    No actually, it's a more likely way of getting one with 11.3/11.4 installed.

    Nintendo updates to whatever the latest firmware is at the conclusion of the refurb process, they are then put in storage to be sold.

    So a (small) number of refurbs have 11.4 installed, and from this point on all refurb'd consoles will have 11.5 installed.

    Whereas all new/sealed old2DSes are guaranteed to be below 11.4, way below in most cases.

    If OP isn't prepared to buy a new old2DS, then a refurbished one is definitely an option, but it's still a gamble.

    Only New 2DS XL come with 11.4. If you buy refurb, You have a high chance of coming with a new firmware

    Only the best game ever. Virtue's Last Reward.

    You should play 999 first though (a DS game) then pay Virtue's Last Reward, then Zero Time Dilemma.

    They are my favourite games ever now, beating Zelda Ocarina of Time even taking into account the nostalgia factor. And beating Portal, Banjo-Kazooie, and Beyond Good and Evil.

    Not to mention that it makes sense as to why the hinge wobbles like that, try lying down on your bed with your belly up, playing your 3DS.
    This is where the wobbly screen comes in handy as well.
    I'm getting the PS4 remaster tho
