    That's pure conjecture, though. The only way we could possibly know definitively is if we could somehow look into an alternate version of reality and see the results after a console generation with AND without piracy simultaneously, with nothing else changed

    Piracy was available for the DS and Wii fairly early on but that didn't stop them from becoming the second best and sixth best selling consoles ever respectively. While piracy was one of the factors for the Dreamcast's failure was piracy, it was no where near the main factor.

    I am hoping we can get cartridge games working without needing to update FW.

    Hi everyone, my first post on this forum :).

    Just wondering, I’m seeing a lot of people on 2.x, 3.x, 4.x firmware and a very few on 1.x.

    So my question is, will we have a real long term support for 1.x firmware ?
    I’ve seen somewhere that 1.x is the best firmware and will be the first one to get exploited via « jamais vu ».

    Are the « hackers » confident to have CFW on that version that will be maintained in the future ?
    Won’t they more focus on 2.x and 3.x which are TrustZone hackable and Homebrew ready (for 3.0.0) ?

    Thanks.

    I wonder why the homebrew scene for Switch move so slow? Usually after we got the first homebrew running people would had port all emulator to it already but we hadn't see even one emulator running yet.

    Is it possible to develop an application that can transfer files between the Switch and computer through USB?

    I would try to do this myself, but I never learned how to interact with a USB device before.

    Dumb question but doing the whole block the updates thing. Will that block us from downloading anything or playing online?

    Excuse the question if it feels dumb, please:

    When one redeems the gold coins of a physical game to his my.nintendo account, can the same cartridge be redeemed to another my.nintendo accoutn as well?

    If not, doesn't this mean that the NSw can write data on the cartridges? Does this consist of an entry point in order to gain low access to the system for exploits etc?

    Do you really think nintendo would allow you to register the same game in multiple consoles?

    If we could do that people would share codes online in order to create an excessive number of coins from one purchase

    What happens is every cartridge has an ID, be it some sort of serial or whatnot, that is likely also listed on Nintendo's servers. (Previously, 3DS games came with an extra leaflet with a code printed on it, don't they still do this?) When someone redeems their gold coins on MyNintendo, the site checks that ID off the list.

    It's the same system that prepaid eShop/game/steam cards use.

    BTW, I assume that the CFW SciresM is working on is futureproof? As in, one it's installed, no system update will delete it?

    I doubt it. CFW on 3DS was not flawless until an ARM9 boot was developed
