    It was every single 'hacker dude' saying update to 3.0.0, save for one. Even still today. They want end users in a nice neat tiny little box where they couldn't get all unethical-like. It's a bait and Switch. The problem is that if nobody is working towards an emuNAND type solution outside of 1.0.0, which you would figure a top priority, (although probably not even a choice right now) eventually everyone who's updated won't really even have a Switch anymore; just an expensive, stunted homebrew platform that few will want to write anything for, and shouldn't actually be used as a portable as it's ridden with crippling battery bugs.
    It is early on but the fact is the Switch scene is already a disaster and will be for a long time because Nintendo eventually got it together and now have a very secure console on shelves. If you haven't already, you will need to buy another.

    :shit:

    Happy f'n new year. :P

    I love piracy, But I wouldn't get any games seeing that NN is gone and TPB might not be available when you can play your "BACKUPS"

    Somewhere, over there!
    There are viable options if you look hard enough.

    Also just to mention again for those looking. I got a 3rd console on 3.0.0 from Scan Computers the other day, was the Neon Console that came with it. Wasn't expecting it and wasn't bothered as it was a gift but the receiver is VERY happy :)

    When did you order the switch from scan and when did they deliver?

    He said the 26th dec. They use couriers like DPD so it would mostly likely be next day delivery.

    At least we can play a version of Doom that runs at more than 20 to 30 fps.

    I can wait. Updating is always an option. Downgrading is not.

    I didn't notice the reply somehow. So now I am waiting on two switches and a Pokemon Tournament DX. The splatoon 2 will probably just get returned unopened, if the basic one turns up on a low enough firmware.

    If it's on a low enough firmware, I could buy it off you.

    If I don't need it then I'm not opening it because game will only take returns in store if it's been unopened.

    If it's opened then I need to return it by post and even then they say it must be "unused", so at the least I pay postage but at worst they say it's used by turning it on to check the firmware. I'm only willing to take the risk if the scan one turns up >3.0 So if you can find out without opening it then you can have it for what I paid (£319.99) plus tracked + insured postage.

    I ordered a grey one from scan, because I prefer it to the neon. I kinda hope that scan don't have a warehouse of old neons but new stock of greys... Fingers crossed.

    I live in the US, but I'm not sure if it'd work given how far away you live, shipping, whether or not I could trade to mitigate costs *sigh* IDK. People have been giving exploitable consoles a 300 to 500% markup on price, so maybe I'd best not.

    Ah, a bit far. I'm in the UK. I've not seen any evidence that people are willing to pay more for an exploitable console yet. I obviously don't want to make a loss, but I'm ok selling it so that it covers my costs. If I put it on ebay I'd have to increase the price to cover the ebay fees, which is why I was just going to return it if I didn't need it.

    Obviously if in the next few days there is a buying frenzy on ebay of 3x to 5x the price then I would reconsider.
