    I hope Team Xecuter receives a cease and desist from N

    • Blu3bl00d says:

      They won’t.

      • Bl4ckbl00d says:

        Also that this hack’s users get banned or better, have their switches bricked. I really hope so.

          Why so aggresive?
          Doesn’t this support other payloads? Aside from sxos, I mean.
          Sure, it may be overpriced and whatnot… but I don’t see anybody else hacking mariko & lite.

          And if you just don’t support hacks….what are you doing here? xD

          • Bl4ckbl00d says:

            I support hacks but only for dead systems like the vita and 3ds. Hacks for current platforms kills them and I want the switch to last as long as possible.

          • Vorde says:

            Hacking online is the issue I have with it, but most people who expect to use this won’t play online.
            What was the last game console killed by hacking? I’ve never seen it happen before.

        • FFTW says:

          yeah right, the Xbox 360 was TOTALLY dead after it was hacked within a year of its release. Same for the OG Xbox, the PS2, the PS3, the Wii, and literally every single CD based system prior to this generation >_>.

          Seriously, ***. Not only do you have absolutely no clue what you are talking about, but you are wishing ill on innocents just because of your ignorance and stupidity.

          • Bl4ckbl00d says:

            Well of course no company will easily give up their million dollar investment just because someone figured out how to bypass their security. It’s always a long battle. But many developers will think twice before investing on a platform that won’t net as much revenue as one that’s not been compromised. Maybe the ds or 3ds would have gotten more titles and/or longer lifespan and the same could be said for other consoles, but we will never know since there is no console that hasn’t been hacked. I hacked my first console with the PSP back in 2007 and since then every portable console I had, which is all of them. So yeah, I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but if you are not 12 years old then please don’t call names to strangers on the internet, it’s a very immature thing to do and you have no basis for doing it.

          It won’t happen, but your tears sure taste nice.

    Eu concordo com o Black Blood pois isso afasta o investimento das produtoras, o online da plataforma encolhe com relação ao número de hardwares vendidos pois estarão na sua maioria invadidos !
    A Nintendo possui uma enorme desvantagem com relação ao suporte de jogos multi plataforma , um hardware peculiar para ser portado, um esforço que na realidade de uma invasão na metade da base instalada ( suposição ) não iria valer a pena.
    Precisa pensar muito ?

    • Raikonen says:

      What happened my man? You seem oddly invested in this.
      Also, keep in mind that you can still get the chip from a Chinese based site that stocks from mainland. Stocks in US or Europe will suffer, yeah.

      • Bl4ckbl00d says:

        I don’t know, maybe it’s because a Team of a*holes is trying to ruin my favourite console. Or maybe the reason is that social distancing makes me get invested in stupid things like this. If I was a jobless slob I would probably be cheering for the hackers.

        • Digital957 says:

          Hacking a console in no way ruins it. As part of the PSP homebrew community. Having that system opened up did so much good for indie and homebrew development. I have a job and all the game I could want on the switch.There are a lot of cool uses for this that have nothing to do with Piracy.

          • Bl4ckbl00d says:

            Trust me I know, I’m a developer (not games tho) and I’m all about open hardware too. But >90% of the uses for this units are towards piracy and I don’t need sources for that, I’ve in the hacking scene since the release of chickHen for the psp and by now this is just history repeating itself once again.

    • CarlTrek says:

      Xecuter won’t die that easily even if you willing so. Their factory and dev team are all in China which is famous for middle fingers towards intellectual properties.
