    If your looking for a NEW Nintendo Switch on 3.0.0, I can say for sure that the new Splatoon 2 set is on 3.0.0. (That’s what’s at my Wall-mart)

    • Albert C says:

      Yup, I can confirm this as well. It’s too bad I had to update to 3.01 in order for Mario Odyssey to work. 🙁

  6. I always update at the worst possible time ever.

  7. Cheapskate says:

    You could “buy” Pokken from GameStop pre-owned. Upgrade. Then return it. They have a 7 day policy on pre-owned games.

    onlye on fw 3.0.0? can i stay on fw 2.0 for the homebrew?

    • azoreseuropa says:

      No, read the developer. They said go to 3.0.0. No 2.0 for the homebrew. You can rent as above and update to 3.0.0. 🙂

  9. Daniel Tome says:

    just go to local video rental place and rent pokken

    • andoryuu3 says:

      Easier said than done considering most rental stores in the US have closed shop.

      • Sumgir says:

        GameFly before you buy 😉

        • The Switch sux / weak fanboy "console". says:

          Kudos for that brilliant advise.
          Did that for a few years of “sampling” 360 games.

        • SwineAdam says:

          GameFly is a TERRIBLE service. even when they say they support FastReturns for your mailing address/location they are STILL an outright terrible service.

          right… sign-up and put in for a game that says “available now” and wait 3days just for it to even ship, then wait a whole week to receive it, then wait a whole week to return and wait another 3days for GameFly to say it is actually returned. TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE!

          i have tried this service 3 times, each with a year apart from each other. each time they claimed to support this so-called FastReturns service. nope… lies all lies. pft… if that is what they call fast, i would hate to see slow.

          $14.99 to rent a game for 5~7 days? no thanks! not when i go rent it at the local Family Video $8 for 5days. LOL!!!

    So just homebrews for now?, so is it safe to assume playing backups is almost a reality or still up in the air?

  11. lonewolfryuu says:

    This site is weird, stupid comments like “first” gets posted while normal posts concerning the topic don’t even make the cut

    • z2 says:

      it’s because posts here is organized by time and date of posting with the first on top instead of upvotes like reddit, that’s why first posts are a holy grail and will still be seen after many many years, thus the race for “first” posts.

      • hmmmm says:

        That still depends on the actual amount of comments. If page 2 is reached, posts from that one will be shown first.

      • Sumgir says:

        Yeah, and what else do they gain in the end cause clearly a lot of people want first, but even if you get first people will only ever hate you for 1 of 2 reasons
        1: You have first, and they hate you cause they don’t have first.
        2: You claimed first, and only waste time, and space down here in the comments where a meaningful conversation could take place

        • lonewolfryuu says:

          #2 makes perfect sense, i made a post earlier asking about the topic and it never got posted, while my second post which wasn’t anything topic related (as seen above) got posted, this is some weird *** imo and it happened to me a bunch of times lol!

    • SeanP2500 says:

      i had posted a link to my hello world vid for nintendo switch and it wasn’t allowed…

  12. Psvitabackfromrip says:

    If the switch can play homebrew “now” can it play retails games that have been uploaded to the net already as long as tjey are 3.0?

    • Wololo says:

      No you idiot. This now where near piracy. Have you even read the developer statements? No cuz you only want to pirate games blind fool.

  13. Hannity says:

    After this week 3.0 switches will be obsolete. Nin has been factory shipping 3.0.1 and up so start saving up to buy a 3.0 on a auction. At the end it’ll be worth it look at ps3 ps4 and 3ds plus vita : )

  14. Dr.Snuggels says:

    Got the Game today for 42Euro new… So who wants it for 30 euro??

  15. switch1 says:

    Just bought one from shop.. Machine is 3.0. Actually I feel most of them still 3.0 in the shop.. because not many people interest Nintendo switch.. Maybe next shippment will be 3.01/3.02…

  16. STGEVE says:

    3.02 already selling on EBAY from major retailers, found out the hard way this week.

  17. hmmm says:

    why stay on 3.0 for such an early exploit when all the good games will be released on a higher firmware…..e.g mario.

  18. Jason says:

    Just bought a switch from Australian retailer still running version 1.0.0 must not have sold many in my middle town.

  19. Beef says:

    How do I check my system menu version?

  20. blakkheartt12 says:

    I bought two Switches when they came out. One so I can keep playing and one for homebrew. 🙂 I did go ahead and buy pokentournement dx to keep from having to buy it when prices double, and only to upgrade. No interest in playing it.

  21. Sal says:

    I guess staying on 3.0.0 we are still good playing Zelda BOTW since its on a lower software version. Just stay offline

  22. dasda says:

    I wonder if I got 3.0.0
    is that mean I can hack and play any unofficial pirate games however I like. is that yes or no?
    reading above too much for my english. all I can read is from beginning until the word “worth buying pocket dx to update to 3.0.0”

  23. I conceive this web site holds some real superb information for everyone : D.
