    I've got an Android phone running CM14.1 with a moga controller. All the emulators work better then 3ds and the phone was cheaper then a brand new 3DS. Anyone can make an Android game (or app), no hacks needed. I don't have high hopes for the switch. Can console hacking survive?

    Yes, as long as consoles have exclusives.

    I know. But hacks = free games. That's all anyone uses it for these days.

    OP can't see who voted.

    @GBAFail Console hacking is more then just emulators. Things like running Linux on a device that never was suppose to is fun and a lot like to make "legal backups" of their games. Save mangers are a major pro of hacking when your console doesn't backup your saves. Hacked consoles normally have all emulators free and no ads while on Android all of them are either payed or ad filled.

    Let me be clearer, by hacks I mean homebrew. Like games, emulators, etc. Not just pirating games.

    Running linux, save editors, cheats, and romhacks is not considered homebrew?

    Bro, I'm replying to multiple people right now. If my reply is a bit fragmented you'll have to forgive me.

    Technically no for the first and last one. One is loading a new OS via homebrew. Another is modifying an official game via homebrew. They both require homebrew but aren't homebrew themselves.
