    So I was on facebook where the sun has an article talking about the switch being hacked, checked it out be because why not. They mentioned ios, thought it was just the browser dns switchup, then....



    https://twitter.com/SpillyGuy/status/841616334488129539

    They show this aswell?

    and here's the article I was speaking about:
    http://www.mirror.co.uk/tech/nintendo-switch-hacked-gamer-loads-10025101



    Has to be fake, dude is a motorcycle blogger or something, and hacks a switch? When does motorcycle engineering help with code cracking?

    Thoughts?

    He's clearly replaying a video on the screen...

    Fake: it is a video.
    Go to the part where he talks while having the tablet in his hands: he does nothing but text move.

    (and seriously, he is a motor blogger xD)

    Thanks GBATemp, i've become a fake buster thanks to you !

    It's bullshit, end of the video, he's by himself, holding the switch with one hand and pointing at it with the other, and Link is moving around. It's a video being played back.

    It's obviously just playing a video in full screen.
    The part where he is holding the tablet with his hands shows Link WALKING and the text box scrolling, yet he has no sign of a Joycon in any of his hands.

    This is just awful, he deserves to be put into place.

    Besides, if he really wanted to show off that it is working, he'd put the Joycons and the screen in the same sight of the video to show that he is moving it alongside with the movement on screen

    This thread should be a global announcement, visible on all GBAtemp pages.

    I don"t understand a thing: why doing a fake like it ?
    - It is too obvious, no one will trust him
    - He is a fuc...ing motor profesionnal. It would be like Rambo hacking a PC...

    i seriously hope the switch will not get any type of hax that leads to piracy for at least another year or two.
    anything piracy related for the switch as we all know would probably kill the console, and who would want that ?

    some type of homebrew would be fine though i guess..


    i second this , too much hax related thread on the switch these days.
    and at times i am somewhat scared that one of them may be real and lead to piracy hax and that making me think it'd kill the switch ;-;
