Can we haz PSP and SNES emulatorz nou?

A Standard Tegra X1 will run a PSP emulator no problem, the CPU downclock from 1.9ghz to 1ghz in the Switch might pose a problem for PSP emulation, dunno.

Sorry, what? Much slower mobile SoCs than a downclocked Tegra X1 can handle the PPSSPP emulator in full speed (original PSP performance or better).

Why do people always want Linux on everything anyways.

They don't. That's just the altruistic cover story. What they really want is a way to pirate games for the Switch. 

The other favorite cover story for would-be pirates is "As a consumer I should be able to make an archival copy of my games to protect my legally purchased games/apps."  Same bulls**t, different twist.

Lol, yeah that's probably it.

The mask comes off completely when pirates are able to talk amongst themselves without fear of ostracization.  For Nintendo's sake, I hope that this method is too cumbersome to use and that Nintendo can find a solution soon so that it doesn't affect them considerably.



Good job - though with so many mobile devices in the wild, emulation is ehhhhh... yeah. The dock is nice to have though.

The good thing is, with such a lackluster online infrastructure as of now, hacking it and losing online services (like one usually does with hacked systems), is not a problem.

It's not so much about Linux itself. Linux is just proof of concept that you can run any software.

The hacking itself allows for broader usage of your device. For instance on the DS I used homebrew to add calendar, notepad and music player - things that Nintendo added for 3DS. You could add an Android-layer and get every Android app, as long as it doesn't use phone specific stuff. But internet is possible with the switch, so many useful apps could be ported.

Nope, that is the cover story of haters, that everyone is a pirate and everything revolves around pirating things. Open Source Software actually is based on the idea that sharing your work is no problem. You don't pirate by using Open Source Software.

So, two generic users without avatar but with similar generated usernames talk to each other about a phantasy of everything is about piracy... Bots for astroturfing?

I hate this guy...

Why?



This is great news. The Switch would be a great portable and home emulation device, be great playing lots of them PS2, GC, Wii etc games on the go. It might even be possible to overclock the Switch's tegra chip back to its original clock speeds, but it might be best to do this while docked as id imagine it would eat the battery.
