    Really? I thought refurbished new 3ds are always at the latest firmware.

    Yup! I thought the same. I was talking to a hardmodder,but seems like I won't have to send my n3ds anymore.

    I think you can find older unity especially in small shops rather than in big electronic stores like Media Market, Euronics, Game, Best Buy

    That's pretty neat actually, I would have supposed they'd put the lastest firmware even on refurb units. Well the more you know :o

    They usually do if it's a refurb unit, same as if you send your 3DS for repair.

    not in the States, check 3dshacks on reddit. A lot of peeps have got refurbs with firmware less than 11.0 ...

    Have there been any recent confirmations of what firmware the refurbished 2ds systems from Nintendo come with?
