    I'm stuck between getting an M3DS Simply now or waiting until the G6 Real is released, but i have one question. Does anyone know how much, or roughly how much to expect the G6 Real to cost when it's released, cause if it's expensive, even if it were released today i'd probably still go for the M3 Simply. From what i've seen the only real reason for me to wait is the better download play but i thought if it's coming soon i may as well wait but i dont know anymore now i'm hearing till the end of this month and what's stopping them from delaying it again, but at least this way if i know the price i know whether it's worth the wait or not.

    Well if you keep your M3DS in a good shape, you can sell the bundle with microSD for around the same price that you got it for.
    Just keep the package and stuff, those things sell pretty easily.

    Sorry if I was unclear.
    I meant:
    Buy the M3, and sell it when the G6 comes out.
    Read the reviews about it and decide whether you want the G6 or if you're happy with your M3.

    If you still don't get it, I will try it again.
    Maybe even with a bigger font [​IMG].

    Q~

    What I think he's trying to say is that if you buy a M3DS simply now, you can always sell it for the same price as you got it for. Then you can use that money to get a G6 DS real.

    M3DS/R4 are great flashcards and they are cheap. If you care about download play, wait for the Real series to come out. If you don't care about it, go ahead and buy a M3DS simply or an R4 (You won't regret it).

    LOL no i get it now. But nah i don't see the point in doing that if G6 is coming out apparantly real soon so if it's cheap than i'll probably force myself to wait otherwise i'll just buy an M3 and stick with it. The only reason i'm worried about that is the spring problem thingie, but if it happens i can always return it.

    is the download play available on the M3DS now good though or if i do care about it (which i dont really but it'll be nice to have there)is it worth waiting long for a card that might be too expensive for me to buy when it comes out anyways?

    Some games have download play with the M3 simply, but it's not perfect. In my opinion I think the G6 real will cost around $75(USD) for the 1 GIG and $100(USD) for the 2 GIG. I have a R4 and I love it, but I'm still buying the G6 real( I'm a G6 fan). It all come down to, can you hold off a little longer and are you willing to pay the big bucks.

    whoa i was planning on getting the 2 gig, if you say it's gonna be around $100 US, that's probably around $120-130 Australian, plus $12 shipping (from the place i'm getting it anyways.) Nah thank you, i think i'll go with the M3DS Simply. Good thing i made this topic now i can order right away, hopefully get the M3 next week.

    I would suggest getting the R4 instead, they get the updates faster than the M3DS simply.

    i heard that while it's almost identical though it's got some problems the M3 doesn't have, and that what little download play support there is the M3 does better (and if it's allready bad as it is, i may as well go for the one that does it better.) Or am i wrong?

    No that's wrong, the two cards are exactly the same ( same compatibility, homebrew support, download play, features, and problems).

    Well Aslacker55 the only thing that isn't the same is the FIRMWARE UPDATE Correct?

    It's the same firmware updates, it's just that the R4 gets them a couple days earlier.

    well if that's the case i guess i'll go with the R4. Just one more quick question i only just realised this now, don't know how i forgot but i remember the main reason i wanted to download play support was to trade with my friend in Pokemon Diamond when it comes out, now i'm looking at the Wiki Compatibility list and it says the japanese version works, does that mean the US version will work too or not exactly? This may be the one thing that will make me wait for the Real series (totally forgot about it before sorry, guess if i asked before it'd have saved time.)

    I have all three of them. My favorite one is my R4 with my G6 lite, but I do like the SCDS 1's menu.
