[PSA] Strong anti-piracy measures implemented by Nintendo for online.

Don’t pirate Nintendo Switch games. That’s the message that prominent hacker SciresM has looked to deliver in an extensive Reddit post where he provided an overview about how application authorization works on the portable home console.

I like buying my games and supporting the developers to continue to make future projects. But saying that, Also don't mind hacking my device to play emulators for games that are not re-released digitally.

Lazyeye79125d ago

I'm all for supporting the developers, but when games rarely go on sale and never drops in price years later (Nintendo), you either buy used (so no money to the developer) or pirate the game.
So when its a game I feel is worth full price, they will get my money. When the game is worth half price and it goes on sale for half price, they will get my money. But when they never lower the price and it's a 'I want to play it but not at that price', what do you do?

You dont be a fanboy realize Nintendo is already stealing youtuber ad revenue money and reselling old games for high prices and buy used.

Odyssey, Breath of the Wild, Arms, Splatoon 2, Mario Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors and 1-2-Switch have all been on sale. Interestingly enough Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokken Tournament Deluxe, both remasters, are two that haven't seen much of a discount at all.

I imagine most people wouldn't bother taking their real Nintendo accounts online on a hacked console.

Here's a drink that will make you orgasm 20 times per minute BUT everyone will know you're a furry, and you'll probably be banned from your book club. Your move

...I'm freaking weak in the knees , LOL!

the title doesnt match what he was saying... Heck even the article is ad libing here and there, nice try though. If you play online you will probably get banned, but its a Nintendo console so most people dont play online anyway.

Sirk7x125d ago

It's more so that if you connect online ever, even to get updates, Nintendo will know, as they receive activity logs. He's saying right now that's there's no way to hide pirated games. If you pirate a game, you have to accept that console as being banned.

kevnb125d ago

exactly, but the blog makes it seem like they will break your switch or something.

DarkZane125d ago (Edited 125d ago )

Even if your console get banned, you can still update your games anyway so it doesn't matter. You only lose eshop access and the ability to play online. Some hackers who got their console banned already can update their games still.

now my comment looks foolish since they changed what article is linked and the title. Check the credit url to see what I was talking about.

Sgt_Slaughter125d ago

Funny, I get into online matches in MK8, Splatoon 2, Fortnite, Rocket League, ARMS, etc., just fine and with no lag but "most people don't play online anyway" so I must be dreaming.

kevnb125d ago

most people and all people are not the same thing, if you havent noticed the switch is very popular console.
