    Just my estimations.
    1) SDXC: After Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
    2) Capture 1920 * 1080 pictures/ 720p video: Around Mario Odessy, or mid 2018 at worst.
    3) Online services (Lobby, voice chat, etc.): Around September.
    By making these updates essential for the console to function, Nintendo eliminate any hack in 2017.

    1) Day 1 update probably
    2) No idea
    3) Day 1 update - No use providing the first few months free online services if it's not available.

    1 is already supported. 2 I'd guess summer. 3 has already been announced for summer (free trial of the app and online services until fall). Random matchmaking and online play will be available starting day one without voice chat and other services.

    Butbpaid online is suppose to be fall, while splatoon is summer.
    I think April.
    It would make no sense for them to start paid when splatoon launchs.
    Gotta give them the free sample before charging lol......

    my dad works for nintendo.
    Switch will be so broken there will be a stability and fixing update every week.
    Each update will fix 1 thing, breaking 2 things
    Nintendo won't tell anything on their notes, cu they don't want you to know how bad is it...

    I am assuming this because the 3ds OS is also a messed up crap, it started as a basic thing, with more stuff added, like the switch will be...

    Nintendo lies...please understand.

    Fall starts September 22 this year. You could be right, a month or so of free Splats.

    Well, I'm assuming that it won't be bad. But, certainly not unstable. Nintendo wouldn't release a half-baked firmware. Also, the 3DS firmware wasn't that bad at launch. Sure, it was dull and boring, but it has evolved. Including the Wii; not so much the Wii U. Since it only got updates that added small features and patched exploits; and they don't seem to care any longer.

    EDIT:

    This is the amount of time, that it will cost for the Switch's errors:

    I don't think we will be getting themes any time soon after what happened on the 3ds lol. Heck we may not even be seeing a browser at this point.

    Which unlike your pc comes in as a single package. And sdxc is definitely a Firmware upgrade, and so are the rest two.

    LOL...
    You are one of those who assume if the console has a browser it can be hacked right?


    The ps4 has themes or will have themes, so hax confirm?

    Come on people.. Stop being stupid..
    Each console had its own OS, with its own flaws, the switch having a browser or a sound player or wth enabled the hax on the 3ds. doesn't mean it's the same thing as 3ds.
    One of the fucking PSP first exploits was a overflow or something like that on the picture viewer, the exploit would be launched through a gif image.
    And yet when the ps3 was a thing or the ps4 is here, no one would just say stupid stuff like since you can see pictures on the console, hax is confirmed.
    Please stop this stupidity

    SDXC cards are confirmed not to be supported in the original firmware, but likely a day one update. (I really don't think it'll happen in April)

    Firmware is a type of software...

    I'd have to be really rich or really dumb to want to waste my time getting a prebuilt. If others want to get it that's on them, I like customization.

    Firmware is the core OS
    Software is the programs that run on it.

    I.e.
    Nintendo patching homebrew on the 3ds firmware.

    The dlc, game updates are software.

    Now the eshop and broswer are software which are updated and pack into the firmware. Then updated via a firmware update.
