    Time of when it is bought does not matter if the suppler has old stock.

    You need to go by serial number, I think there was a guide somewhere about this.

    Odds are though it came between 4.5+/-9.2

    I'm probably going to assume it's newer stock since it's from Best Buy. I really want it to be 9.0-9.2 for Gateway support but if I have to use a Sky3DS I will. As a side note, do you know of any way to update to 9.2 with a gamecart or something? Back in the day I did something similar with a DSi

    If it matters, I had a super mario brothers edition, yellow box, and it came with 8.1. At the time I needed to update to 9.2, luckily I updated the weekend before that Monday of the release 9.3

    Looks like I'll have to use the Sky3DS unfortunately. Hopefully Gateway comes out with a 9.4 update.

    I second that.
    I got the yellow-boxed NSMB2 edition 3DS XL (Red outside with Gold Mario and Luigi art and black inside). They were first available for sale on Nov. 28th. It came with 8.1. From what I have read on this forum all USA 3DS XL special editions for many months now have shipped with 8.1.

    This is what it looks like if you haven't seen it:
