Nintendo obviously doesn’t want anybody modifying its consoles. The company is extremely vigilant in trying to stop the modding community. In fact, they recently took down an eBay auction for a Nintendo Switch because the seller mentioned it was even possible to mod it.
No (talk of the existence of) modding allowed
It seems strange that Nintendo wouldn’t let somebody sell their Switch just because they mentioned modification. Perhaps Nintendo didn’t want eBay shoppers to know it was even possible. Throughout the years, Nintendo has taken a number of measures to combat piracy. These include shutting down ROM websites and implementing anti-piracy measures in their system updates. However, it’s unlikely the company will ever stop piracy for good.
No matter what side you take, this most recent eBay takedown is sure to add more fuel to the fire on Nintendo’s policies. What do you guys think? Should Nintendo have left the listing alone? Did they act within their rights? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
