    What are the goals for the hackers for the Switch during its life-span?

    I'd like to see the Switch scene resemble the 3DShacks scene. Still, I expect it will be a long wait before we see the first bit of news on this.

    Obviously everything you could do on the previous systems and more.

    Emulators. If one thing can make the switch a perfect gaming machine, that one thing is emulators.

    The goal? To hack the system for piracy, and a tiny subsection for homebrew no one uses or cares about aside from emulators everyone has on every device.
    What else would there be. The switch is the same as any other gaming system.

    I would like local TV.

    Homebrew software which allows for the usage of a USB tv antenna to view channels.

    It would also simultaneously allow for some cannibalistic gaming if you use a RF adapter of an N64 and plug it into the Switch...

    I remember when I took my Xbox One and started gaming on a plane.

    ...except that never happened. The Switch is absolutely not the same as any other gaming system. The Nintendo Switch is a powerful, mobile device that has a lot of potential due to it's hardware strength, price tag, and flexibility.

    Of course, if Microsoft released a Windows tablet with powerful hardware and affordable price, then that would easily be the most popular device of the decade...but it wouldn't have Zelda. /shrug

    Their point is that they have no respect for the incredible people who put out all of the homebrew software that also allows for piracy in the first place.

    Give me a Mario Kart : Double Dash in a nomad mode.
    Really. I've been a hardcore player of MK:DD (TT player for years and years) and wow, i'm dreaming of this. With support of the WiiU <=> GC USB thing.

    The rest, I don't care. Hackers can do what they want, just bring me this.

    We can tell yet when it will be hacked (although it will be quite fast this time) but it will be hacked for sure

    I have theories as to how it could be hacked, but I hope it'll be like the Wii homebrew scene.

    I bet Nintendo will give us an official browser. We already have ways to access the one they've implemented. No reason to not just give us a real browser at this point.

    I would love to see Quake/Quake 2 on here. I'm an old school gamer, and I loved the way Quake on the Wii played. Motion controls optional, of course.

    Injection is a strong possibility. Wondering if we'll get GC VC... or some fork of Dolphin running. Hm.
