Presentation slides reveal more about the rumored crossover

Yesterday’s leak of the key art for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has led to more information about the still-unannounced Nintendo Switch turning up online.
It seems Ubisoft recently had a closed door presentation of their upcoming Switch game which will 'feature' Mario inside the Rabbids world, and of course the 'slides' leaked right away, and it at least helps to confirm the many rumors that game is real, but it leaves us with new questions about the gameplay itself, and how it all works out, and how much Nintendo has in their say in its overall design.

Recently, SIGHAX and Boot9Strap was released, but @SciresM (one of those that outlined Signax at 33c3), has decided to recent a few clues on what the next exploit step can be done on the 3DS, and it so far only works on the older Classic O3DS models (before the updated Newer/Faster N3DS ones), basically it works by using a physical Magnet to trick the lid switch until thinking your 3DS is closed still, and then you press and hold a few buttons, and the 3DS boots-up into special factory mode bypassing all security checks/firmware and loads the special ARM code you have crafted from an...

It's up to developers to decide how they want to leverage the power of the console.

Microsoft has clarified another major detail about the upcoming Project Scorpio console, this one answers the big question in regard to having framerates locked so the newer Xbox One is on 'parity' with the older Xbox One consoles during multiplayer gaming.
It seems that Microsoft is going to allow developers to decide what is best when it comes to their gamers meeting online during a session, with one using an older previous generation of Xbox One, battling it out with an more powerful Xbox One with better framerates, etc.

First Step Of Many Towards Reverse-Engineering The New Nintendo Switch Game Cartridges!

At early glance it seems Nintendo has upped the game to prevent Flashcards on their new console, by adding a extra 'security module' to each cartridge, instead of having just encryption on the console side like 3DS, its now on both sides of the bus interface.
As reported by @modrobert of EurAsia, there is a blog post on the Reverse-engineering site called Texplained regarding their recent progress on Decapping the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild game cartridge for the Nintendo Switch, it is a very nice in-depth 'teaser' to read, but the full report is not available yet, and sadly when it is they will add it to their 'online R-E catalog' for you to buy to read it all!
