    Would it be worth it to get a M3REAL just cause of Sakura and GBA support or would a Cyclo DS be better

    No a CycloDS would still be better, you will probably be playing more NDS games then GBA ones.

    And you already have a 3 in 1 which you can use with your CycloDS.

    Sakura's just a souped up Moonshell with better accessibility features. Besides, you can run Sakura on other flash carts too, so not worth it unless you're going to use it often for media and such. If not, get the CycloDS, or if you are one of those media junkies, go ahead and buy the Sakura. There's nothing terribly bad about it, really.

    M3 REAL also runs M3 REAL and ITOUCH firmware as well as SAKURA ....and M3 REAL or ITOUCH are the only 2 cards capable of running SAKURA and actually use it to launch games other cards can only use it as a media player! [​IMG]

    Have you used the CycloDS GBA support?

    1. Put the game anywhere on the MicroSD.

    2. Select the game from the CycloDS GUI and wait for a few seconds.

    3. There is no step 3.

    It is incredibly simple.You even get native RAM and Rumble support as well.

    The M3 Real with its expansion pak supports RTS for GBA, but I think RTS for NDS is more useful as you will probably be playing more NDS games then GBA ones.

    If your going to play GBA games more than NDS games go with the M3 Real
    but if your going to play more NDS games than GBA games go with the CycloDS

    It seems like the CycloDS is better and i just looked at their site and i can buy one in The Netherlands for 45 Euro which is like 30 USD but i heard things about homebrew not being compatible is that true?

    Well, overall, CycloDS is a better card for NDS gaming, but if you plan to use media and play GBA games a lot...M3 Real is better choice..
    $30 is nowhere near 45 Euro..
    And homebrew compatibility for CycloDS is great..no problems at all..

    Yes, that price is pretty good for CycloDS, you won't find it for less anywhere, maybe a buck or two...and CycloDS is a great choice, so go for it, you won't be sorry!
