    This 3DS should be the one that ships with 9.0. I analyzed the serial number "2205832B". If this you can get any confirmation that the bar code is "045496502966", then the 3DS will match the serial YEM100956290.

    Please make sure that the serial is YEM100956290 and bar code is 045496502966. If it isn't, then your 3DS is not going to be coming with 9.0. Make sure this 3DS hasn't been opened before either. If it it has, then there is a chance the seller may have updated it.

    Then all you need to do is make sure that bar code matches. If it doesn't, then the serial is going to be off.

    It should be on the right side of the box. Your picture do not show any pictures of that side of the box.

    Someone should make a thread about guessing a 3ds firmware with the serial number.

    I've got a mail from the Seller:
    Hallo,
    Firmware sagt mir nichts, auf der Verpackung steht, das auf dem Gerät die europäische Version ist. Der Gerätecode ist: YEM100581829. Art-Nr.: 2205832B, Barcode: 045496502966.
    Das Gerät wurde am 02.08.2015 bei einer Verlosung gewonnen!

    So.. the new 3ds was bought at the 02.08.15 and the Barcode is right .. but the YEM is wrong :/ what now?

    Edit: Its still unused and he never Opened the Case of the 3ds

    Pew! *Out of the bag*
    I thought the firmware code was on the side of the package.. howsoever.. I think the barcode is identical to the serial otherwise he can't sell you that and your warranty expires. According to the serial, it must be a new3DS with 9.0
