[SWITCH][News][FAKE] "Hacker Extraordinaire" Plays "The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time" with a N64 Emulator on Nintendo Switch

A few days ago a tabloid paper know as "mirror.co.uk", posted a; 
Nintendo Switch story so unbelievable, I had to immediately get to the bottom of it. 

Short story, long, a man from the West coast of Canada, used the old/now new, Webkit IOS Exploit on the Switch and got it to run a N64 Emulator as well as a Playstation 2 Emulator.

The "Hacker" known as "Good Guy Biker" then proceeded to post pictures & videos to various social media platforms, to document his success.

Quickly he was met with skeptics who pointed out flaws in his videos;
such as Link moving without Input; which the hacker claimed was because of "Joy-Con Lag".

During the Video he also mentions the "lag" from pressing the Jump Button and hearing Link make the Sound for jumping but there is no jump button in n64 zelda games.



It turns out the Webkit Exploit to "jailbreak" the Switch isn't giving access to much of the internal workings as of right now, and loading an emulator using it is currently not possible. All users are currently using the exploit for is loading various webpages, such as Youtube.com.

Its possible that this man just loaded a Youtube video of "Ocarina of Time Gameplay" and  pretended to play the game...FOR TEN MINUTES, talk about time on your hands!

It's a shame that mirror.co.uk picked up this story and believed it to be true, all they needed to do was a little fact checking. Good Guy Biker is defending himself meanwhile receiving A LOT of dislikes on his Youtube Channel.

Regardless he has gotten his result to become an "Overnight Celebrity" -so Cheers to his success in that aspect. If you can cash in on something ,why not? As long as it doesn't really hurt anyone, looking at you GW...just kidding.

This Webkit Exploit for the Switch does leave me wondering if playing "Online Emulators" from a embedded webpage would somehow work on the Switch? Too bad I don't have one to try out! (go donate right now!, just kidding;)

There's TONS of REAL News regarding the Switch and the "Mods" people are doing to their consoles. There is also a lot of chatter from developers, chiming in on how they will be making games for the Switch!

More Switch stuff to come, Hopefully some Good 3DS news As well!
