Just got alert on Camelx3
Seems like a great price from my quick search
Mod Note: Based on product image, it the older 2017 model.
seems like this is the 2017 (v1) model
yes you are correct - i'll update
oh wow being snapped up. Please report when OOS.
incoming Switch Pro model
Sometime in the next week from what I have heard.
I heard that last year too
And the year before
@wtfnodeal: I was 3 weeks early.
@nirving: For the same unit with a slightly bigger oled screen and 64gb. All other internals are all the same from 2017. Not the 4K Pro people have been talking about thr last couple years.
Soo not a worthy upgrade at all. Especially with kids starting a game up, and forgetting about it creating potential screen burn in on the same 720p res 😂
I guess this is runout stock?
Based on the box, it the older model.
Great find OP
Hmmm prices getting low. Must have some weight behind those switch pro rumours…. Need to list mine on Facebook market ASAP 😬
Damn, V1 stock, reckon Bezos would personally respond if I asked for the serial number to see if it was hackable?
Laughed too hard.
Better ask soon, as he's stepping down as CEO and flying to space.
This was my thought too, without the Bezos part lol
Most likely not hackable, these are probably the most recently produced old models before production switched over exclusively to the newer models. Ebay or Gumtree is a better bet.
What's the difference between this model and the current model?
New model has better battery life and screen.
Early versions of original model can be hacked.
not all earlier versions just to clarify. I bought one before the new models came out, and mines patched unfortunately.
Yeah my wording probably wasn't clear enough, Early versions of original version haha. I have been stung with a patched one which I had to eBay
@cook99: No worries, just didnt want others to get stung like us. Overall your right though. I cant seem to find a decent early version under $500, there next to impossible to source now.
@dmcneice: I can see quite a few under $400 (even a few under $300) on facebook marketplace, I guess it depends where you are located as to what bargains can be found.
Just came back in stock, I snagged one after hitting refresh every 15 seconds for the last 10 minutes lol.
With Prime returns, if it can't be patched then it can easily be returned or easily sold on FB marketplace/gumtree.
Why would you want to patch it yourself?
You know what I meant :)
Cos free games
Small % chance its that one .
You are just wasting time and could join their Black List .
Yes, on that small chance I think it's well worth my time.
I order quite a bit from Amazon and have never had a problem returning any product, which there has been many.
I'm more referring to AMZ time lol :)
@popsiee: I'm sure the multi billion dollar conglomerate appreciates you defending them on internet forums against the travesty of a single product being returned.
@studentl0an: Won’t Someone Please Think of the Children, i mean amazon!
would this have been unpatched for cracking
you never know , that's why i hesitated as well !
to be able to run SX core any homebrew you need to know the serial before buying sadly :(
this version can be hacked.
How are you so sure? Not all 2017 models can be hacked as some of them are patched.
Doubtful, only the early variants of this model are hackable
Correct, the problem was corrected quite early, this console came out 3rd March 2017, so there's a whole 9 months of a "2017 model" that it could be any one of, and I'm guessing it definitely isn't a launch version.
They found a pallet behind the pee bottles.
History is made! The first significant discount on the Nintendo Switch console, which has been hovering between around $400 since launch.
Hitting 1, 2, 3, or even 4 years old couldn't budge the price.
Even a new gen of it's rival home consoles being released, making it the weakest-powered console of the previous generation still didn't shift it.
It took 4 years, 3 months, and what can only be the unexpected finding of a lost shipping container of old-version switches, for it to finally come anywhere near the $300 price point.
Literally bought it for $329 (was like $295 after cashback) nearly 3 years ago?
What history has been made?
Checked that link and had a laugh, the comments thought the price still sucked and was gonna be better next year.
If only the poor sods knew what Big N does with their first-party products, no significant discounts for life EVER.
They can and will sell you an N64 virtual console game for $29.99 in 2021, because they can.
Wuh oh. I was gonna sell my v1 for around this price for the upcoming Pro.
Wonderfool, I'll give you $325 for your V1 when the pro comes out. Keep me in mind for quick sale.
Excellent deal on a hekate vulnerable model. I have a few and well worth it for the homebrew and exploit scene.
As discussed above, no guarantee it'll be vulnerable, but worth a punt perhaps
Agree, I grabbed my extras from Costco before the Tegra patch was implemented and big Nintendo Switch shortage, wanting to ensure I had a spare or two.
Now $1,305. That's a little bit of a price jump.
What's the valued price for hackable gen 1 switches anyway?
A lot if you hack it load it with hundreds of games and donate it to a 3rd world country to those kids can’t afford a gameboy yet.
Well I guess the launch switch I sent to Brazil is either being treated well or hacked to obliviation at this point.
Market place seems to have them flooded for 300 though.
V1 unpatched? I don't think so.
$300? You are dreaming.
What someone is prepared to pay, nothing like the Nintendo Switch shortage prices we were seeing. They are a great investment if you can pick one up it's, it's a super active modding scene.
I am looking at picking up a pre-owned unpatched one for $350 with the RCM-JIG. If people are interested in doing a group buy, please PM me. Maybe the seller can offer a discount if we do a group buy?
Received mine. It’s the v2 model.
Me too, just delivered (on a Sunday, weird). It's not a 2017 version as advertised but is the new V2 XKW version.
