Is there any chance this could happen?
"older firmware" meaning under 11.0? i'm sure that's likely.
Yes that's exactly what I meant. Preferably 10.7> since I can downgrade and play legit CIAs.
I've never seen a game store actually update their firmwares before selling a product. Even the local Gamestop's demo 3DS is on 6.something
Here's what you do. Go to a store, buy a 3DS. in the parking lot carefully open the packaging, boot it up (should have some battery power in it) and check the firmware. If it's on 11.0 just return it to the store saying you just got a phone call that your mom/wife/girlfriend/uncle/trained chimpanzee went and bought one as well and you'd like to return it. Most stores won't make a fuzz, and I think in your country they're required to refund you even. Then go to a different store and try again. Or use a different excuse to replace it with another 3DS. like "This one has a TN screen and i want a IPS screen" (don't say its broken though, they might throw it in the trash or send it back to nintendo, and that'l cost them money)
As long it isnt a refurb or a 2nd hand unit, it's likely it comes in firmware 10.7 or lower, which is the best fw to downgrade to 2.1 and hack it.

Thank you guys. I think I'll buy a new one. One last question though. If I buy one online will it be the same?
Careful with buying online, you might get a refurb if buying from amazon or similar.
I would buy from retail...
I thought of buying from a well know Swedish gaming site since it's cheap there. What do you think?
I would buy from retail, as the chance of there being a refurb is low.
But you can always ask them if it's refurbished or second hand before buying.
Also, congrats for the 100th post
Thanks m9. I'll think about it!
I would do retail too, because if it happens to be on 11.0 you can return it immediately instead of having to ship it back. But if you do it online then you just have to wait for it to get refunded if it happens to be on 11.0. Which isn't the end of the world.
Thank you for your help!
If if remember my cousin got a O3DS with 9.5 firmware (it was just at 10.4 release after kernel fixes ) and he could play game with it.
I think in amazon sometimes they definite firm (not sure for amazon, saw that on ebay, but don't trust ebay.. ) But i'd go retail too..
I wonder what would happen if i ask the shop for a specific version lol
You can't even buy O3DS's anymore. At least not new ones. They only sell the O3DS XL now.
Hmm, not sure ( at least in my country they do sell everything, i stilll can find PS2's huh ).
And O3DS XL is probably the choice of everybody, with 30 $ difference iirc you have bigger screens an more comfortable playing right?
Is that so...

You have a point. I could still order an O3DS online though.
That GBAtemp shop too never reallt got inside but i think it have other things that cards hmm?
Well I know they stopped manufacturing O3DS's. Stores like Gamestop still might have some new ones in stock.
Well i'd think they still should be, as if Nintendo have success with 2DS's she won't stop sending regular O3DS"s?
