    I have yet to get a Switch but my 2 cents are,
    1: Never update a console no mater what (Past experience with the PS Vita, even farther with the good old PSP days, and when the 3ds was still being worked on)
    2: Anything rushed can lead to bad things later. For example, bootrom patch/Hardware revision like with the PS3/X360....

    Don't condone piracy but, I would rather have that in at least another 2 years and let Homebrew abond for a bit. Say what you will but the one's who only want free games are a bunch of ......... or kids that aren't able to buy there games like me when I was growing up.

    I think the devs have missed a big media splash here.

    Would it not be more significant to release the home brew launcher on March 3 exactly one year on from the Switch launch.

    I hope that, the media & any hype will go to hell as soon as possible from Earth - only social media.
    Thanks plutoo & our devs, it's nice job.

    indeed, and it needs the bubble animation in the background XDD


    good point , i admit i probably am among those guys that thought oh look some other hackers came in and announced something now the rest will want to show off what they've got !

    but that probably is not the case at all hahaha.
    but the more options we have/get then the better.

    hope there will no bad blood between them in the long run though and all goes well and no one (from the devs we know who had been working on the switch since its release do not leave us because of that excute team.)

    They’ll be trying to outdo eachother and remain more relevant than the other which benefits the end user so who’s complaining eh?

    There's one thing: don't get too excited.
    Yes, homebrew is coming and it's amazing, but right now it's useless.
    Think about it, there is a lot to work on for homebrews to be created and games to be dumped etc. like the 3ds
    So, I think at least for several months we won't see anything too fancy
    I sure hope they find something like ntrboot tho, for those who updated their switch to play online (like me :P)

    Are you living under a rock?? Games are already dumped, homebrew launcher is coming soon, retroarch is working with multi rom support and sound, multiple emulator cores are getting ported, team xecuter is releasing their hack that will enable cfw in spring...

    What???

    I have a feeling that now that TX has announced their hack that Q and co. are now rushing to get something out so they can be first. Be very weary of these hacks. Make sure you have an eMMC dump before installing anything.

    The only person that is rushing is hedheberg. She is more pissed off than anybody else in the scene, threatening to release a CFW to rival theirs before they do, and if she doesn't, she plans on (very publicly) REing their chip and releasing some free version.

    The problem is that if she does the prior, it will be rushed work and will cause more problems than will fix any, and if she does the latter she will be a huge hypocrite.
