And the consoles keep coming and games get developed and the movies still release and TV shows get made and music gets recorded.....
You’ve never consumed a single pirated medium? Not one movie, not one episode of a TV show, not one song?
People who pirate content won’t automatically pay for it if they can’t get it for free so don’t even start the failed argument that piracy equates to losses in revenue.
What actually does combat piracy is convenience of service and reasonable pricing.
I used pirate nearly ever PC game. Would I have bought them if I couldn’t? Absolutely not. Did I even play all of them? Absolutely not.
Then Steam got more and more prolific and games got cheaper and cheaper in their sales. So rather than finding a decent torrent I bought games on Steam because it was more convenient and the price point was reasonable.
Now rather than having pirated games on my PC I’ll never play, I have paid for games on my PC I’ll never play.
The point is, piracy prevention through “security” and DRM doesn’t work, and hasn’t worked ever and won’t work ever.
Regarding homebrew; if there’s an application that will allow me to backup my saves then I’ll definitely “hack” my Switch because Nintendo is still operating in the 90’s with certain aspects.
Oh and it’s always nice to see hypocrites down vote these stories but upvote stories that are a result of homebrew.
