    @Spencer Everly Studios, thanks for writing this yourself - thought the name was familiar and it turns out you're the one who posted on youtube the nintendogs soundtrack! :D

    For whoever was afraid of me not having written the article - Yes, I have downloaded them and will post hashes tomorrow

    By the way here's Marcan's (of Team Twiizers fame) reaction:

    remember this is a public forum, website,

    stuff you post here can be read by anyone, even if they don't have an account

    if anything it makes nintendos job easier and cheaper, let us figure out all the flaws and exploit them, and do most of the tedious stuff, post all the info on how it works online (forums/github), so they just can just bulk patch with software updates...


    now they can save cost by only having to pay their devs to make patches.......

    lol.. can't believe this is real, the best thing about the leaks is that they simply show Nintendo's true colors.

    I'm from Belgium. This attack on a Belgian "hacker" is dubious on many, many, many levels.

    The first move will be to simply stop using, buying or condoning any Nintendo products in the present or near future, at least until I'll get more information on this. The second one will be to dig a bit to see if Neimod isn't actually someone close to me (which may be, according to Nintendo's information) and to see if he fares well, for obvious reasons. Then I'll act accordingly.

    Dick move, Nintendo. VERY dick move.

    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.

    I wanted that add-on and even thought Nintendo would release since it felt right for the Switch.

    Fuck... Fake Switch game cards about to inundate the market.

    That's why I stopped buying GBA carts. Too many fakes out there.

    Try to see it from this point: They are investigating a possible case of technology theft where a Chinese company could be doing their thing (not wanting to offend users there if they read me <3).

    Obviously exaggeration, but it can be a case or something like that, suspicions of creating devices that violate and allow the software to run and make a profit (ahem OS SX ahem), all corporations do things (and much more...) like that and Nintendo is a holding company, so at the end of the day it will not be the exception.

    Scary? ABSOLUTELY YES. Abnormal? for nothing in such a case.

    I said it more as a curious fact but it all depends on the legislation in which it is.

    nothing wrong with buying fake ones imo, as long as the game is no longer in production, and the price is relatively cheap, and you know you're not getting authentic. you can easily store carts in case something happens to the console (which is likely considering the switch build quality isn't that great to begin with)

    The Keys don't work. Evidently even older model Switchs got that changed. Also the old keys would still be on a blocklist from firmware 1.X on anyway.

    A 2015 Switch SDK would practically be no different than the final Wii U SDK. Not interested.

    This gigaleak is shit. I want source code leaks for GameCube games as a followup to the Nintendo 64 game source code.

    And I would like more protos, including from Summer CES 1992.

    Plot Twist: This Nintendo employee is pretending to be loyal to Nintendo, but they're actually spying on Nintendo for their next move and do what's called: a pro gamer move.

    (It's completely different, they rewrote pretty much everything.)

    I wonder how many folks in the switch scene are being investigating currently.

    The switch lite should have been the Switch ST with the ability of playing switch games but at lower res.

    Read like a boring and basic PI background report to me.
    Finances, living arrangements, personal relationships, skills, employment, routine, deviations from routine...
    Less ninja and more some local ex policeman got paid £50 an hour to sit in their car with a camera and notepad, and scan through public records and social media.

    Whether it was warranted or not is a matter for debate. Active threat as far as Nintendo was concerned... maybe.

    Re: Imagine hiring the hackers to work for you.
    As mentioned earlier schools don't necessary crank out the hackers, indeed most education is all about stifling the kind of mindset that really works here.


    Though there are longer forms of this


    Bit of a puff piece for their activities but does cover a lot.

    Re: Nintendo browsing here.
    Nintendo likely have two main interests in following here
    1) Occasionally some of the hackery news gets released and collated here. Some of the hackers doing it also maintain generally active accounts which can also be useful.
    If they care about cheats (there was that pokemon wifi peeking program*) and ROM hacks (debatable) then might have something more.
    2) While hackers are scary when a person I know to have minimal technical abilities (mainly because I get tapped to do their IT) wanders up to me and mentions a little device they got for their kid's DS that they copied a bunch of games onto so they don't have to buy any new games all with zero prompting from me (the only people I have properly spoken to about flash carts in real life were other members of the site when we met up to go to that Switch launch event, and that was maybe three sentences at best while we were waiting to go in) then you know that represents a percentage of their bottom line at some level, or a least something to curb.
    The average person following this thread probably pays little attention to the guide followers other than when they breach containment from the noob paradise threads but Nintendo surely do.

    *Nintendo/gamefreak had seemingly not made it past page 2 of the big book of security and broadcast pokemon selections in plaintext while the other player could still select theirs. One little program to basically act as a glorified packet filter later (and hundreds, which itself is dozens of times what anything else ever got, of reports on filetrip from concerned/no fun pokefiends about how the program was "illegal") and yeah.
