    Just got my switch and not even connected to the internet yet as I won't even use online features.. Do you think it'll be worth staying on 1.0.0 or update ?

    Depends if you plan to actually use the Switch?

    The launch games you could likely play without updating, however if you purchase some games in a few months time you would likely have to update to play them.

    Depends on what you define "worth it".

    If you are expecting CFW like the 3DS, it will not be released anytime soon, at least for another 3-4 years. You will miss out games which require higher FW eventually and potentially lots of upcoming features.

    I would say either buy another one now and put it in the shelf waiting for exploits, or buy an used one later with the right FW when exploits are announced.

    I plan to use the switch as normal, I guess your right about some new games will require an update, like a lot of new ones do really. I will stay as I am for the time being as there is no reason for me to personally update right now.

    I wouldn't expect a CFW for a very long time. I could however do as you stated and buy another one for shelf it for a long time. I got my switch for very cheap so another one wouldn't be out of the question. As stated too, I guess I will be forced to update sooner or later :(

    I think 1.0 has no Browser, 2.0 has it (hidden)

    I'd say update, then stay, until they release a game that you really want but requires fw to be updated. At least that's what I'll do to my Switch while waiting for the stuffs :D

    I dont think there are any exploits (If there are any) patched already. So, it should be a good idea to update. The 3ds is 6 years old now, and we only got a decent cfw like 1-2 years ago. So, dont worry about "Stability" updates for now

    If you want any of these features then update, if you want your system to work like is supposed to with in the coming year as features keep getting added, then update, if you wanna play new games that will require updates, then update. If you don't care for any of these things, why did you buy the system anyway? :blink:

    Who says I need online features to enjoy the console? I will enjoy the gameplay itself. Also, if you actually read the rest of the thread, me and many others have stated I will need to update at some point to enjoy newer games. I play my 3DS very often, however, my network never gets turned on as I enjoy the games themselves.

    I read that, stuff already, still not sure why you asked about not updating, when every device manufacture always recommend updating, what benefit do you have for not doing so?

    The reason why I asked is there any benefit added to myself who doesn't use online features.

    I see, I didn't not understand the reason for asking so i apologize for not knowing that sooner. Well i mean i apologize if you felt any hostile from my statement, i was only curious cause i didn't understand. But you said that others already explain what reasons you may want to update for. Still even if you don't or will not use it for online playing games, you should still update cause it makes sure the system that have problems are working properly, as it always says "Increase stability to enhance user experience." :P

    I haven't played online with my wii u since i had it, but i always update, the big one was the gamepad screen on vwii which i enjoy a lot. Not expecting too much with updates for this system yet but i hope something good comes out like maybe chrome cast support or youtube streaming or anything. :)

    No problem, I probably wrote it wrong too :). I wouldn't mind updating, just didn't see the real need to right at the moment due to the improvements not benefiting me directly at the moment. I kept my WiiU up to date too, that was laggy as hell with any update they did unfortunately. The SwitchOS seems pretty slick at the moment, lets see if there updates make it slower etc over time, I doubt it though.

    Well since that 5GHZ AC i haven't notice much of a problem, but the update supposed to give news and eshop access, which is good maybe for buying digital games, and don't forget about region free eshop... umm SHOPPING. To be honest i never purchased a region free game before mostly cause i was concerned of not being able to play much of it with language issue... cause i dunno japanese, but now "Asia English" games exist and that is good. :D



    Still even without direct benefits you may wanna do it to keep the system functioning.
