    Friend just got this console with FW1163XXXX[6] and it ended up having 5.5.0. Back to Walmart that one will go.

    Going to go to another store to see if I can get some FW113 (like mine) or with a . 4's or 5's ...

    I didn't think they made any new ones of this bundle. Store says they've had them for a while.
     
    I pwned U!, SANNIC789 and NWPlayer123 like this.

    Models are harder to come by ... Seems Nintendo quickly exchanged older units for newer ones since 5.3.2 ... but not a single 5.4 unit ... WTF

    Any advice on where to get one?

    I just recently purchased a Skylanders Trap Team Bundle at an online-shop after they drastically reduced the price to get rid of them. It came with 4.0.2.

    Why not just look at the online serial database for wii u and go looking for bundles online then?

    Apart from that you could try eBay. Thats always a good source for consoles.
    Just ask the people directly for the firmware.

    If you're in the US, here's a hint...Gamestop has Swap Force Bundles you can buy online or search for locally

    I can confirm that FW42965XXXX also comes with 5.5.0 (not listed on the serial database).

    5.3.2/5.4.0 systems are really rare now.

    Edit: This is for the US and the Mario Kart 8 Bundle as well.

    I honestly didn't think Nintendo would make more Wii U's for that bundle ... Assumed they stopped at 5.4 since nobody is freaking buying these things anymore ... especially at $299. Price should be at $249 to stimulate people to buy a wii u with their Mii phone app that was released.

    Skylanders you say ? I have a 5.3.2 version of Smash so I can just update it for him. What about the Mario 3d World.

    if you can find a 3D World bundle near you, i'd pick that up for a better value. and it would likely already be 5.3.2 as long as it was a NEW bundle. but the swap force is probably old stock, but you could buy online

    Keep the bundle, buy a 5.3.2 wii u on ebay like I did for $150, then sell your 5.5.x wii u for $150.

    15 day return policy - no questions asked with receipt. (could of taken the mk8 dlc code because they did such a crappy job checking).
