    Doubt we're going to see any original games. Everything will a be yet another franchise remake/sequel. New generation of hardware for a new generation of suckers.

    Your OP reads like it's from a different thread ... I'll just address the title.

    flashcart (sky3ds-like functionality) 2018
    cfw 2020
    Don't argue with my predictions they are certified correct by unnamed experts.

    I kinda hope we get an app that allows us to dump saves first, if it's not very deep (in terms of security)

    Yeah, I'm kinda thinking I still don't even care about this system and its games. Sorry if I wander OT. Occurred to me as I was typing that there are no games I want for this system. Mayhap the homebrew will be good.

    The console just came out. Hacks aren't going to come for a while and no one knows when. (I would that doubt hackers have started serious hacking, but people have already cut a chunk out of a running console with a 60,000 PSI water drill, so there's no telling.)

    The games will be dumped within a years time, so there will definitely be a flashcart by 2018-2020...ish and i wont be surprised if people like smealum are able to crack the switch and create homebrew...so pretty exciting!

    Apparently the Joy-cons have full kernel access.

    I've heard that if you take the removable eMMC, throw it in Lichee juice and point your left JoyCon towards it, it launches Soon™hax and you can install NXTools CFW. But then there will be TXLH masterrace and LubbaNX.

    This sort of speculation is useless.

    It reminds me of the people asking for iOS 10 jailbreak on Twitter and the vlogs full of speculation.

    It depends,but i think we won't see anything about hacks this year. Maybe Mid-2018. It depends on how easy is nintendo switch to hack and a lot of other stuff. If it takes the same way 3DS hacking took expect it being around 2020 or something like this.

    Considering Nintendo has the ability to unique identify each cartridge for My Nintendo registration, any sky3ds equivalents for the Switch would most likely be short lived as they use the same ability to disable known shared ROM headers with system updates (Ninty did this in the past with DS flashcards).

    If you plan to pirate Switch games, forget about going online or play new releases without losing access to your existing ones until a CFW comes out.
