Curious if this affects Nvidia future with nintendo considering the exploit is found on their X1 tengra, now on the switch (literally a paper clip)

Im not surprised tbh that the switch was gacked in such a short time.

I just hope this doesnt have any major downside to it for us that plan on playing legit.

Someone gacked your keyboard.

hacked to play what. It can't even handle dreamcast games.

@mikeslemonade

You try too hard.

majiebeast153d ago

the most surprising thing is that its done by using some type of custom lego block that pushes 2 pins inside the switch.

You can short the pin without the tool, but the tool exists for the non-technically inclined.

Time to get a Switch I guess.

You need to do it asap. The original batch of switch consoles will be priceless after this get taken out from newer models.

Now I’m coy to buy one, before they fix that hardware exploit

superchiller152d ago (Edited 152d ago )

Me too, I would never have bought one due to Nintendo's lame eShop, anti-consumer policies, and overpriced games, but if I can just pay for the system by itself and not worry about all that, it might be fun to play around with.

You mean, "now that you don't have to pay for games."

I was thinking more about possible home brew classics
