    Last week, I bought a cheap game code from internet. Now my console has ben looked from the eShop, internet,.. When I launch the eShop, It shown that the console has been restricted by nintendo.
    Already contacted Nintendo and the answer is THEY WILL NOT UNBAN MY CONSOLE.
    What should I do now? Really upset right now.

    Once the cfw comes out there probably will be a way to unban using a second switch, but i don't think there's really anything you can do right now. Also where did you buy the code, it would be good to know to not have anyone else make this mistake.

    Never buy codes from third party sources. It was probably bought with a stolen card.

    I Bought it from psngames.org (SUPER BOMBERMAN R) and Taobao (Zelda). Dont know which one causes my console banned. Dont be foolish like me guys.
    Hope CFW will be released soon.

    Hmm, you're right. I'm gonna buy physical one and play it offline for a long time till CFW release.

    If you were unaware of the consequences at the time of purchase, and Nintendo refuses to unban your console, assuming your in the US, contact the FTC's Bureau of Consumer protection.
    It is completely illegal, under US law, for Nintendo to bar access to goods and services, provided you were legitimately unaware that it wasn't a genuinely-sourced code.

    Although, now that I think about it, Nintendo has a history of not giving a shit about the law.
    For example, they don't honour fair use law when it comes to media coverage of their games, and they don't natively provide refunds for eShop items.

    They are codes, "After purchase you will receive the game in form of an account with prepurchased game (NOT a code).You will put it on your console and download the game from it, then switch back to your own profile to play it. It will be exactly the same as retail disk version with same features and no additional restrictions"

    That is against Nintendo's EULA, stolen or not.

    That is the most ludicrous system I have ever heard!
    Why the actual fuck don't they just provide you with a download code?

    Then that's fine, Nintendo won't care about that.
    But logging in to another user account, oh boy!
    Nintendo will ban you instantly.
