    I know this is a semi pointless thread but what do you think the odds are of nintendo getting lazy and releasing a rushed port of Twilight and someone gaining code execution through it?

    Why would a rushed port of Twilight lead to being able to achieve unsigned code execution?

    All they need is a hypervisor or two to make sure no code runs unsigned (and that their signing tool never gets leaked).

    There are a few gamecube games that can be exploited like colosseum,twilight, and wind waker

    I suppose sandboxed homebrew would be possible, but only if we can get those hacked saves into the GC VC (if it even exists)
    And at that point, why not just make Switch level homebrew?

    why would they rush an old port when they can transfer the HD remake instead which would sell for more?

    They can be exploited on their host platform. That doesn't mean a Switch port would automatically be exploitable

    i never saw anyone from nintendo promising a gc VC, people are just throwing out delusional stuff from afew PR awnsers, imo they will probably just make hd sunshine and luigi mansion and maybe afew more games they own instead of a gc emulator, i cant see the switch having enough power to emulate the gc at all. they will probably just port the games and upscale them and call them "hd".

    I assume that if the switch ever gets hacked like the wii u eventually we will be able to inject our own gamecube isos into the VC

    No, the leaks are baseless clickbait articles

    I'm pretty sure those were never confirmed. Source or it didn't happen.

    Not confirmed, but they have been hinting at it heavily.

    I think the switch will be hacked sooner than the wii u was.
