    If you've been waiting for that mystery firmware 6.0 update, sure to bring stability to Nintendo Switch systems worldwide, then fear not. Nintendo has confirmed that it'll be pushing out the update on September 18th in North America, and early on the 19th if you're in Europe. This update is to prepare for the launch of the Nintendo Switch Online service, and will come with the caveat that once you update, you'll never be able to unlink your Nintendo account from your Switch user profile. After the update is released, the eShop will also be down for maintenance for around 3 hours. This will be further touched upon in tomorrow's Nintendo Direct.

    I really thought 6.0 would have been Nintendo's big update, but it was way more lacking than I ever would have thought.

    I predict that Nintendo's online service will get hacked two weeks after it launches.

    I'm ready to be welmed, most likely in the "under" variety.

    No surprise, honestly. Between FreeShop and the fact that their devices end up hackable no more than 3 months after they're released, I guess they got fed up with people exploiting their poor security.

    Update sounds pretty boring lol. I have no reason to un-link my Switch or MyNintendo Account from one or the other though, so...

    So at this point, is it really even worth it to have an unhacked unit? I mean, Nintendo's rolling out their paid service soon, so how many people are even going to care about being banned?
