    Again Nintendo is wasting time with courts to protect the switch, instead of making the switch worthy.

    Nothing to change..nothing really, if the person wants to download free games they will find ways to do it. Always going to be 2 heads of homebrew

    it's understandable as to why Nintendo took the aggressive route, as they do with almost everything else anyways, this time.
    people profiting off of something that enables piracy probably wasn't making them very happy.

    that being said, it's sorta useless. the people interested in hacking their switch are the same people that probably know how to use a VPN.

    They didn't even bother getting rid of any important sites that host actual game files. They just got rid of buying jigs and certain CFW. You can still get .nsp and .xci files in a crazy amount of places.

    Yeah, that's sad. ROM hacks is a thing for me anyways. Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii and other Mario ROM Hacks. Mario Kart Wii CTGP.

    Back in the PSP days, some homebrew games were really quality like TetriAbetes and ZeldaROTH, aswell as homebrew apps that turns your normal battery in an autoboot battery.
    I had 3 pirated games if you count PS1 games as retro piracy lol and a PSP game that I didn't even finish half of it because I was too addicted to TetriAbetes lol.
    I still haven't finished Chinatown Wars and I don't feel like playing it anymore anyways.

    Also now that the Wii shop is closed, you have to pirate WiiWare and VC XD

    I mean for piracy, makes sense. But blocking stuff isn't very fun.

    VPN's are good tho.

    What does this mean for people who bought SX OS?
    Will they stop working on it now?

    That’s a bit harsh for the many SXOS users!

    Updates will be obtainable..

    Yes, because <0.1 percent of SXOS users are totally hurting the majority of users and devs. Oh wait, not it they're not. How much is Nintendo paying you to be their white knight?

    yeah japan sure did shoot themselves in the foot with the Pokemon VGC by banning as a jailable offense cheating (while other countries continue to gen their mon cheating will always remain rampant in the VGC's as long as Pokemon are carefully genned for legality checks Japan will be at the bottom of the barrel every year from now on :rofl2:

    not like any of us are just here to port OSes to it. or are just trying to allow people who got a free switch to use it as a reasonable pc. or... y'know... emulators? utilities? Python? CVEs?

    that's a very unreasonable assumption you made

    Expected it tho after they are chasing and taking down fans their videos for zero reason. Next time they'll drag anyone to the court who has Mario or Princess Peach tattoos on the butt cheeks.

    I always thought stuff like this was weird, but I have some odd ideas (such as all games on a console being accessible for a subscription (or you can buy forever) and devs get paid based on the the time spent in that game. Example I payed ten bucks a month and played two games. Game a for 3 hours and game b for 7. Distribute royalties accordingly

    I see you’re point, but there’s the people that would never of purchased the game and download it to have a little look, end up appreciating the game and becoming a future customer
