    There's a possibility it could be... it might just be the same internal components just with a different shell... I am going to try getting one at Best Buy and checking out the version, if it is higher then 4.5 I'll just return it...

    Don't get it at Best Buy. It's gonna be on sale at Target for $175 with the rest of the XL's.

    Also, be sure to let us know the firmware when you guys get one. I would have gotten a black XL at Target, but I ended up buying a red XL a few days ago... ):

    It's highly doubtful. Animal Crossing 3DS XL came with 5.1 firmware, and that was released around a month or two ago.

    Weird how I have not seen any Mario & Luigi - Dream Team yet in store here in the U.S? Maybe just the one that I'm at that haven't stock any?

    Mine came w/ 5.1.0U, for those wanting to know.

    That's not the worst thing in the world for me I guess... I was trying to decide which 3DS (my "regular" 3DS or the XL I was about to buy) I would keep on 4.5 and which I would keep up to date but Nintendo made that decision for me. So I guess I'll be updating the XL to 6.X.X and my ambassador unit will stay at 4.5 until an exploit for higher version FW is found.

    Looking forward to trying out the relay spot pass Nintendo Zone spoofing, it's only feature beyond 4.5 so far that's made me want to update.

    But have you ever thought about gettingn Gateway 3DS cart? Upgrading it won't allow Gateway to work anymore.

    The whole point of me buying a second unit was to leave one at "hackable" firmware while keeping the other one up to date. The XL came w/ v5 firmware, it is already beyond the point of the GW working in the GW's current state. Not to suggest that the GW team can't update it to work on v5+ firmwares, but it made the decision about which unit to up date and which to keep at 4.5 a whole lot easier. Should I buy a GW or someone else releases a hack for 4.5 I'll still be able to use it, and in fact it's probably better that it's on my non-XL 3DS as it's more portable and the one I'm more likely to pick up and put in my pocket when I go some where... The XL doesn't fit well in the breast pocket of my Scottevest. :-/
