    Yes, it's cheaper than 60 bucks, retail price of SX Pro is around $45, as for the single SX OS, it's much cheaper($25 to $30).

    their price of $35 has made me think why not.

    its either that or return my 5.0 switch and get a 4.x switch. The other issue I have is I really want to play online so being able to stay on the latest FW is a major positive.

    No, they are doing it for illegal profit. I will wait for free solutions. I am not stupid. Dont support them!

    Poll needs more trolls, or people are lying!

    I was thinking about it, but at this point it seems silly when a free alternative is right around the corner from it. Likely there will be some kind of way to use their stuff without buying it anyway. Pirate to pirate!

    You know, I don't think it'll be worth it, even at a price much lower than experienced scene members expected. I know I've heard a lot of bitching about how high the price is on it, but I don't think the people complaining this way have been in the scene very long or they'd know that the announced price is typically 2x-3x higher for first generation hack hardware. But even at this much more reasonable price (it's less than one new game, so you cheap wankers can chill), I don't know if it'll be worth the price knowing that a completely free alternative is hot on its heels. When Gateway 3DS first came out for instance, it was pretty expensive. But it was also the only product of its kind on the market for a long time after that, not to mention there being no free software-only methods of hacking the 3DS anywhere in sight. That's what justified its price tag: it was the only way to do what it could do.

    I think ultimately the choice will come down to how soon someone can figure out how to patch the bootrom to allow Switch to boot directly into CFW without any short-circuiting shenanigans.

    no u


    This was for my personal knowledge. If you don't like it then don't participate. Simple as that. All the responses are relevant, especially being that people have voted on each one.

    Well aren't you a hypocrite
    So you want a free solution to download illegal games

    How does that make you morally superior?

    Everybody who pays a contractor to built them a house are stupid idiots , all that bs the contractor did you can do it your self with the right knowledge you could build your stupid house already today.

    Sounds kind of ridiculous in a different context, now doesn't it.

    Jeez, I thought for sure the “out of stock” status was just because they hadn’t gone live yet :/ congrats!

    It depends on which features they will include. If Atmosphere will be better than TX with time, then I'll won't buy anything. But if they will support more than piracy then I'll think about it.

    Well, i'll go with the first release.

    If Atmosphere releases before TX OS, i'll use Atmosphere.
    If TX OS releases before Atmosphere, i'll get the TX OS version.

    I have the tools to get on RCM and know how to send the payloads, i don't need that dongle. Besides, i'll get access to the CFW on the same day, no shipping.
