I got 99 secure devices but a Nintendo Switch ain't one: If you're using Nvidia's Tegra boot ROM I feel bad for you, son

Re: An Nvidious flaw

A downlodable game is linked to a Nintendo Account, and the account is linked to 1 (one) Switch.

Now if Nintendo are serious about wanting to sell more than one Switch per household, they need to fix this - they need to be able to set up family accounts and group accounts allow games to be downloaded by everyone in the family.

The alternative is buying one cartridge which works with every Switch in the household.

They also need save game backups in case the Switch dies or gets stolen but that's another problem. Since the Wii they've been terrified of game save backups due to exploits so they won't allow local save game backups, but they're too tight to make it cloudy.
