You won't hear it but a lot of us readers will be scratching our heads again wondering "Damn, shouldn't he be unconscious by now after all that".
^Except that already happens, despite them actually showing his physical complications from jutsu spam. Sasuke bleeds from the eyes, falls to a knee, grunts "I'm dyin' over here..." but not in so many words. And instead of people saying "Wow, look how hard he's having it! I guess MS really does cost alot of chakra" they say "Psh, Hatred gives him an infinite chakra reserve now apparently. HAX."
If the downsides of naruto's modes are to be brushed aside as 'theoretical' ones only, then the downsides of sasuke's should be treated as the same with added theatricals(oh-i-bleed). MS didn't cause sasuke go blind, or not being able to see in any of his actual battles. And now with EMS, there is not even any theoretical drawback.

No hypothetical about it. He went straight Mr. Magoo, and almost died to an opponent far beneath him because of it. Consider it "not an actual battle" if you want, but I consider any fight that could result in your death counts as an actual battle. Especially when you're exhausted and outnumbered.
As for the other cost of using the Mangekyou (the massive chakra drain and brutal pain) literally every fight he's used it in that's lasted longer than two chapters resulted in him kneeling in pain and huffing in exhaustion, aswell as Karin or Tobi talking about how low his chakra is. I'd post scans but... it's every fight, so there's no point. There's no middleground here. We know who pays immediate, inescapable prices for their power, and we know who doesn't.
on the subject on EMS only granting immunity to blindness and an extra tech, these new eyes already proved to have upgraded sasukes sussano
^No, it didn't. Sasuke had already received his full form Susanoo when he went blind against Kakashi. We just never saw it amass fully because he hasn't summoned it since then. The EMS didn't give him a "new Susanoo". We just saw him use his regular MS's final form of his Susanoo while he had the EMS active. Proof?
Itachi had his final form of Susanoo without having the EMS. That, and this:http://www.mangareader.net/93-47597-...apter-484.html
See? Regular MS Sasuke could already use the final level of Susanoo without gaining the EMS, just like Itachi could. Notice the black Enton jewel in his hand, the exact same as his complete Susanoo once he shows his EMS.
actually it is a difference. look at the beak on his new sussano, its alot more birdlike than how it first was drawn with the claws n what not, but yea he did still have enton in his hand, but you have to admit their are differences
They looked differently because the first time Sasuke could only partially go into full-Susanoo form, before his eyes gave out and he lost it. When he used it in the cave however, he manifested it all the way through.
i see, fits for me
Itachi had his Mangekyou for years and he suffered the same blindness Sasuke was experiencing and Sasuke had only awakened his Mangekyou for weeks. Basically, Sasuke had gone through many years worth of Mangekyou usage in mere weeks. Either that, or Itachi is so superior that he leasted years using his Mangekyou before going blind whereas Sasuke lasted mere weeks. Make whatever choice pleases you best.
As for Sasuke's blindness, its due to over exertion over a short period of time. Resting the eyes will allow him to recover some if not most of the blindness, though I'm sure each time his eyes gets worse and worse.
