Nintendo Can 'Perfectly Detect' and Ban Pirate Switch Games

Nintendo Can 'Perfectly Detect' and Ban Pirate Switch Games”

Microsoft and Nintendo released a joint advertisement this week showcasing the ability to play "Minecraft" across the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. And Minecraft is becoming only the second game on the Switch to allow its players to interact with those on PC and Xbox (the first being Fortnite). It's hard not to view this emphasis on in-game co-operation as also referencing the co-operation between Microsoft and Nintendo, which in turn highlights Sony's absence from the partnership.

Fans of Minecraft will likely already be well aware that the Nintendo Switch version of the game received a big update today, bringing the new Bedrock Engine to the console, among other changes.

EU Slaps Reprisal Tariffs On $3.4 Billion In U.S. Goods
The United States in 2017 accounted for about 15 percent of worldwide Mercedes-Benz and BMW brand sales. US President Ronald Reagan hits pasta imports from Europe in order to protect the domestic industry.

Sony isn't mentioned anywhere in the video, but it's clear the trailer takes a passive-aggressive jab at the company's stubbornness around cross-play.

Eventually, there may be custom firmware that allows users to play pirated games offline, cutting out Nintendo's authorisation systems from the equation. Ultimately, the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch aren't in direct competition with one another.

'Star Wars' Spinoffs Suspended After Tepid 'Solo' Box Office
It's no secret, at this point, that Solo: A Star Wars Story didn't live up to Disney's expectations at the box office. Those films aren't part of the Star Wars Story branding, and are still going ahead as planned.

In other words, pirating games is always a lose-lose situation and users should always support the developers by purchasing the great titles available on platforms such as the Nintendo switch. At that point, the ideal console setup might be to have both an Xbox One and a Nintendo Switch, or at least a Nintendo Switch and an Xbox subscription.

Microsoft and Nintendo are best buddies. The official Xbox UK twitter was quick to capitalize on the widespread discontent, poking fun at Sony by asking Nintendo UK: "wanna play some Fortnite later?". However, the recently leaked PS4 Fortnite bundle looks to show when and how players will be able to do so. Via the PlayStation Italia Facebook page, a new Fortnite PS4 bundle is on the way and comes with an exclusive skin and 500 V-Bucks. This makes it a relatively slim margin between Sony and Microsoft, with a similar result happening previous year, but with the companies flipped.
