Back in April, a Switch hack was discovered that can't be patched by Nintendo without Nvidia being asked to redesign the Tegra X1 processor. However, if you're tempted to download and play pirate copies of Switch games online, think again, as Nintendo can "perfectly detect" illegal copies of Switch titles.

As IGN reports, Reddit user SciresM carried out research on how Switch games are authorized when played online. It turns out Nintendo implemented a four stage process which allows for "very strong anti-piracy measures."

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.
