    It should come with 9.0 IIRC, I don't plan to buy a n3DS XL so I really don't know, most users here said that yes, it should come with 9.0

    Yes it will work with UK e-Shop since it's the PAL region, both used in Europe and Australia

    As for the repair I don't know, maybe you need to send it in to Nintendo Australia or something, never ordered a Nintendo console outside of Portugal :(

    Yes, it'll just be like you've traveled to the future and bought a New 3DS from GAME.

    I'd guess some people will see you with a new 3DS and say you came from the future then xD

    365games is a uk based company, so if it breaks just send it back to them in the UK, they come with FW 9.0, i bought some myself.

    hey, I have a friend in UK who can ship the new 3ds to me outside uk.

    I know 365games deny payment for the n3ds with credit cards from other countries, but what about paypal?

    Can they know that I'm not fom UK if I pay with paypal even tho i ship it to an UK address?

    Are you sure that you're using a credit card and not a debit card?

    Since you're from Portugal you might want to use this method: http://forum.zwame.pt/threads/como-comprar-no-ebay-usar-paypal-e-mbnet.346155/ but as you say that you've got a working PayPal account then it shouldn't be needed.

    Hm, I said I know it doesn't work with non UK CC is cause I read a user say so in that zwame forum, dunno if he tried to use a debit card tho :S anyway with mbnet it doesn't matter if it's a debit or credit card.

    But if it says immediately at checkout then I can try, I was thinking it was something they took a couple days or so to check :P

    Now just need to get in touch with my friend and set it up.
