    Thx m8.I'm trying to blow this up so that modding becomes easier and the users of mods don't live in fear of bans

    I gues on earth.
    Yea. Not gonna happen. As cool as it would be, this will never change.

    Allow piracy and pretty much say to everyone: "Look, our console is at the EOL even before release".

    If Nintendo allowed this then it would be the end of Nintendo since no third party would ever sell titles on a platform where piracy is encouraged.

    Nintendo has a legal obligation to fight modding whether they want to or not.

    LOL

    If they would do this guess how many dev studios will jump ship. I'll give you a hint: many. They are not going to make games for a platform with such an EULA. I guarantee you.

    They ignored my petition to make every game ever free so I don't think this would work

    Is not a matter of
    First an foremost: It is possible to get a company to change its EULA. Secondly if you look at the actual petition the new EULA would allow for mods while keeping Nintendo in control of their intellectual property. This is not an"I just want to do whatever to your console" this is "Hey your hardware and software could be better, let users add to it"

    The issue of unauthorized technology modifications is much bigger than something as unimportant as Nintendo Switch bans.

    If you take a look at the new EULA it allows them to maintain control over sales. None wants to give something they created with years of development for free. If you want things to change you have to be reasonable.

    Honestly, I'm against this. Cfw allows for running our own code, but running our own code can give people advantages during online play.

    I think that being forced to stay offline if we want to run our own code, and being banned for doing so while online, is a fair trade.

    I understand where op is coming from, but I don't agree with it.

    That is why this petition exists to change the END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT for Nintendo

    My point is that Nintendo is not going to change anything without a change to the law, and the law needs to be a blanket regulation that doesn't just apply to Nintendo.

    The best way to get the law changed isn't to talk about Nintendo banning kids from online play who, half the time, were probably trying to pirate their games in the first place. Instead, we should focus on the real and absurd issues happening across technology companies.

    Well you got to start somewhere. If this petition gets big it could help in the grand scheme of things
