    Dylan from the DealExtreme staff has just confirmed that this 'probably' isn't English. Sorry [​IMG]

    (Please use this link as I get points for telling you about it)


    Just to clarify, this is the 'M3 Real Box'. It can't play GBA games. There is more info on the M3 Real in this news article.
    The Chinese version without any expansion packs is available here.

    The Case it comes in is pretty cool. How it holds a M3 and a MicroSD. I already saw this earlier, but some people probably haven't [​IMG]

    Isn't the M3 Real meant to play GBA games as well? I bet there's some sneaky RAM in the rumble pak to allow this.

    This is the last bundle on the GBAtemp new article
    It can't play GBA games. I'll add the other bundles when they are added.

    With the current state of the firmware (should be the same as the G6R), I would not recommend the M3R, but the price difference between the M3R (even with a micro SD) and the G6R is massive so it may be worth considering for the future

    Does M3R have internal memory like G6R (1 or 2 GB) ? I can't seem to find that information anywhere!

    No it doesn't. It uses MicroSD cards.

    ok thank you [​IMG]

    Edit: by the way is internal memory a good thing or not? If so then would G6R 2GB be a better purchase (apart from the price) ?

    Internal memory tends to be more expensive and you can't add more storage. But you won't have to worry about having a fast MicroSD card for games like Castlevania and Tony Hawks (they're the main ones that need a fast card)

    I think I'll go for the storage.
    One question, in your opinion M3R or Cyclo? I want SDHC and clean roms and all those neat features but I don't know what to buy :\ I've seen great reviews on Cyclo and this new M3R seems great too but I don't wanna buy a Cyclo knowing that m3R is better or vice-versa

    I recommend the CycloDS Evolution because tit has everything the M3 Real has, but the support team is easily reachable and really friendly.

    But so is the M3 Team, right?

    I would also recommend the CycloDS Evolution though. It gets regular updates and everything works as it should. It has quite a big userbase, and the M3 Real hasn't atm.
