    I am going to be completely honest, i am planning on pirating some games.
    I dont have a switch yet and i am not sure if i should buy one now or hold off for a year or two plus if i buy one now i am mostly going to play online games so if an update comes out and i cant update bc of stuff that will be fixed, then the switch will be useless for me.
    Any advice is appreciated :D

    If you look at all Nintendo consoles they all let you play Roms on the latest firmware (more or less) so buy one when ever you want.

    It's clear they are still decades behind in security so go ahead. They could go hard on banwaves tho.

    I applaud you for being honest with yourself about pirating some games.

    For your information, online ? (chuckling) Be expect that you will be banned anyway. I have PS3 and jailbreak for over 6 years and I never used the online and I do not care about it. So I don't get banned. If you really want online then don't pirate some games that required the online and buy other Switch for legal reasons. Hope it helps.

    ReSwitched will announce whether or not their exploits still work after updates. Currently, they have private exploits that work on all FW versions, so wait for their word before updating. They said they will release exploits when they have a stockpile or Nintendo patches them.

    For your other concern, buy a Switch before the piracy hits. then all of those who are waiting won't get in your way of trying to find one

    That's why we aren't buy Nintendo Switch at all. Wait for 3rd party AAA games if they are supporting it and not much good games this year except Zelda due that I am a fan of Zelda and Mario Odyssey (I don't care about Mario kart and Mario + Rabbids game.. not my things).

    there are other consoles that fill your needs for this and I don't want to see switch get covered by CoD, Battlefield, and other shitty games

    Just buy it now, prices aren't gonna drop anytime soon and you don't know if they will patch later updates. If it makes you feel any better you're only giving Nintendo $50 (probably less when you include manufacturing costs) for the console.

    Don't buy one, buy something else instead, like a wii u, that is already hacked. You could be sitting on a system without many games from 3rd party. Honestly it seem like Nintendo is busting some backs trying to get titles on the system. I mean People confirmed "Capcom will make more games if Ultra street fighter 2 sales are acceptable." The problem. Is a 25 year old game that is a celebration of Street fighter 30 year anniversary and cost $40. Features 2 new characters, MOAR BALANCED GAMEPLAY, new game modes, dramatic battle and way of the hado (A motion control game using Street fighter V graphics) And mega man legacy collection isn't even announced for the switch. :glare:

    Is gonna be a "BUY MY GAME!" Kind of thing, so if you DO get one, then just keep this in mind.
