    MOAR rich.
    Semantics. Seriously.
    I'm just excited that I'll eventually be able to install mods over Breath of the Wild.
    EDIT: To be clear, I'd buy a Switch mod chip / flashcart just for mods. That alone is worth $100 to me.
    I KNOW. SOMEONE ELSE WILL.
    K bye.

    They have done writeups on PS4 hax recently though. Have a feeling they won't do the same for switch but I hope I'm wrong.

    Yet they released a lot for the Wii.

    I can understand them not releasing shit.
    Self entitled pirate kiddies wanting everything handed to them for free.

    The Wii U didn't do so hot, I don't have a lot of hope of seeing anything for Switch, but that's just me *sigh*

    No need to project the negativity onto others.

    I for one don't care about the Switch.
    I only got one to familiarize me self with the system and take a peek at how the innards work.
    But you don't see me complaining about a team who hasn't released much for a while.

    Good plan.
    I like you but in recent times you became such a negative nanny.
    I really hope you can leave that behind.

    Anyway there's no need to keep on complaining about 1 team "not releasing shit", especially when there are other teams who are also actively working on it.
    f0f consists of talented hackers who inspire other hackers to search for similar flaws.
    They do have a contribution to the scene.
    Besides, they aren't forced to make their findings public.

    Besides, why not delve into the Switch security yourself?
    Share your exploits and findings.
    At least you'll be contributing something other then negativity ;/

    I never learned programming, so I wouldn't even know where to begin. I leave it to the people who know what they're doing. I never intended for myself to get so negative.

    Get a DS + a flashcard.
    Install Devkit Pro and write a simple hello world.
    Doesn't matter how ugly it is.
    @Foxi4 has made a simple "valwinator" homebrew on the DS.
    Remember Aurora wright?
    She didn't know shit about programming neither before she started Luma.

    And yet there's already a noticeable bitch fight between the "I want everything for free" and then "I'll pay for the chip" pirates.

    And then there's those of us who just want homebrew/mods. Who needs to pirate when you have a job to pay for games?

    Who needs to pay for games when you own a gamestore ;D
    But yes, there's a small userbase of legitimate homebrew users.
    Along with legitimate backup loader users.

    I like the fact that games can be dumped and executed on hacked consoles out of a digital preservation perspective.
    This is especially true for the old Xbox where XBLive has been shut down 8 years ago.
    There's no way to get title updates or DLC on the machine anymore aside from pirating it and loading it up on a hacked console.

    Not to mention having to play multiplayer using system-link, or hooked to a PC using Hamachi for what amounts to long-distance system-link.

    Actually, FSD's LiNK system is a really neato implementation of Syslink multiplayer.
    X-link Kai, annoying to set up but working miracles.
    Hamachi is something I wouldn't trust.
    Exposing your network to a stranger...

    Dedicated game servers have to be paid for.
    Once there's to little people playing to keep it profitable, they simply disappear.
