Bowser chops the Nintendo Switch and is sued
It is somehow suitable for one of the biggest hacker groups to be listed around the Nintendo Switch by a man named Gary Bowser . The team XECUTE sold both hardware and software, which can be played, among other things, pirated copies on the switch.
Nintendo understandably does not agree. The video game giant allied with the US government and moved to Bowser and his hacker group in court. Already at the end of 2020, Gary Bowser was arrested in the Dominican Republic and transferred to the USA. While Team Xecuter defends itself, only for the programs of Hobby developers and for the right to repair , the US Department of Justice sees the difference. Thus, the primary benefits for the group products existed to play pirated copies. (Source: US Department of Justice)
