    I know that if the box says 2012 you're golden but I'm fairly certain all the game stores around here are high movers and wouldn't have new 3DSs that old still in stock. Also they don't keep the actual units on the display floor so you'd have to awkwardly ask the attendant to keep fetching you a different new copy until you hit the right one (if it exists).

    Someone in this thread said that all new Flame Red and Aqua Blue 3DSs are 4.1-4.5, is this really true though? So if I order one of these colors new on Amazon it will sure bet be the right firmware?

    Try eBay seller 'comesaleway'. He often lists them as Gateway Compatible.

    Thank you, searching gateway compatible works too on ebay. He's got some up now but they're used and I'd prefer to buy new.

    Anyone know about new Flame Red/Aqua Blue being sure fire 4.1-4.5?

    Why not just buy it at Walmart, target?? They didn't question me in my search for 3.55 ps3, they just have an electronic department guy come check the package, make sure everything is there but that's it

    on the french forum Xavbox, few users reported Amazon sent a copyright 2012 with updated firmware. (Amazon either update it, or users send them back and amazon repackage them as new).

    You'll have better chance to go to a shop instead of buying by internet.
