    Gateway SHOULD work on it if it's still at 9.2. Anything above that and you may be waiting awhile to see if they'll update it.

    As far as I know only 3 different serial numbers have shipped new with 9.3+ on them. They are all red in the US

    Most definitely below 9.2 if its brand new.
    Gateway will work fine and you can even downgrade to 4.5

    I don't think you can downgrade the NewN3DS's, not possible I would imagine. I will just have to take my adapter with me and ask the shop assistant nicely if I can check before I buy one cause I would be screwing if I bought it home and it was on 9.5 cause I doubt very much they would give you a refund if you took it back and said its no good because it wont work with a gateway card, I think they would look at me like WTF???.

    He's asking for ice white 3ds. Not N3DS.
    Or is he o.O

    OP isnt very clear.

    edit:
    as far as I know, only the original one is called "ice white"
