, or 5-10 games on the switch? It's an easy decision. Wait 3-4 years for the Switch to mature with a larger game catalogue, and possibly a home-brew option by that time.

    IDK about you but the Wii U is really an amazing console when it's hacked. As xpoverzion said, you can play almost every game Nintendo has released, except for those on obscure hardware, 3DS or Switch. If the Switch can't emulate Wii or GC the Wii U will stay my favourite home console.

    Just got a used wiiu for only 100 euro. Pro controllers for 12 euro from China.
    What i play is Zelda botw, only that game is already word the investement. Its like 200+ hours of gaming. And Mario kart online, pikmin 3 and donkey kong country are my face after that. My Xbox one is eating dust.. when time is ripe ill switch to the later Nintendo console.

    Bug bounty hunter is a job/thing in 2017. My friends quit his job in the security firm to be a full-time bounty hunter, which earns 3x more than his previous job. And if you are really good at doing this, making money can never be so easy.

    But still people can release the exploit after they got the money from the bounty, which is a win-win situation here. Nintendo will fix those damn bugs at some point anyways, not getting some cash and have them released to the public is just stupid.

    Not true, if you release the exploit afterwards Nintendo will own your, your children's, and your children's children's asses in court

    Not if you release it to Nintendo through Hackerone, via legal means confidentially. Then you get paid for your efforts.

    And they knew it was you who released the exploit not just some other guy discovered the exact same bug separately how? Yeh I knew you'd need to sign some NDA stuff but if you are good enough to find an exploit, it won't be difficult for you to leak it anonymously.

    I suppose, but you'd have to make sure there's absolutely no way your Hackerone account could be connected to whatever method you use to publish the exploit
