    Based of this youtuber Nick Robinson who I got to speak to via twitter. He didn't get a chance to look at the firmware but he told me that when he started his N3ds xl he was promoted to update it

    Here's his video for his Unboxing of the N3ds xl

    I've been saying this for a while now if they didn't bother to update the Ambassador ones I don't think the xl or the regular one are gonna be any different.

    9.3 and 9.4 were released only 3 days apart, it wouldn't be very likely that production fell within that gap. This is a good sign, thanks for getting in touch with him! :)

    There's no way Nintendo would manufacture any units with that 3-day lifespan firmware.
    They would wait at least a couple of weeks for it to prove safe.

    I believe the launch XL's will be <=9.2 for certain.

    He's already downloading games from the eShop (based on his comments under the video) so I'm assuming he never took the time to look and see what the shipping firmware was. I think he just jumped right to updating to 9.4.

    I'm interested in how he got his hands on the N3DS XL U so early...

    Does Gateway 3.0.1 work with n3ds yet? Or did that not fix it yet from 3.0?

    I'm surprised no one has asked him to backup Majora's Mask and upload it ;)

    EDIT
    He just posted a pic of him downloading Majora's Mask. Where can I get one of those download codes at? haha

    I hardly think the early sale of one New3DSXL isn't enough for someone to lose their manager position. They'd have to find someone to take the job, has good managerial experience, and has enough knowledge about games to adequately fill the job. It isn't worth it.

    Besides, no one cares.

    How r u getting rid of your AUS N3DS? Ebay?

    if it's easy to sell then i'm gonna sell my n3ds too

    but since GW is region-free i don't know if it'll be worth the trouble
