Is It Worth Buying A Banned Nintendo Switch?
Modding a Nintendo Switch is the primary reason most consoles get banned, so you should definitely think twice before jailbreaking your Switch. However, if you’re buying a banned console, you should know what you’re getting into, and there’s plenty to experiment with a modded Switch.
The number one draw of a jailbroken Switch is the immediate access to homebrew content. Of course, things like cheats and mods for games are popular, but if your Switch isn’t already banned, Nintendo will likely bring the hammer down on your console. Jailbreaking also gives you access to emulators, which have always been incredibly popular within Nintendo’s player base. You can access GameBoy, GameCube, Wii, and other console games on your Switch by emulating those consoles using the Switch’s hardware. Of course, many of these are available through a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, but if you bought a banned console, you can’t access those features.
You can also get access to custom themes through jailbroken homebrew content. Given the Switch’s lack of customization, players took it upon themselves to change the console’s interface, allowing others to give their Switch the makeover of their dreams. If you’re using an already banned Switch, modding it lets you go crazy, and it’s really the only thing you can use the console for.
