    Just purchased a used 3DS XL with fw 4.5. Includes the box, 2 games, AR cards, ac adapter, and stylus. Seller said it has a minor scratch on the shell. I think it's a decent price to purchase a used XL for. What do you think? Would love your opinion 'Tempers!

    I guess it all depends on how much shipping is going to run you and what 2 games are included.

    Considering the fact that I got my used regular 3DS for that exact price, I'd say it was an excellent deal.

    I don't care much for the games it comes with, mostly got it because of the 4.5 fw. I figured a new 3DS may not come with that fw and would run me $200+
    I'd say it's a fair price not exactly a bargain but fair.

    edit: shipping is $15 bucks.

    Well considering it's $50 on retail, like you said that's a fair price for a used system, but since it's 4.5 (and I assume you're after the Gateway and whatever else might pop up) finding it is a good thing too.

    Yeah hopefully it's in the condition the seller described.

    Hey Rydian does the - after 4.5 matter? e.g. 4.5-0.10U

    edit: Let me be specific, does it matter as it pertains to Gateway compatibility?

    As long as the first 2 digits are 4 and 5, the remainder does not matter :)

    Thanks porkiewpyne!

    edit: So I picked up the 3DS XL this morning in person and saved $15 in shipping costs and week's wait, not bad! It is indeed fw 4.5!

    Take no notice, you don't have to explain yourself.
