    Can we download the Switch firmware and update the Switch through USB just like the PS4?

    Confirmed? There goes my plan of prepping for possible Hax.
    Then i will be resorting to buying physical carts instead if it's like the 3DS.

    Almost sure. No Nintendo console has ever have a update system via USB. Only thing you can do is update it using Internet. Hax is soo far, hackers have to investigate how this console works and all... And I don't see a 'plan' upgrading using USB... ?

    I see.
    I will be depending on this community to list down available firmware.
    Current plan:
    One Switch for Hax. Another Switch to play.
