Could try ebgames and look for a used one with an old firmware and then swap the serial but this is illegal. B-)

Not everything in this is legal. In fact: not much in this website is.
and i don't swap the serial (whatever you mean by that), i mostly likely to have both formatted when we trade.

Swapping the back plate which has the serials then returning is illegal but many people do it that's what I was getting at... Find a retail store that has old stock buy it and return it with the back swapped, that's if you country allows open box returns which here in Canada they do. Most people in usa/canada to to EBGames/GameStop because they are to dumb to check for the serial in other places thus easily able to scam them by either swapping the board or if the housing is in condition just swap the back and return. I know somone who found a launch 2ds at a big box retail store recently and he did exactly this.

There have been Atleast one case where nintendo figured out somone switched the back plates and did a return, their console was apparently banned and lost all their digital games, not sure if this story is true but saw it somewhere on gba temp, but many people do this so its relatively safe imo.

    I thought PS4/5 and Xbox One emulation would be kind of easy since they basically just a PC
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    they sorta are a pc
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They haslve dedicated on board chips that aren't tweaked like x64/x32 afaik
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    but its a custom os for both of them
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    designed for only specific hardware
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    so you have to learn to emulate that specific hardware which isn't as easy as you'd think
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It's a locked down Linux distro basically
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think the only custom hardware is to do with the SSD and a security chip
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Probably combined in one chip
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They place married security chips onto boards iirc

    Honestly after the PS3 and 360 I just went full PC
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Every games basically cross platform they only have about 6 titles making it worth the $600 price tag
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Didn't see much need for a console, all the advantages have kind of disappeared
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    the ps3 used to support installing linux because the cpu was so powerful
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Then the games are $70 and they want to reboot and refresh the same game every year
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    The ps3 was always Linux they just found a way to make it open source
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I'm avoiding buying from the big 3 at all atm
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    At one point PC game pads where poorly supported, loading a game had setup, it was complicated. Now it's almost as easy as a console.
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    nintendo needs to up their game soon
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yeah even bt support for Xbox one controllers are just as easy as pairing
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    considering the steamdeck can emulate the switch (yikes) theres almost 0 reason to buy the switch apart from playing online and using cartridges

    Xinput and 360 dongles were a driver nightmare
