    I know all black Wii's will have 4.3. I'm supposing the same for all newly shipped white Wii systems.

    because of all the inventory in store warehouses, most will likely 4.1 or 4.2 for awhile yet....

    Depends where you go too. If you go somewhere busy like a gamestop, you have a higher chance of getting a 4.3. I went to Target, but I assume some more low key stores like walmart, kmart, or something else would certainly have 4.2.

    every Wii I've seen in the past few months either came with 4.1 or 4.2, with a 75% chance of a D3-2 Drive

    most stores will be trying to unload the 5million black sports resort bundles they have in stock so most likely 4.2, and the guy that said new wiis have 4.3 is full of shit
