    It's probably high. I think the real question is how many people with V1 switches are willing to hack it who haven't already hacked it.

    Nintendo might as well sue every safety pin, tinfoil, and paper clip maker. Lmao! People are also using phones and pc's as payloaders.

    Even if Nintendo manages to demonstrate that the RCM Loader and its payloads are used to exploit the fusee-gelee vulnerability, this does not imply that it is for piracy, but may be for educational purposes. And even if Nintendo manages to prove that everyone is using the RCM Loader for hacking, that doesn't imply that the culprit is whoever built it. This is the easy part, from here Nintendo's lawyers have to break their heads to be able to sue.

    Not true. Courts also check the purpose of the device. At least here in europe.

    According to the eugh ruling I linked on the second page, the courts have to check what the device is beeing used for (that can go as far as to check the actual customers) and that's what it's all about. Do they use it for legal purposes? Nintendo looses. Do they use it for piracy? Good luck to the shop owners.

    "the evidence of actual use which is made of them by third parties will, in the light of the circumstances at issue, be particularly relevant. The referring court may, in particular, examine how often PC Box’s devices are in fact used in order to allow unauthorised copies of Nintendo and Nintendo-licensed games to be used on Nintendo consoles and how often that equipment is used for purposes which do not infringe copyright in Nintendo and Nintendo-licensed games."

    The only reason I wanted to hack my switch was to get retroarch on it since they canned their freaking virtual console service.
    I was happy about their last lawsuit win since I dont want piracy keeping 3rd party devs from making games for the Switch (was happening to PSP), but they need to stop. I dont want their console without emulation and I'm not paying for their shitty online crap.

    Just a side node: the xbox consoles offer a devmode which can be used to install retroarch on the console (it's a bit limited but the feature is cool nontheless)

    Keep on fighting, brothers.
    Piracy gave us Gamepass, All Access and other ways of gaming for relatively small money.

    If games was cheap and not still $60 for the last 3 years we wouldn't have as much piracy as we have now. I understand why Nintendo is trying to sue the reseller the RCM loader "enables piracy" only a matter of time before they try to go after atmosphere if they are using that logic

    @eyeliner
    As much as I like game pass I'm slowly shifting away from it. $180 a year you can buy most of the microsoft exclusives for half the price and own the game. I'll still keep Xbox Gold and get it at a discounted price but I rather have ownership versus subscription series

    Its not really just piracy, they despise any kind of modification to their software and games also hated homebrew dating back to the Wii. They literally fired some guy months back on Youtube who was working under them just for showcasing BOTW mods lol. This is just them trying to make an excuse effort to purge all exploitable devices. RCM doesn't promote piracy, but it still enables it as a possible end user option, you know behind closed-doors.

    Nintendo, you're the reason people are pirating because your shit is way too expensive.
    €349 only for the Switch and the games are absurdly expensive, €60 and I saw there are a shit ton of paid dlc's. And you're way too paranoid you even sued a Super Mario marathon! You simply sue anything and everyone!

    I'm so glad I didn't buy the Switch as me and my cousin wanted to buy one and each of us will pay half. But it seems Nintendo doesn't want our money ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Next they will be going after people selling jigs. I can understand piracy, not many people can afford many games at £50 each but I don’t partake in such activities I just want to edit my game saves, what’s the crime in that

    If a person from the Netherlands with a much better standard of living thinks this, imagine what we think in Latin America where everything works like shit and things are even more expensive with inflated prices and low salaries.

    A very fair assessment. It really depends on your mileage. If you like to play everything, it's hard to find a fault in it.
    But if you want to keep your library small, sure, purchase games separately is a better approach.

    Then they need to stop selling ports for 60 dollars, and drop the price of their games like every other company does. Also, if I bought a VC game on the Wii, I should be able to play it on my Switch.

    True. Nintendo is such a crybaby I totally lost any of my respect to them as they simply go on "pIrAcY iS dAnGeR0uS aNd wE mUsT sUE aNy0ne!!!!!1!1!" bullshit. If piracy was a serious issue, then a lot of businesses would have gone bankrupt. Nintendo keeps using the law as an excuse and chose a country if the winning % is higher than in other country.

    Even for Netherlands €60 is too much and so far the prices have been kept the same since day one of release.
    Games on other platforms are reduced and or discounted after some time but Nintendo? Holy shit, they are so stubborn!
