    So I have been using my M3 Simply for a while now with really no complaints, but I have an iTouchDS in hand right now. Is it worth it to switch over to the iTouchDS for anything other than the new interface?

    IMO, I think the iTouchDS' menus can be pointless, but if the firmware is improved, it might offer advancements that they M3 Simply can never offer. Anyone wanna give me their opinion and enlighten me on any advantages the iTouchDS may have?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Hmmm, besides this, I can't see it as a big deal to change over. I'm starting to lean back home to my M3 Simply. Anyone else? [​IMG]

    I'd rather take the M3 simply. If you don't need SDHC, and don't have any problems with the M3 simply, then there's no point of changing it.

    Well, I don't know why you MUST choose between those two carts, why not keep both..

    But, if you must choose one..if the capacity is no matter for you, and you are completely satisfied with the 2 GB limit microSD, than stick with the Simply (you've been very happy, and satisfied with it so don't switch)..
    on the other hand, iTouchDS is more likely to stay on the scene longer, because it is newer (which means if they drop support on some cart, it would be Simply, because it's older) and in the future, if they start making games that are 256 MB in size, you might want to have more space and SDHC support would come in hand......

    Try iTouchDS yourself, and if you like it....go with it!!

    You obviously like your M3 Simply a lot better, so you might as well stay with that.

    M3 Simply wont be able to run Sakura!! Sakura is for M3 Real only!!!!!! It is a new firmware that should replace the current one that's been known for slowness and lag in menus..
    M3 Simply is generation of flashcarts before Real, and doesn't have SDHC support..

    in my opinion the iTouchDS is better so if you have to give one give the m3
