    If this was the first time, that's fine. But typically if someone comments they snagged a game or update or something that was quickly then pulled from the stores they're bound to attract the attention of others who want them to dump or copy it in some way.

    Well done Nintendo, with such powerful code interpreter people could run unlicensed copies of Super Mario Bros.

    I don't understand these Indie devs who try things like this, or make their games <current Nintendo platform> exclusive, then surprised Pikachu face when their games are taken down or are otherwise forgotten and lost.

    Dev’s gonna be lucky if this doesn’t get them sued and/or maybe even blacklisted from releasing games on Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft’s platforms, lol. Deliberately hiding stuff from cert teams (and likely breaking rules from various release/distribution contracts in the process) is pretty egregious and doesn’t happen that often.

    I'd be sadder about it if he didn't use it as an excuse to flog his 40$ closed source ruby game engine.

    I am sure that we will see it back in the eshop, but this time the "easter egg" will be a dlc.
    That will teach them that learning isn't free.

    An interpreter by itself does not constitute a vulnerability, but it greatly increases the attack surface.
    And in the case with the Switch and its ASLR, it actually makes a userland exploit possible (see webkit).

    well that sucks like i understand on one hand because of the BASIC computer fiasco on 3ds (which was only userland iirc) but nintendo probably got their rep (and possible future employees) went down the shitter nintendo has to learn people die and they need to replace those employees game design is a dying art as it is the devs had a good idea but the higher ups at nintendo Ltd in Kyoto are probably filled with stale grumpy Japanese men (you know how racist and sexist japan is in the workforce) fyi it occurs in 2016 (yes only 3 years ago) the japanese gov made it illegal to discriminate in public and jobs against Non Japanese forigners/citizens), all in all what I'm saying is vg companies hate when forigners dabble in their systems even try to find work with the parent company (being NOJ) thats part of the reason (other than piracy) we hack consoles

    though you can't deny the dev was kinda in the wrong here as well...

    It's sarcasm referring the recent choice to stop the C64 port of SMB.

    Ehm. eShop is a website.

    People generally dont wait for a ruby interpreter on a Nintendo console, if they want to attack one of those. Also people dont want to attack one of those, because thats illegal as hack.

    Your own switch - you might be able to argue, that you bought it, and should be able to do whatever you want with it. Nintendos servers? Not so much.
