Nintendo has filed two lawsuits against resellers offering hacks for the Switch. Polygon reports the suits were filed on Friday; one in an Ohio court against Tom Dilts Jr and the UberChips website he allegedly runs, the other in a Seattle court against the anonymous defendants behind nine websites.
The two filings read much the same, with the platform holder asserting that the defendants "offer to the public devices, the sole purpose of which is to hack the Nintendo Switch video game console in order to allow people to play pirated video games."
Both suits claim the products the defendants sell are from anonymous hacking group Team Xecuter, which produces the SX OS and "accompanying piracy tools that install it."
At the time of writing, all nine sites from the second suit are still live and offering the Xecutor hacks for Nintendo Switch.
However, UberChips appears to be offline, allegedly for maintenance, with a statement telling visitors: "An unfortunate set of events has happened."
The site says it is cancelling all pre-orders for its SX products and will begin processing refunds immediately.
"We intended no harm selling pre-orders of this product," the site reads.
