Sorry if this is a played out or an annoying topic but I promise I did a lot of homework. The price difference between the two does not bother me. However based on all the reviews I read, it seems that the CycloDS Evo has some slight slowdown problems with certain cards, which is fine, but I do not see that mentioned in the M3 Simply/R4 review. However, download and play is slightly important to me, but more so is plenty of updates. I also heard somewhere that the R4/M3 Simply do not do sleep mode properly and the battery runs out in 4 or 5 hours even in sleep mode, as opposed to 20+ hours with a real cartridge. Is this true? I would really appreciate someone's opinion. I tried a friend's M3 Simply and it was great. Some minor slow downs in Animal Crossing (even with a Kingston Japanese microSD card) but that was all I noticed. Thanks in advance!
