Hello everyone, I am from Italy and this is my first message. Sorry for my poor English I was going to buy a used 3DS XL, but because, here in Italy, owners sell it at prices equal to the new (150-160 €, even more), I thought to buy it new in a store. I have discarded the DSi and the DSi XL because I could not play all the new games released for the 3DS. I read on the internet that the Gateway cards, the ones able to run games with extension .3 ds, only work on consoles with firmware from 4.0 to 4.5. So, the question is: what firmware version has a Nintendo 3DS XL bought today, Oct. 2014, in a store? I would take the Gateway card just to run the games released for the Nintendo 3DS. I'm not interest in 3D feature, so I do not care if with the Gateway card I won't be able to play in 3D. Thanks!!
