Nintendo – ✔ Pirated games – ✔ Lawsuit – ✔✔

Nintendo stirred things up by filing class-action lawsuits. All of them are against individuals who have found customers to sell software to run Nintendo Switch’s pirated games to.

According to Polygon and their obtained court documents, Tom Dilts Jr. from Ohio received the first lawsuit. Allegedly, Tom runs the UberChips website. The 2nd lawsuit was filed against a few anonymous defendants in Seattle. They were all accused of accompanying piracy tools and selling an unauthorized operating system under the nickname of “Team Xecuter.” They wanted to hack the Nintendo Switch, thus getting around the security measures. Once the security is disabled, players can freely play pirated games on their consoles with no charge.

The Nintendo Switch pirate kit was being sold for $47.99. There are other kits, which can enable piracy-ROMs for the PlayStation Mini, SNES Classic, Game Boy Advance, and Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo is seeking $2,500 per single trafficking violation in each and one of these cases. Also, the company wants a permanent injunction to stop operations of these defendants’ websites.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
