I'm kind of new to the scene and have a few questions - sorry if they are obvious to you.
I've got a Switch, with a good serial number & have an SX OX Pro arriving soon. I've never been online with it, haven't even typed in my WIFI password.
I'm not bothered about online play or eShop at all, considering I can get everything here. If we can't download firmware updates, I'm happy to do it manually.
My concern is with the actual bans though.
Am I likely to get locked out of anything by updating the firmware to play new games?
Is there a possibility of the big "N" bricking consoles in the future?
Would a full NAND backup help with this?
If after a ban I can continue to update and play games, then that's fine. Am I worrying unnecessarily?
Hello and welcome, No you have a wounderful qusten that I be more then happy to answer for you.
Congrats first off on getting a switch that had not been patched at all. Thats put you a head by a lot. Now if you do not and will not enter the wifi password you should be 100% free* in the clear. Now you more then likely seen that I have put a star above the 100%, the reason I did that is because you have brought up being bricked. Right now you will be fine, there is a chance in the feture that it could be a concern but even if it is, I hightly dout that the big "N" could brick you system because its not online at all, and there is no way to brick it unless they come to your door and ask for your switch lol. So as of now your A-ok. If it does make you feel better you can do a NAND back up if you want, but you will have to really look into on how to do it right because if some thing goes wrong it can toast the switch. I hope that answers your post and do not worrie about worrying unnecessarily because your not, your being a smart gamer and thats not thing to feel bad about
