    I have seen a few AUS New 3DSs for sale. I would want a PAL version of the system, so these seem perfect. Anyone have any clue as to the system number the AUS models are shipping with?

    (Obviously, I'm looking to get a 9.0-9.2 system for potential Gateway things.)

    Any good online retailers or eBay sellers stocking these to the UK?

    Thanks

    I believe there's a few. You have play-asia which ships fairly quickly, fishpond comes straight from Australia (ships slower though), and a few others iirc.

    Yeah, The Australian N3DS is EXACTLY the same as the PAL ones, no difference.

    yeah i got mine from there, i know its probably going to end up all EU/US launch consoles having 9.0-9.2.....but if by some chance they aren't the aus consoles would no doubt shoot up in price......even though i have had it for getting on for 2 months now...having another play-through of OoT was good, shame my mario kart is a 1.0 version so no online with that.....so still be playing mostly on my normal 3ds xl as i cant get any updates from eshop on the n3ds....which is a shame....oh well im sure they will release "soon"
