    I have bought 2 consoles with Neon Joycons from BestBuy (US) last week. S/N begins with XAW70008 and XAW40005. Any idea which one may be newer? I cannot find useful S/N that can be used to run a comparison with XAW40005, either in the serial number thread or the sheet.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I have checked that thread. Looks like nothing regarding XAW40005. For XAW70008, I guess it might be 3.0.0 or 3.0.1 according to that thread. But I have no idea about 40005.

    Since XAW400028 is 3.0.1, i'm guessing XAW40005 will be 3.0.1 or higher.

    XAW400033 was reported with 3.0.0, but XAW400028 was 3.0.1. This is probably a time when they were upgrading
    the assembly line from 3.0.0 to 3.0.1 so both firmwares were produced in parallel. XAW40005 is very likely 3.0.1.

    Hi, thank you so much for the reply. Does it mean XAW40005 is most likely to be newer than XAW70008?

    I'd say they are around the same, but yes, 40005 is probably slightly newer.

    Yes. Like-whoring is quite unbecoming.





    Like if you agree

    Hmmm... But a joke explained...

    Let me refresh your memory, Margen was a "like spammer", a big one at that, he annoyed people giving likes to everybody just because. In any case for the joke to work, azoreseuropa would be "missing Margen".
