holy crap lois, it's beytah!.png

As the day goes on, an unexpected leak from Nintendo has occurred once more, with documents and a Switch SDK from 2015. Of course, links are illegal to post by the way, so we won't provide any details on where the leak is at. Here are some highlights from the leak:

  • Neimod, a 3DS Scene hacker, has been approached by Nintendo and has been hired by force to work for them (Not kidding, they threatened him and stuff).
  • A device now known as the "Switch ST" from early on in development was made during production and was going to be backwards-compatible with the Nintendo 3DS.
  • Nintendo had a specific plan if the public found out that Neimod was hired, which is confirmed by this Twitter tweet:

That is all for now. If anything gets updated, I'll edit this thread.

This is really fucking aggravating.
Forced labor or face consequences?
Who the fuck do these pieces of shit think they are, seriously?

Isn't Switch just a rebranded Nvidia X1 Tablet?

Nvidia announced the cancellation of the X1 Tablet just a few months before the Switch's announcement, so it was suspicious to said at least.

Afaik, it wasn’t the exact same hardware, e.g. extra gig RAM. Plus obviously the OS is different.

Nintendo's plans and fears (assuming this is not a test exercise/done just to show the risk management people they are thinking about something then what they put speaks to what they fear) there are quite amusing.

I am not a fan of twisting the arm but generally most companies, gov agencies and the like have learned that picking up those with hard won skills does tend to beat hoping they appear out of university.
I am also not sure console hackers have ever turned around or called in dox type attack in retaliation for anything. I guess as a theoretical risk, though it does read more like they fear the hacker known as 4chan.
Accelerate efforts... possible but the will was always there.
Underground. Kind of already is. Most have learned to only release stuff when they have something, and maybe keep a few in reserve to dodge further patches. Unless they mean it means their bug bounty will no longer be as effective.

It seems the entire security of the Nintendo Switch is useless now.
Anyone could produce their own game cartridge since the keys got leaked.

EDIT: Ohh, of course.

Hey Nintendo

Go fuck yourself. These moves do not gain PR friendly moves for you. Nor does it encourage people to support you

Neimod fucked up somewhere though. A good hacker should never be accessible nor have any digital shadow linking back to their IRL profe

... Is this turning out to be a Leave Nintendo a Message Thread.

If so, then Nintendo, I'm eagerly awaiting your Switch Pro version.
Don't leave an Etrian Odyssey fan hanging, so please include actual Stylus support and, dare I say it, Autostereoscopic 3D functionality for Handheld Mode.
