    I want to get a WIIU but I was wondering if the ones in the stores or Amazon have later system menus in them?
    I found this on Nintendo's site so i was wondering if the ones selling now have the latest system menu in them or what?
    Is there any way to know before you buy one? Is it on the box somewhere?

    I purchased one from BestBuy two days ago with 5.3.2 on it. It is worth a try, if not you can always return it. I got the Deluxe Model 32GB with Mario Kart 8 Pre-Installed. Well I did notice that my serial number is quite a low number something like: FW112XXXXX X maybe that helps. Try going with a low number on the serial number. Here is the one I got.

    Arrived, unfortunately it's 5.5. Fortunately discovered I can still sodftmod Vwii which is all I wanted in the first place. Going to block updates hopeful about 5.5 getting a kernel exploit later when it works properly anyways.
