    Probably no point posting this since it's not very helpful for people serial hunting, but I guess I got super lucky:

    Serial: XAW700012
    Serial on device matches serial on box: Yes
    Region: Australia
    Firmware: 1.0.0
    Color option: Grey
    Store: Ebay seller
    Was a bundle (if yes, which): No
    Purchase date: 3rd May, 2018 (no idea about original purchase date, though)

    Seller listed it as brand new, which I was skeptical about, but the console is in pristine condition. Either it was barely used, or an unwanted gift, but if it's second hand they even put the twist ties back on with the plastic. Wonder why they waited so long to sell it..?

    I went through some local stores searching for a 3.0.0, checking serials in many boxes and even powering on the device to check if it wasn't updated, but no good. By the local stores there were units ranging from 3.0.1 to 4.1.0.

    Is this trick fully reliable or isn't it always right?

    I've been back from my vacation for a week, just now getting around to compiling all this new data into the infographic.

    Looks like Japan is doing a re-run of the Odyssey bundles: Mario Red consoles will no longer be exclusively 3.0.0-3.0.1

    There is one point of data but I dismissed it as an error:
    XAK100000 (Neon Blue-Red) was reported to be on 4.0.1 by mulmatjoa
