Well you can now buy a $40 dongle that cracks the Switch and installs a CFW. Dongle is only needed for initial install which takes about 5mins and then it runs homebrew and can run almost all retail game images. Doesnt work with eshop titles but yep there you go. Switch is the most hacked, easily hacked and quickest hacked console..... ever?

Nah, the PSOne and Dreamcast were really easy to play pirate games on.

You wont be able to take your console online though if you do hack it as Nintendo can easily check to see if your software is illegal or not.

I don’t remember them being cracked so quick.

They’re currently getting round the online check by ripping the header from a game you own and merging that into the pirated code to piggy back the way through the check. I’m sure that’s an easy fix for Nintendo to close that hole over. No great loss not being able to play Splatoon, Smash or Kart8 anyway :p

If they ever got GameCube running I’d totally hack it but the Vita is so good at everything else I don’t know if I’ll bother.

I remember the Dreamcast being hacked really quickly. Think I bought one inside the first year and was able to play pirate games almost straight away.

I really enjoyed the demo, but I need to know more about the story before I'll actually buy the game (despite it being one I've been excited for since they revealed it 18 months ago). I'm concerned that there isn't much of an overarching plot, and that the playable characters won't actually interact much with one another.

I also want to find it for less than £45 for the digital copy.

I was going to go physical just to be able to sell it on when I get scunnert with it.
