So, how much time do you give to this console until it gets hacked?

    Chill guys, Lets remember that this is Ninty's last chance to get back up. I think that in a 5 year's lifespan should be okay, it could get hacked after that since by then it might be time for a second Switch.

    Why do you want to know?
    Last chance? They're not in that bad a situation, 3DS sales are strong and the Wii U isn't completely abysmal in terms of sales.

    I agree, but Ninty could not afford another Wii U. Yes 3ds sales are up and good, but Ninty cant live only on 3ds sales, specially with freeshop, etc. They really needed this NX (I am so going to miss that name...) and thankfully it is beautiful and I will buy it! I have also hyped many co-workers who will buy it as well, and so will my GF. I hope Ninty does very will with the Switch so that we can get even better games. They honestly deserve a sucessfull Switch.

    I hope the Switch works, as you said they really need it. Personally I think it has a 50/50 chance of being incredibly successful or Wii U level sales.

    For basic stuff like extracting and importing save files, give it half a year or so, with a more complicated home-brew, a year and a half, for pirating and dumping games and/or game mods, give it 2-3 years

    Since BSD is already widely supported on the Tegra K1 and X1 (I'm pretty positive) on the Tegra dev boards. I'm guessing the Switch is as hard to crack as the PS4.

    Until it gets hacked? 2 years.
    Until a hack gets released? Between 4 and 5 years.

    5 years at least. Look at the PS3, as that is not blown wide open to this day. 3.55 is still the only entry point for CFW.

    it's gotta be an android tablet, they couldn't possibly expect people to carry around a gaming-only tablet

    But Nintendo is making this console and their security isn't the best.(previous consoles)

    The Wii is 10 years old and WiiU has practically the same infrastructure/operating system with tighter security, so what make you think the Switch is going to be the same? A lot has changed over the past few years and who knows what their Security Engineers have in place this time.

    They also couldn't possibly release a tablet without a touchscreen. But for some strange reason that hasn't been confirmed.
