Nintendo American has filed two lawsuits against Nintendo Switch hack resellers. The resellers have caused a lot of issues for Nintendo, by selling software that allows them to play pirated video games. The Lawsuit files obtained by Polygon reported that a website created by Tom Diltis Jr might go down.
The first lawsuit filed against UberChips, who are selling products from a group of anonymous hackers called the “Team Xecuter”. According to Nintendo, these services offer “an unauthorized operating system … and accompanying piracy tools that install it.”
“Team Xecuter unlawfully designs and manufactures an unauthorized operating system (“OS”) called the “SX OS,” and accompanying piracy tools that install it (the “Circumvention Devices”). The Circumvention Devices— offered, distributed, and trafficked by Defendants, Wrote the Lawsuit
The second lawsuit has been filed against various anonymous defendants in Seattle, that are also selling these cheat items. Moreover, the case settled against the first site UberChips is offline. However, the anonymous websites that are selling Hacking Kits for Nintendo Switch for $47.99 are still operating.
Lastly, these sites are also offering pre-orders for the devices. Nintendo says that this has caused them a lot of harm, and these defendants have made a lot of money. They said hundreds of the devices have been sold. Hence, they are now demanding $2,500 per trafficking violation in each case.
