    Thinking of buying a 3DS XL today. Can I expect a firmware below 9.3? Any serial number database that I can check against?

    Probably 100% chance below 9.3. The SSB XL edition came with 8.1 if I remember correctly which was just released a couple months ago.

    If you buy it brand new, it's 100% sure.

    If it's a second-hand, just ask/check before.

    I purchased a brand new black XL at a busy store about a month ago and it was 6.2.

    You would have to have some seriously rotten luck to get a >9.2 system. Just do the obvious thing and check if there are signs the box has been opened and make sure the store has a lenient return policy in case it turns out updated anyway. (could certainly happen, especially so soon after the Christmas return season)

    I honestly doubt Nintendo will ever make a >9.2 3dsXL given the new3dsXL has arrived.

    I purchased a brand new matte black black 3ds XL a few days ago, 8.1 firmware.

    It's 4.2 now.

    My previous XL which I bought a few weeks earlier was a Mario & Luigi Dream Team edition, it came 6.x.x (and I upgraded to 9.4 out of stupidity).

    I guess you'll be safer looking for a special edition one.
