Back when I was a teenager I thought that I would be a PC gamer forever, because PC gaming was superior in my mind, probably had a little to do with 4chan memes too. But I am starting to change opinion, a console is looking more and more attractive now that I'm older. I don't really care about hardware anymore, it feels like things move so fast now, I don't even know what the newest hardware is and whatever it is it is way too expensive. I just wanna lounge on a couch and play games with a controller and not worry about hardware specs or compatibility or whatever, just have fun.

So the thing is, I don't know anything about console gaming, haven't owned one since the ps2. Is there anything I should know? What sort of gamers does each console cater to? What does each console offer? How long are console's life-spans these days? Is it too late to get in on the current gen? I would like anyone to describe their joys with console gaming.

A PS4 exploit was released today for a newish firmware, did I mention that even piracy is easier on console? No weird patches and viruses, since the security is on the console and not in the game once the console is hacked is literally install the game, the console does the word.

>Implying you're not a slave to the jew already.


When I last followed the state of playstation privacy, you could only run games that were 1 or 2+ years old, had to always worry about which firmware you're on, ruined console if you update accidentally, couldnt connect online at all or risk Sony bricking you, had to keep checking and hoping for a firmware to get hacked or released, etc


anyone know some good 2-player switch games i could try getting installed for my siblings prior to christmas?



the new Mario Party is really good


The hardware hackable models are identifiable by their serial number
There is a list there. These are the ones that can't be patched out. Newest models are technically hackable, but through software execution tricks that the Switch's OS can detect. Sellers on eBay are smart to list if their switch is hackable through hardware, but smarter to know to charge full-bundle prices for just the tablet portion. You'd probably want just the tablet though because Joycons from release time are all pretty worse for wear and the analogue sticks from then suffered from various drift issues. Refurbished joycans, docks, pro controllers, better third-party controllers, replacement batteries and full shells can all be found on Amazon. An RCM jig can be substituted with a paper clip as you said, but a solid jig helps if you want to swap between homebrew and vanilla FW to play online.


Thanks for the help folks.
I bought one tonight for like 400ish bucks, seller claims serial is XAW1000. Hopefully they didn't "accidentally" add an extra zero and it's good to go.
So far I got Smash, but I will look into that too. I found someone putting it on OneDrive but first zip didn't work after downloading it.
That was one of the first things I looked up. Good to hear it's actually decent.


Have they fixed the joy con issues on the oled switch?


how much do you weigh?


Been reading that it is extremely easy to get console banned with a switch. Does anyone have a good idea of practice on how to pirate games while avoiding ban triggers? I do not intend for my siblings to play online with the switch (for now anyway). I wanted to pirate a bunch of games and have them installed by Christmas so they can enjoy the switch together over winter break, and retain the possibility of online play in the future with greater exploits or actually purchasing game licenses.


Following up, I figured out from some more searching that I should just use emunand and give it no internet access for piracy. Maybe there is more to it. My new question is how to overcome the missing sigpatch problem with Gold leaf/Quark. I updated to 13.2 through Daybreak. I have a few games like Smash Bros Ultimate and Mario Kart successfully installed.


Another update: don't get sigpatches from gbatemp like I did. The ones from the FAQ linked on 4chan/vg's console hacking thread are better. Installed the ten-odd games I was previously unable to with no further issues.


Just found out my brothers cracked the screen on the switch I got them for christmas. Kids are so fucking stupid.


i've yet to see a kid's smartphone or other electronic device without a cracked screen. tablets, ipads, phones. they just get a new one from their parents every eyar anwyays. absolutely insane


Children being rough and irresponsible
Oh no, who could have ever seen or expected that?
It totally isn't typical behavior of kids at all.


It really isn't


You're right, nobody should ever post because then you will throw a tantrum.


I had many portable gaming devices as a kid and I never broke them. They aren’t that hard to keep intact.


Who would go and lie on the internet? For what purpose?


It's clearly a third world fag butthurt that they can't afford consoles, they act like they're PC master race when they have CPUs and GPUs from ten years ago.


you are lucky. you either dont have any interactions with kids, or the kids behave themselves. my sister's kids have a drawer full of 2 broken laptops, keyboards, mice, headsets, and phones with cracked screens


I grew up on PC then switched to console for a time and am back on PC. I just shelled out money for an expensive laptop that overtime would come to be cheaper than a new console plus online subscriptions. I think a major part of me going back to PC is that I still enjoy Dota and CSGO which obviously aren't console friendly


Same. In fact, I was more careful with my devices back then because I knew I couldn't simply buy a new one.


They just put the main modder of the switch in prison for 3 years and fined him 14.5 million dollars.
Because modifying your own hardware and teaching people to modify their hardwear in console land is quite literally a crime.

Meanwhile I can do whatever I want to my PC hardwear.


>Meanwhile I can do whatever I want to my PC hardwear.
Depending on the manufacturer, it is just as illegal to modify your PC. Nintendo is infamously bad about this though.


Has anyone been fined millions of dollars and thrown in jail for modifying their pc?
I am going to guess no.


I think there's a significant split. Some children are careful, some are degenerate pieces of shit. Not sure of the percentage split or even which is most common. I was always very careful. I remember lending other children my games and judging whether they were rats that could be trusted or not. Some were fine, some would destroy anything they touched, scratching any game disc in 5 minutes somehow

I don't know I'd have to look it up.


Eh he was selling hardware hacks to pirate games that are almost entirely illegal, he wasn't just posting instructions about how to hack the device "and do whatever the fuck you want" those are everywhere and no one ever bothers them (or the websites full of pirate PS4 and switch games) this faggot on the other hand was selling expensive hardware with the explicit purpose of pirating games.

Using the retarded "consolefags go to prison for piracy! meanwhile I can do whatever I want on my PC" argument doesn't make any sense because it's not directly comparable, a much better comparison would be if you were selling an expensive piece of hardware for PC that spoofed steam servers to download games for free.


the issue isn't modding hardware or distributing information about how to do the modding. it's selling the modded product that violated another's intellectual property. some people got into trouble for selling what was essentially copy replacement 'outer covers' for the playstation 5 because the design violated sony's ip. it's the reason why you can't just repaint an xbox blue and sell it as something else. the ip for computer hardware isn't really about the entire package. at best one company has an ip for the computer case, another for the motherboard (or many), ditto for the designs of connectors like usb (i think you have to pay royalties for included usb on your device). the way you would violate ip for a PC would be taking out for 3060 graphics card, modding it, and selling it as a new product. there is also the issue that the guy was selling a subscription service for access to pirated games. plus human beings are the ones making these decisions not robots, money is involved, precedents must be set, things become political fast. could be wrong, i also can't find super detailed info on what exactly the guy was doing. it seems all news sites just regurgitate the same 5 factoids

i have always been a console gamer. i have never played a pc game long enough to finish it


goddamn that's like 4000 calories. You eat that twice a day I bet you are a 600 pound motherfucker

wasnt superior back then when i saw my brother nut to a gta stripper on the ps2


The right side of this image is the only reasonably attainable reward I could obtain for fixing my wizardly behavior.

Consoles are to play online since it inhibits cheaters more. Pc to enjoy multiple games usually for offline, and cheaper if you know what you are doing. I play on the cloud because im not a boomer and do not need to play multiple games. If anything id get another pc before i get a console. Heck i could buy 4xbox controllers with that green toilet paper.


oh and by multiple games i mean the whole selection of games available on any console since you can emulate on pc and pirate kek


>Consoles are to play online since it inhibits cheaters more
but you have to pay an extra fee to play online on console.


it's true my bud had an amazing time in console elden ring while i was one shot 90% of the time i tried to fight anyone on pc


Did you try leveling vigor?

With amount of buffs and skill combos you really don't have to cheat to output massive damage with a properly set up build. Vigor is a must for pvp.

you cant put a cheat engine in a game console. You cant even pirate on console. The only way to truly cheat is by putting a strike pack or cronus zen on your controller. Which would only effect fps games that’s why i don't play fps games anymore. All pc fps players that are on top of the charts cheat. Thats why no one uses Adderall anymore and there are female “competitive players”


I'm sorry, but you can't be a wiz if you care about modern online multiplayer games.


Go play your 5000th round of quake you no fun faggot.

Modern multiplayer is a crowd-controlled virtual daycare. It's a hippie utopia of hand-holding, tattle-tailing, everyone wins nonsense. Even if the objective is to explode the boy's head, you're not allowed to smile when you do because that's not inclusive towards the people who couldn't. Microphone chatter is being recorded and scanned by a voice-recognizer in realtime for naughty chewing noises. Mistyping African country names gets you insta-banned from singleplayer. Better look up at the floating George Floyd monument for the required time to earn a weapon. Buy some goofy skins designed to bring awareness to misogynistic harassment in the game jounralism industry. It's kingergarten for people who are too mentally challenged to enroll in a real one. If you typed what you just typed in your post in to an EU4/EU5/Valve/Bathesda chatbox, your local authorities would be notified.

Private dedicated servers are the past, present, and future of online gaeming. I want to stab a guy in the balls, call his dog a lousy layabout, type his IP in chat, t-bag his corpse, and spray my Mussolini Smoking A Blunt logo in front of his spawn door. He wants to do the same to me. Mutual competition is born and good times are had. Quake was a great game, still is.


>Quake was a great game, still is.
if its so good then why is it dead, I havnt been able to find anyone to play with in 10 years except boomers that just play clan arena(the worst gamemode ever conceived and an atrocity on mankind)


this was week 1-2 on PC, 90% of the people were cheaters nothing to do with builds ive played souls since demons so I know what's legit or not


I'm too busy on fightcade. Modern fighting games are okay.

>if Quake is so good then why is it dead

because Quake 2 is better


fake outrage trying to stir up drama again, back to kotakuinaction with you wild crab


That conflicts pretty heavily with my personal experience playing on pc.
It was exceptionally rare for me to come across someone cheating in elden ring online when I did pvp.


Everything I typed is true.
