Following a hacker’s stern warning to Nintendo Switch owners thinking of pirating games, Nintendo has started banning individual certificates of Nintendo Switch Game Cards.
However, it appears that the ban does more than just banning the pirate’s Switch console. If the banned Game Card is used on another Nintendo Switch, the other system will be banned when it goes online, and so on.
This may make the pre-owned market a large minefield, since no one can tell whether a Game Card has been banned by Nintendo. There will definitely be innocent gamers who unknowingly purchase a banned Game Card and get banned.
