C'mon guys... Just imagine how great it'll feel driving to GameStop once you finally get that call. Imagine how great it'll be to leave all of the past week's anxiety behind you, and how great it'll feel walking into that store with your head held high and your shoulders rolled back and saying to the clerk: "I'm here to pick up my pre-ordered copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening."
No digital copy can give you that feeling.
I don't think driving to Gamestop has ever given me a great feeling. Instaed, I prefer ordering online, getting home from a blah kinda day to find a package sitting right outside the door. Of course, Digital is even better. I rarely ever touch anything in a game box aside from the game itself, and all that extra junk ever ends up doing is clog up space in the house.
That, and I have a tendency to misplace games from time to time. Havine a digital copy ensures I won't just misplace it and honestly, going out and getting more plastic or paper that is just going to sit around with no real use has gotten less and less exciting for me. If only Nintendo could find a way to help us backup save files or link purchases to an account as opposed to just the system, I'd consider going all the way digital.
