    It's not only that.. Also it's about showing that they are defending their IPs. if there is not enough "Defense" it can actually cause issues down the line when other people attempt to use them.

    That's why a lot of fan games and such that are kept low key have no real problem, it can be argued that they didn't know it existed adn all that.

    But once it's getting huge attention, the company can no longer claim ignorance of it. *hence why Blizzard went after the huge Free servers that advertised everywhere, while ignoring the smaller servers that didn't.*

    No, they'd first go after the cables - banning PCs would be self-harm, considering most devs use them to make Switch games. You can't make a game using a cable, though.

    nintendo is the only company fighting homebrew now (even sony caved with hacker one allowing devs to share the exploits after a certain timeframe after being patched) and MS gave us homebrew use on a silver platter no wonder nintendo is the most hated of the 3

    That's a bs excuse for bullying. Nintendo could sell the developer a revokable license for a dollar. That way no one could accuse them of abandoning an ip. They don't do that, because they would rather be bullies.

    Defending an IP and Abandoning an IP are two different things... o.O

    And please, I'm really not sure what you mean by selling the developer a revocable license bit? can you please elaborate?

    You can still do it from a computer and even a smartphone. They can't ban those.

    The RCMLoader is just a piece of hardware that's absolutely useless on its own. How long until they go after exhumer or totaljustice for releasing the patches to run pirated titles? Are they possibly plotting a way to take aim at atmosphere? I mean, it doesn't allow for pirated titles and isn't built using copyrighted material... But it's a custom firmware, right? Following this absolutely busted logic..

    What, exactly, is this tool doing wrong?

    Sounds like The Team Xecuters Takedown - Part II. :P

    Nintendo is being reeaaallly touchy about Switch hacking, more-so than they were about hacks for the Wii U, 3DS, DSi, and even the Wii (of which the Wii is probably the most hacked console EVER, at least for Nintendo). At this point, I wouldn't touch Switch hacks with a ten foot pole (or even a six foot pole, nowadays? :P ).

    Good luck to everyone who decides to mod for the Switch; I guarantee that you're going to have a difficult time doing it. Nintendo has ramped up security for the Switch models, and circumventing even a small fraction will cause Nintendo to, as the All-American Rejects so eloquently put it, "give you hell". Even if they don't file a lawsuit against you, they could lock you out of your account, and possibly disable the modded Switch unit altogether. Until Nintendo doesn't support the Switch anymore, Switch hacks will be EXTREMELY difficult to pull off proper without something going wrong.

    ...Not that I don't approve of Switch hacks, for I do, very much - and not because I approve of piracy (for I don't), but because the homebrew community is very creative. I'm just saying that Nintendo is fighting the homebrew community over Switch hacks. My prediction is that no matter how much they try, Nintendo will eventually lose, because hackers never quit. :)

    Thats wild. I was thinking of the RCM loader part, but now the paperclip jokes make more sense.
    I guess they can go after because its specifically designed to hack the switch. Still lame but its their IP I guess.

    So whats next? Ban jigs or physically tampering our own switch? lol Nintendo needs to put all that energy in making a better console/Online. Only the OG switch models can actually use an RCM loader this is crying over expired spilled milk.
