Might not be the cheapest way to get a switch + odyssey, but if you're after the limited edition odyssey bundle it seems like a pretty sweet deal.
Original GET10 deal
Good price, love the red controllers! I paid the full $550 RRP for this bundle on the day of release. Bloody nostalgia…
Also a good way to get a guaranteed hackable Switch.
What do you mean by this?
older switches have hardware based hacks which have been mitigated in later models
Have been? Nintendo already released patched hardware models?
Yes, just google which Switch serial numbers to avoid.
Units built in the last 3ish months have a hardware vulnerability patched by Nintendo, which this predates.
Excuse my laziness. What are the hacks used for? Just home brew? Or are people playing pirated games?
Both, or also making back ups of the cartridges and playing the game off their SD cards.
@jwilthethrill: backing up all your games and not having to physically switch carts is the best part by far
All of the above. I used it to back up my cartridges so I'm not carrying $$$ worth on a trip, play emulators, and back up save games (which Nintendo is holding hostage behind their online service).
@Merlict: Won't Nintendo be able to force an update somehow though? Or block you when trying to play online?
Nope, the exploit is at a hardware level and can't be patched.
You do have to accept a very high chance of being banned, and it's 100% if you go online with pirated / modified games. I don't really care, since Nintendo's online is so utterly crap.
@Merlict: Yeah I get you. Not being able to setup fornite and such would be a limitation though.
Thanks. Just watched some videos on it earlier. I’d be interested in home brew games so I could play old Nintendo games etc but apparently Nintendo are starting to frown on that also and banning systems. Too risky for me, wish they would just sell a legit emulator program and cheap games, seems kinda crazy they don’t do it, could be a lot of money in it for them.
@nenadb: even ipads can run fortnite tho
Thanks for the info.
Is the hack a soft mod on older Switches like for the Wii?
Do you have a link to read up on this? What serials are included?
Not a bad deal, I just seen Dragon Ball Xenoverse in store at Big W for $29.00
I wish we have the switch deal like the one from Amazon more often.
$315 and 7.5% from cashrewards making a total of $291.4? Oh yeah That was a pretty insane deal.
I will be happy with the $378, should have pulled the trigger back then.
Pulled it at that with the extra $20 off, and it’s been by far one of the best purchases I made. Even at $400 I’d be super happy with it.
I sold the Xbox and lent the PS4 out after that.
nothing else is really a bargain after that
Plus the $10 prime credit they had on offer at the same time made it a killer price
I got a second hand one for $440. Don’t know if it’s been banned I intend to backup all my carts and play from there but waiting for the hack to be more mature.
Could've bought a new one and a game for that much …
Not the Mario collectors edition.
Buy sx os pro. No need to wait
Didn't plan on buying a switch right now.
Can someone explain why this is worth getting? Nintendo has released the red joycons separately haven't they? I'm pretty sure I have seen them at BigW although I can't find them on their site.
They only have them separately in Japan. It was possible to import it via Amazon Japan before now they have closed that. :(
Will cashrewards 3.5% work in this?
To answer my own question just received an email saying $8.33 tracked from CR
