    I know some of the XL models do but I want to know if the North American New 3DS models that aren't XL have firmware 9.2?

    Damn it, at least I can still run Ninhax and Themehax, right? How much better are the emulators compared to o3DS. Is it true that the SNES and GBA emulators run almost perfectly on n3DS compared to o3DS?

    I don't want to upgrade my current 3DS to 10.2 because I don't want to lose Themehax and have to go through Ninjhax, just to get to the Homebrew Lunacher. What do I do, get a 3DS with 9.5 and update my old one from 10.1 to 10.2? I want to use the n3DS for homebrew since it has faster emulators.

    I think I might get a 3DS XL since they have 9.2 and can run both .cia files and faster emulators.

    You can still do ninjahax and theme hax but I don't know about the emulators.

    If you can do both of those, then you can launch emulators and the best part about that is that I heard the n3DS runs SNES and GBA games full speed or near.

    Just so you know, most of the Australian non-XL New 3DS models come with 9.2.

    You shouldn't be buying a 3DS for emulation anyway, it's more of an added bonus that doesn't really work very well yet.

    So does this include EU N3DSes too?

    I can't be sure. They are the exact same model of course, but the Australian ones were released over half a year before the European ones.

    I bought a European New 3DS online and it came with 9.0.0-20E, serial no. YEM1010*****.
    Hope that helps. :)

    GBA, it sucks less balls than o3DS, but still sucks balls.

    Does it?

    I don't have a New 3ds to compare, but I've been wondering if the performance of a dstwo flashcart (using it's onboard cpu) would be superior and worth recommending to 03bgood over a New3ds.
    With the tempgba-mod emulator on the dstwo flashcart gba emulation is quite decent, with nearly all games running, though some do require frameskip.

    If he's talking about buying entirely new hardware to play gba games, that might be an avenue he should consider.

    GBA emulation is fine on n3DS.

    I meant the one that comes with the Starter Kit, it's pretty slow.
    But RetroArch is amazing
