    It's happening already, two exploitable consoles for $800 and $750 respectively.

    https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fr...do+swi.TRS2&_nkw=nintendo+switch+3.0&_sacat=0

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-S...787967&hash=item440eb81c0e:g:YUUAAOSwTf9ZXnt5

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/FW-3-0-or-...hash=item1c9a0207dc:m:mI2vkwwq7s9ualm6JvcffeQ

    A douche move from the scalpers' part, to say the least, and it's only going to get worse as 3.0.0 consoles will get rarer and rarer, I'm afraid. No way in hell should anyone have to pay that much for a Switch, it only enables scalping. *sigh* Perhaps it'd be best for me to forget about that avenue and find something to sell to offset the costs, I don't expect the prices to get any better.

    It's pretty much guaranteed it won't look exactly like that.

    The asking price is high, but the selling price is not, the highest one with 3.0 mentioned in the title on ebay.com was on december 16th for $360.85 Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey Wired Pro Controller FW 3.0 for HomeBrew

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-S...125635&hash=item3afac0779c:g:igQAAOSwBkRaNFMJ

    Which could just as easily have sold to someone trying to get hold of a Switch for Christmas.

    Not gonna hold my breath. Unless I can find someone willing to trade something for an exploitable Switch, like my hacked Wii U with CFW, I don't know. Heck, maybe even my laptop from 2011.

    Someone just sold a 1.0.0 in Australia relatively cheap. (508.40 USD/£375.83)

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Super-Ra...958542&hash=item2f1215b415:g:axkAAOSwzRlaIw5a

    Ok it's slightly more than you can buy a switch for, but when you take into account the 10-20% fee that ebay + paypal takes then the seller isn't making a huge profit. Certainly not 3x - 5x. Plus that is for a 1.0 which is supposedly more hackable.

    If switch hacking kicks off then maybe the market will support a higher price, but right now the people selling at extreme prices are just not selling. With Christmas over the market won't be pushed up by guilt purchases.

    Yeah, I don't think I'm going to go that route, I have no way of paying for it in full outright, at least, not without getting a more stable job. As it stands, the only way would be for trading one with something of equal or greater value, like again, I've a Lenovo laptop from 2011 that still works fine. But unfortunately, I doubt anyone who has an exploitable Switch, would want to part with it, at least, not without exorbitant price gouging. I'm starting to feel sick to myself.

    I'd only expect to make a profit if the switch scene is worth buying into, but that isn't clear yet. The risk for me would be holding on to it and switch scene becoming worse than the DSi scene and losing money on it when I eventually shift it.

    I don't even have the money to get a second one, given that I'm in debt thanks to a college career that never took off, and a dead end job whose boss won't give me full time hours, makes me want to just quit and find a real job. If I had the money, I'd have gotten a second Switch yesterday.

    Well you could sell your existing one, it still has some value. But you do have to make the decision not to play any new games. Not a problem for me as I'm not going to be buying any switch games (beyond pokemon tournament dx and I doubt I'll play it).

    If the exploit release doesn't come soon then I might not even bother keeping it, there are too many other things I want to play with.

    Not an option, my brother paid halfsies on the Switch, so he's a co-owner and has game saves on it, so it's not an option. I'd rather trade something else, i.e something I don't use, like my old laptop still in good condition. I've only used it once in the past five months.

    Where do I find our firmware version?
    The only info I can find online says it's listed under the spot it says update available (like in the pic someone posted earlier) but mine doesn't say it there. It says there is an update but no current firmware listed

    From the first page...

    BTW I watched the Q&A section at the end of https://media.ccc.de/v/34c3-8941-console_security_-_switch and it's pretty unclear whether you need to update to 3.0. You certainly need either 2.0 or Tetris to get into a browser, which if you don't have either then your only option might be 3.0. But they only skirted around the answer and failed to answer the direct question about why 3.0 and not 2.0, one of them smiled when the question was asked. Maybe they just want everyone to buy pokemon tournament dx, like when a respected hacker suggested that hannah montana was an upcoming exploit game on the DSi for a joke.

    It's me. And it's on the way.
    I have a couple more. Just listed one at 578 usd
    I paid 70 usd more on purchasing rest ones than the one I just sold.
    But may check if new year 10% off code whether available in your country.
    Get in quick if anyone wants.

    Well, once scalpers find out about 1.0.0 firmware being the best firmware for hacking and potential EmuNAND support, the prices will definitely soar high.

    This is why I bought 2 switches at launch. Both still on 1.0. If you think they're rare now just wait until the hacks get developed for the end user

    And it's why I hope every single one of those scalpers gets ripped off.
