Sasuke better have MS because this storyline makes no sense otherwise. Itachi should of just smoked Sasuke in the first part of the manga if all he needed was regular sharingan. A counterargument that I've heard is that Sasuke's sharingan was too weak back at that point. My counterpoint is that Kakashi was able to upgrade Obito's sharingan to three dots and then later to MS even though it wasn't his biological eye. This proves that one can strengthen a sharingan even if it was originally somebody elses.
I've also heard the argument that Itachi is now desperate and has no time left to wait so he's going after Sasuke's regular eyes, but that still makes no sense. He's been waiting for Sasuke to get MS this whole time because apparently you get the eternal MS or whatever like Itachi explained, but Sasuke doesn't have MS. In Itachi's big speech, he makes it pretty clear that he needs two sets of MS and the 2nd MS needs to be his brother's eyes and not anyone elses (This rules out Kakashi, who already has MS). But if he takes Sasuke's eyes as they are now (No MS), Itachi would just get a crappy diet-pepsi half regular/half MS version of eternal MS at the best (assuming we're following logic. I know it's a manga about ninjas so I can't really bank on that).
At worst, all Itachi is going after for right now is a set of replacement eyes and nothing else. If this is the case, he should of just gouged out some sharingans from the countless Uchihas that he wasted. If he has this "genius" master-plan, why didn't he think that one out?
Also, someone else mentioned this. If Sasuke really did have MS, how would Itachi ever win the fight? Sasuke is going toe-to-toe with him using just regular sharingan despite the fact that Itachi has 3 ridiculously powerful super jutsus. When I imagine this fight on a level playing field, I see Sasuke mopping the floor with Itachi. His whole plan just seems retarded to me.
None of this makes any sense unless Sasuke actually does have MS. Maybe he did the same thing that Kakashi did?

All akatsuki members, by default should have been some real bad asses. It's just as a matter of time for them to reveal themself.
Seriously... all they have to do is get new eyes so why don't they just swap em? Then they will both have sexy eyes forever w/o going blind. Some dumb ninjas we have.

^yup, too many people with the same level makes things ugly pretty quickly, especially for the aggressive ones.
