    Just speculation here, but maybe the problem with adding these services is the fact that Google/Netflix don't want their services on the platform for some reason, like the Google-Amazon drama a few months ago. Remember when we couldn't watch videos on the web browser? Maybe this was a result of Google blocking YouTube on the device when they realised Nintendo was developing the app (and likely came to Google for help integrating the service).

    Golden rule about Nintendo online services: always expect the worse (and even so you'll be disappointed)

    Doesnt change the fact that it was "leaked" about the releases for media streaming apps. Also I doubt 6.0 would release that soon considering that Nintendo wouldnt risk releasing a big update without knowing what exploit could be used against them. Its either CFW comes out first and they patch it before that, or 6.0 releases before CFW or the latter.

    If it did happen, wasn't youtube used as a exploit before on another system? :unsure:

    On 3DS, yeah, but it was patched and could've been avoided anyway if they made a proper app instead of a web browser in disguise.

    Imagine if every smart device took the "Some other device will do it" mentality.

    Maybe a new firmware (not 6.0) will be released today / tomorrow to allow Fortnite to have native chat support (through headphone jack). During the Tree House event they said Fortnite has that, and will be activated on Thursday (probably what he said).

    The post that best buy had up on Twitter was an error apparently. Doesnt mean it's not true. But they sure did act fast to let people know it wasnt something that was available. Guess we will have to wait and see right?
