    the metaphor was removed bc it was 7 am when i wrote it.

    Now its 9 am,i slept well,and i wont stick to bad metaphors anymore.

    Do you think switcheroo is gonna be easy to hack? I mean,ninty is pretty lax when it comes to hacking.

    Or do you think itll be like 360,where you can only hack by opening up the console. (i say only because theres exploits on the DS without hardmod )

    Nintendo is copying every other other game company when it comes to paid online. What do you think theyll do with hacking?

    this is only a speculation thread anyway :P

    No, none of the chips are the same. The Wii had better security than the gamecube. But it was smilare enough that it got patched on the Wii drive first. Later Team Twizzers found the bug in Zelda. And after that the trunca bug was found and pandoras box opened. I would say it's actually mistakes by Nintendo rather than the chips being "same".

    Let's look at the switch for a second... We have all new hardware, a fresh start. A familiar ARM architecture which is pretty well-documented we could possibly exploit. Possibly new OS exploits to find. An SD card to run them from. And hopefully they fuck-up and give us a webkit-enabled browser later on.

    I'm hopeful the Switch gets hacked for homebrew within a week or two. Piracy in a few years, but give us homebrew.

    Except Homebrew always comes at the cost of enabling piracy.

    Yes, but look how long Homebrew Launcher took to before piracy came in?

    Look at how far the homebrew scene progressed after signature patches were enabled though (.cia vs .3dsx). The 3DS HBL didn't really offer much, and it required an expensive game, or a long process to execute. HANS was the only thing interesting about it.

    Many people used HBL to get further into hacking the 3DS, that's all.

    Gambia, The
    Best scenario is the Switch gets in the First year hacked because then there will be a big Hardware Sale. More Hardware = more games.

    Lol highly unlikely. The Switch won't be hacked early on, because people involved in the scene will not disclose info that could damage the console at an early stage of its lifespan. Look at the Wii U, it was hacked a while ago, and only now things are progressing. The same applies to the 3DS, it was only last year where CFW is easily accessible, and the 3DS launched in 2011.

    I'll put this simply for everyone. Stop dreaming of piracy or homebrew this year, because we will not be seeing anything released. If anything, we'll just be getting POC, or just some wiki documenting the Switch.

    I wish not fast. I mean, Nintendo and Nvidia did the software and the hadware, and seeing what happend to 3DS and WiiU don't expect them to not dedicate much time to security en this new console. They seem to know what they are doing this time, and I wish luck for them in this area.
    3 years before homebrew would be good enought.

    I'm still curious about the OS itself. If it somehow have an Android bootloader or something in those parts. It can get interesting very quickly. But I don't expect any homebrews on it for a while. Also I'm curious how the USB 3 is recieved if you connect a computer to it.

    The Switch is probably going to much harder to hack than Wii U as far as browser exploits
    But then again there's loads of other ways to hack a Nintendo console

    It would actually be really bad if it would be hacked in the first year because 70% of the people wouldn't buy any games and the developers would just stop making games for it.

    R.i.P.

    This thread says hi http://gbatemp.net/threads/piracy-common-myths.344858/ The DS and Wii sold well over 100 million units, and were pirated to high heaven, that's a myth.
