Nintendo offers $20,000 to those that can hack the Switch


To close those security loopholes, of course.

Nintendo is offering hackers up to $20,000 USD to hack its latest console, the Switch.

This isn’t a new move by the publisher; they’ve offered hackers cash to hack their consoles for some time now. The idea is, the hackers find loopholes, report them to Nintendo, and Nintendo closes them.

The news of this latest bounty is via HackerOne, who reports that Nintendo is offering $100 to $20,000 USD to hack the Switch.

Time to get hacking?

The Switch hit store shelves in early March. We reviewed the console here.
