    I hope Nintendo does something to prevent this, piracy will hurt the switch’s future releases like a b*tch. I don’t have a great salary, but I can afford every game I want, why can’t people just do things as they are intended? At least pirate users will get banned if trying to go online and that makes me happy.

      >I don’t have a great salary, but I can afford every game I want, why can’t people just do things as they are intended?
      Weird statement. I can do it so why others can’t. There are many factors and circumstances. Many pro and contra arguments to pirating. It’s not black and white.

      I’m happy to pirate ever since they forced me to pay for their *** P2P online service and all-round anti-consumerism. Sadly it doesn’t really hurt them much because people who pirate wouldn’t buy the games even if they couldn’t pirate anyway.

      It’s more than proven that piracy doesn’t hurt sales of games, music or films. It actually makes the opposite effect. And the Switch doesn’t get hurt by piracy in the slightest. Good to know you spend your hard earned cash in all the games you wont, but I also hope you don’t buy many that end up with less than 10 hours played. LOL And the “do as intended” comment? That really makes you seem like a corporate chill. Why don’t you give your wallet to Nintendo already? But yeah, lets ban everyone that plays “pirated” games, even if they bought the original game and are simply trying to preserve their own stuff! It’s people with that kind of mindset that make it difficult to preserve media in the long term… “Digital only” delivery is already a big enemy as it is on preservation, with companies pulling the plug and people losing access to their paid content, but with this kind of mindset, that will really help in the future, for sure…

        that “game backup” argument, I’m so tired of hearing that pathetic excuse. I can assure you that more than 90% of hacked switch users are using it to pirate games. Don’t get me wrong, I’m no angel either, my vita and 3ds are hacked, the difference is that those are old systems and no developer is planning their future releases considering the revenue they get on those platforms.

        Oh yeah, of course it is more than proven that piracy is actually good for sales. So I guess that Nintendo went out of their way to fix the original console vulnerability just to lose money, right? Hey.. they would have made much more money by just leaving piracy enabled!! I have to admit, I can’t really make out if you are brain dead or just a regular 2020 social media know it all. Go conquer the world, champ.

      Because I like to share my games with my SO and having one of our consoles as a primary and the other as a secondary means one of the consoles needs to be online to play the games. Just no, I’m interested in this just so I can bypass that limitation and play the games I own. I also want to be able to backup and swap our save files depending on who’s console we’re using. I don’t see why I can’t have my Animal Crossing profile on my switch only. We have a Switch and a Switch Lite. I like to play AC on the TV but also on the way to school and there’s no reason why this is a limitation. It’s people with narrow minds who see hacks and exploits as piracy only. There are lots of reasons that require a hack such as this that aren’t all about piracy. And “I don’t have a great salary” is ignoring those that underaged and their family’s banded together to buy a console and can’t afford every game. Not everyone has a salary.

      I have 4 Nintendo switches, one for each household member with an extra that is online only. We use only one legit for online. The rest are modded. I purchase games to play online but most games I own in steam that my family will only play on the switch itself. It is nice not repurchasing 4 copies of games that I already owned. Any major first party is usually still purchased for online play. But the modded consoles allow us to use the games as we please.

      Perhaps I am a minority, perhaps you disagree still with our decision but I am very thankful for the modding community which allow us to play how we want to play. If my youngest wants to play BOTW with unlimited stamina/health or if I want to backup our families SSBU progress and disperse it to everyone, it is possible, regardless of which profile we are using on which console.

      In short, I’ve still spent 1k-1.5k on entertainment. I think that justifies being able to do what I damn well please.

    A modded Switch can bring you so much more than just pirated games. I want to mod my Switch Lite mainly for emulation. Piracy won’t hurt future releases, that’s ***, it was easy to hack a DS at the time by simply using a Linker, literally anybody could do it, and it didn’t the DS games market, they still sold tons of them, literally. The first Switch models were easily hackable, and it didn’t hurt Nintendo, nor the Switch games market.

    Paying these guys instead of paying the game makers sounds like a really stupid idea. To use vulnerabilities in a console to play some games you wouldnt be buying anyway is cool, but paying a kind of parasite in-between to do so is totally off imho.

      The developers make heaps of money, it won’t hurt to take a bit from them 🙂
