    'Sup guys.

    Looking into buying myself a new 3DS XL thru amazon.de for Gateway 3DS needs, however there is a question about firmware preinstalled on those that are available.

    I've fancied some things about current situation:

    3DS manufactured earlier than the last quarter of 2012 have <4.1, which is not good.
    3DS later than May 2013 have 4.6>, which is also not good.

    Does this http://awesomescreenshot.com/0a31m08d5a looks legit enought to warrant compatible FW version or not? (Erscheinungsdatum means Release Date)
    http://www.amazon.de/Nintendo-3DS-X...F8&qid=1376564656&sr=1-1&keywords=3ds+xl+weiß. Or any others of the kind with "good" release dates...

    Or should I look into bundles, if yes, which ones are good?

    Will appreciate any info on this :)

    One's inner self
    anything on 4.5.0 or lower is fine
    as you can update to that using cartridges

    you wont know until you get it

    if it has 2011 or 2012 on the box you know its fine

    My white 3DS XL from Amazon.de was on 4.4, Copyright 2013. Ordered just a few days ago.
    Just try it.
    Even the black 3DS XL was on 4.5, also Copyright 2013.

    Yes is there a way to possibly say which firmware a 3ds has for thew box of it?
    I know that boxes with 2011 and 2012 are under 4.5 but boxes 2013 above ....

    It would appear 2011 and 2012 boxes are safe, 2013 would be a gamble ( more on the losing side)
