    does any one know what firmware comes installed on the UK x and y 3ds? I thinking of buying one and I guess it will be on a firmware that wont run gateway, which is fine but If it had the option to do so it would be a bonus :P

    Thanks guys

    Real answer: We don't know as we don't have our hands on a ROM or retail cartridge to verify.

    W/e firmware partition is gonna have, its still gonna be pirate protected with a AP Patch.
    + Some say its gonna be a NAND based cartridge which means a no for piracy.
    So for now its a no, if Gateway finds a way to play MH4 and ACNL then Pokemon is gonna be possible to crack.

    This is completely unsubstantiated.

    The game isn't even out. And then we need mayby to wait for rom.
    Or if someone will get the game and got a console with 6.x and 4.5.

    My bet is also 6.1.

    The game is not out to the public, but a lot of contract breaker sellers are already playing it and I think one of them confirmed it contains the 6.1 firmware as Snailface is saying.

    Guys, it sounds like he's asking about the console not the games.
    The console comes with 6.1.0.
    The games will probably come with a newer firmware.

    Probably one of the latest firmwares.
    You can be certain of it not being able to run the Gateway.

    Wherever you want me, baby.

    I can't see how we can be 'certain' about such a thing, but if it helps you sleep at night, being pessimistic, then, alright! ;)

    I think it'll work. It definitely will eventually.

    We really can't be certain one way or another; these arguments are completely baseless. Unless someone has one of those consoles in hand, we're all just speculating here.

    Its not baseless, people who have bought the console on gbatemp said it shipped as 6.1. As for the game, its also most likely 6.1 because why would the console the game is a special release for not come ready to play out the box. Also, JAP pokemon xy consoles havent been released yet because they come in X and Y bundles only so it's 99% certain the game is also 6.1

    Let's be honest, if the X/Y 3DS XL (U) was released with 6.1, why would this one have a lower firmware? The only way it could work with Gateway 3DS is that the Gateway team release an update to make it work on newer firmwares.

    K, wasn't aware someone had had the console in hand and confirmed the firmware version. Thanks for clarifying. :)

    Either you're not understanding, or I'm not. Gateway has a way to spoof firmware. We don't know if Nintendo had blocked it with this game, somehow, and we don't know how if there's an "end firmware" for the spoofing.

    I'm referring to the game, by the way; not the Pokeman console.

    Limited edition 3DS that is going to be launched or is launched a week or 2 before the launch of Pokemon X & Y
    Whilst 4.5 came out in..... 2012?
    Yeh, I'm certain of that 3DS not having 4.5

    The Gateway might eventually support firmwares higher then 4.5 but for now, no.

    I didn't know Nintendo had a way to block specific features like firmware spoofing. I thought they could only block whole flashcarts, which would in turn block all its features.
