    Benja81 We know Nintendo had access to the code for 5.5.1 exploits for almost a year before BotW release (at least)! So why not patch it up with a nice 'security and stability' update before releasing the most anticipated game of the console, maybe of the decade?? Sure they could have been too busy making BotW to care about patching hacks, but the 3DS has released 4 system updates since the Wii U 5.5.1 hacks were made public. Could it really be a parting gift of sorts to those of us that bought the Wii U?

    Nintendo has a history of rewarding their most loyal fans, and while I agree this is a little far fetched, why didn't they patch it, unless they didn't want to? The Wii U was a failure by most standards, yet they know their most loyal fans have spent hundreds, some of us thousands of dollars on the console. I can say if you bought a Wii U, you are one of Ninty's most loyal fans, because not that many people bought the Wii U. Without us, they really would have sunk.

    I also know and Nintendo does too, that as a loyal fan (ok Nintendo fan boy) I'll buy a Switch when I have the money, and I know I'll buy a copy of BotW on it too (as long as they patch up that frame rate issue on TV mode :)), even though I'm playing it right now courtesy of, or at least more easily, because of the mysterious lack of updates.
