    Compared to the Wii U, the Switch just doesn't have a good library of games yet. It could also be years before backup-loading is possible on the Switch, assuming it ever happens.

    I skipped the switch. For now. Will perhaps buy it this Winter. Like everyone else has said. It could take years before anything cool will happen with the switch.

    It should also be noted that a browser exploit exists for v5.5.2 of the Wii U now. It's not very reliable, but it's enough to install Haxchi.

    Never did I say ''all'' are remakes. I said its a remakefest. Which it is. Dont be so butthurt because you keep playing the same games.

    You just wrote 2 system sellers basically.
    Also...

    Mario Kart
    Pokken
    and.....
    Zelda BOTW (technically a remake)
    Street Fighter
    Lego City Undercover
    Puyo Puyo Tetris
    Shantae
    SineMora
    Fast Rmx
    Axiom Verge
    Minecraft
    Rayman Legends
    Binding of Isaac
    Azure Striker
    Mighty gunvolt
    Terraria
    Steamworld dig
    1001 Spikes
    Shovel Knight

    And these are just from the top of my head.

    EDIT: And yes I understand these are technically not remakes.

    They have a hack bounty now, so that will add some extra time. If I found an exploit, I'd happily sell it, rather than get a little praise but also Nintendo on my ass.

    selling exploits is greedy to me for example if i were to find one i would not use it for money since i would rather have hacks then money even if its alot of money. hackers just use the money you get from your job and don't be greedy.

    If it's just for exploits, get a Wii U because it's blown wide open. The Switch will take a long time to get to that point.

    If it's for playing new games, the Wii U is already end-of-life.

    It's not greedy. You aren't owed an exploit. They aren't keeping anything from you.

    Would you still say that even if you were the one who put all the time and effort into researching and developing the exploit?

    Well that effort could be used to do cool stuff with the switch or money every one getting and exploit sounds better to me than one person getting alot of money. The person who found the exploit can choose its up to them if they want to share some thing or be greedy.

    Exactly. I made developed homebrew apps (none of which are nearly as difficult as discovering an exploit), and I spent hundreds of hours on several of them. Hell, I was still working on SysCheck HDE until a devkitPro update broke everything. I didn't owe the apps to anyone.
    Give me your computer when you're done with it. If you sell it instead of giving it to me, you're greedy.

    Why is it greedy? You take your time and effort to find the exploit. It's your choice

    if they doing hacking as a hobby they problay would not want to sell the exploits as you would want to do stuff with the switch with it and I don't see how you can make it into a job by selling your exploits as they aren't that common

    Iknow it would be really hard but wouldn't a hacker want to hack the switch to get into it rather than just for money its like picking a reward do they want switch homebrew or money

    What they want is their own business. And it wouldn't matter if it was fun. If you like your job, are you greedy for getting a paycheck?
