To clarify the question, if I were to buy a 3DS right now, what Firmware Version would it probably be on? (I live in Germany, but it would probably be about the same in every country... right? o.o)
I already own a 3DSXL on FW 5.X and I'm interested in buying a new normal 3DS for 2 reasons
1. Pokemon X/Y - I'm gonna buy both on release, so my sister and I can play. Need a second 3DS, so we can both play at the same time (was extremely nerve wracking to wait for her to finish Mystery Dungeon, before I could finally play it -.-) and so we can trade the 3 Starters to each other
2. Gateway 3DS if its worth it (will see after release/review by Devin) I hate spending 40-50€ for a game, that I only play an hour or so and then never again... so having Gateway 3DS I could test the games beforehand and then decide whether to purchase them or not :-)

Owning Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates to Infinity (EU) I should be able to do the 4.5 FW upgrade, in case the 3DS FW is lower than that, right?


Thanks in advance


Edit for the mods: In case the thread title might be misleading, feel free to change it :-)

And the black XL? Came out on March 27 in Europe but I've seen in stores in some boxes puts 2012. Not if chances.

Mine black XL from amazon.de bought on Jul. 12 has 4.5 preinstalled.
So, for people who want to use gateway, it's a very good idea to buy the console now, until stocks last.

Look on the back of the box. There you'll see in what year the 3DS was made. Buy one from 2012 because 5.0 wasn't released back then.
