    Don't spawn more speculation. It's a bit odd what they are doing.. But I feel like they're patching some more serious exploits.

    /offtopic I hear they just recently patched SpeculationHax

    /ontopic They probably realized its not really worth their time to patch userland exploits As its actually a Good thing for the System to have Homebrew in a sense Although Maybe they can't fix them without serious revisions to the code

    They patched two piracy exploits and one homebrew one. (memchunkhax2, ntrcardhax, and ironhax)
    Don't know where you're getting your misinformation.

    10.5 was literally only to fix a bug causing corrupted data.

    How great would it be if Nintendo had an AppStore like Apple and Android and WindowsPhone - and the devkit was free or cost a little bit. There would be thousands of fully-featured games you could buy for a few dollars. The way to make a system or game last is through user-generated content keeping it fresh. For example, the Elder Scrolls games stay active for ages with the mini devkit they have for users to create their own content and quests. And Minecraft has been popular for years and years.

    There would be no motivation to exploit the console for homebrew, and lack of devs for homebrew would set piracy WAY back (most piracy exploits seem to come from discoveries by homebrewing devs).

    I think that idea somewhat existed in the PSvita. It never really took off...

    Nintendo won't do that because of all the bloatware that would end up on the store. They're very selective about the devs they pick, partly because of quality control and partly because that's how they used to do it in the industry, and that's what the big N wants to stick with.

    Apple manage to moderate their content. Big N could do that too.

    That's why the appstore is filled with shitty Chinese cash grabs that copy a popular game and throw in 1000000 microtransactions.

    That's true. I hate the ones with ads. They could always be a lot stricter than Apple (only genuine games, not ones filled with ads or microtransactions).

    that might turn off potential developers too actually. Flappy bird took off and it had loads of ads. But the idea of having a better, and open appstore for nintendo still is a good idea, if they do it well

    Nintendo is too stuck up to actually care about smaller devs, they're just looking for the devs that stick to their formula.

    Or make them loads of money.
