Nintendo implements 'strict' new anti-piracy measures for the Switch

JAPANESE GAMING FIRM Nintendo has implemented strict anti-piracy measures for its Switch console which could see some gamers permanently banned from connecting to the internet.

The news comes via self-styled console hacker "SciresM, who tweeted about how Nintendo can now quickly detect if a game you're trying to play online has been illegally purchased or pirated.

"Looks like we've got confirmation that Nintendo is banning gamecart certificates (I guess people aren't taking my advice...). The relevant error for trying to use a gamecard with a banned cert is 0x1F727C -- 2124-4025," SciresM said.

He also wrote a lengthy PSA on the SwitchHacks subreddit regarding the finding, where he describes what happens if you try and access the online gaming port with either a game cart or a digital copy.
