    Like an idiot I've been leaving my Wii U on connected to the internet and it's updated to 5.5. I'm considering getting a new Wii U running the old firmware.

    Is there a way to determine the firmware on a Wii U from the box, such as a website that could tell me based on the model number?

    Are there likely to be any Wii U consoles for sale still running the old firmware?

    Thanks for any help!

    now would be a good time to buy one, there are a few sets with low firmwares if you check out the definitive guide in the stickys.

    Buying a pal wii u from Uk with different plug for power means that I only need to change the power supply?

    you should be fine to just swap the plug on it or use an adapter, Greece and UK both use 230v
