    would you guys get one right now for hacking purposes knowing there're no public hacks for it or any guarantee one will come out in the future?

    Are you talking about the new3DS or the New2DS?
    Because there's been public hacks for the new3DS for years now, I know because all of my systems are hacked (new3DS and old3DS.) As for new2DS, chances are that it's running the same board as the new3DS and will have the same exploits.

    I wouldn't. Who knows when a hack might come out for it?

    If you meant getting a new 3DS on 11.4, anyways. I know there's Homebrew on n3DS systems, but still.

    No, I'd just keep searching for one that hasn't been updated.

    I would take it if it were my only option tho, I have almost all of my games on carts anyways.

    i'm talking about a used n3ds that has been updated to the latest fw, n2ds xl will probably come with 11.3 pre installed when it's released, at least the first batches

    I just noticed that now.
    It wouldn't be worth buying a system on 11.4, when every system on the market is either going to be on 11.3 or below.

    a used n3ds updated to 11.4 i feel would be a utter waste since there are fully hackable systems out there with 11.3 or lower

    i already own the o3ds and the n3ds xl, but was looking into upgrading my o3ds to a regular sized new 3ds
    the problem is that they're impossible to find in stores right now and are probably already out of production.

    The new3DS (non-XL) was only made in limited print in the US. They are mostly released for events like Black Friday.

    they've been sold out in europe for a while now too, which leads me to believe they're already out of production and are being replaced by the n2dsxl
