If we can copy/backup the eShop save files, I will buy the games digitally. If not, I will get them physically.
You can backup eShop games, but the eShop games and save files are all files with names made up of random numbers and letters on the SD card making it impossible to backup an individual title, so you would have to back up the entire SD card as-is.
When moving the contents of my old 2GB card to a 32GB card I had to do just that. I had to be extra careful to ensure the contents were copied across exactly as they were on the 2GB card.
Looking forward to Pokemon X and Y. White FC: 0862-2660-4156 / 3DS FC: 2492-4470-1418 / White 2 FC: 4556-7836-2644
Getting physical because Nintendo sucks at digital content and account stuff.
^This. As of right now our purchases are only tied to the SD card we save the purchase on (or even the system). We don't have actual accounts we log into that track our digital purchases. So if for any reason your sd card is lost or becomes corrupted, your system goes boom, or whatever, you will have to re-buy any digital purchases you had made. Same for the wii.
Dude, you do KNOW that once you buy games on the eShop you can re-download them as much as you want without extra cost right? The only thing you would need is extra memory (SD cards). Proven FACT! On one hand since I'm able to make multiple save files through the eShop and will be a lot easier handling, I am still buying physical copies of the game. That "X" boxart is too great not to own! xD

I already need to rebuy fire emblem awakening at some point just to have a physical copy. I got lazy and bought the digital one but i do not mind buying it again when the price goes down to ensure i have it well passed the my systems life span.
Physical. People often bring up the statement that having a digital copy means that they can play it without changing the card out. This doesn't effect me at all.
I only plan on buying four 3DS games this year. Fire Emblem Awakening - Purchased and played till Animal Crossing came out. Animal Crossing New Leaf - Purchased and will play till Pokemon comes out. I might play a little Black 2 about a month before X and Y to get back into the Pokemon mood. Pokemon X and Y - Will purchase and play till another 3DS game I want comes out...maybe SSB3DS.
NNID - Aerontar. Steam - KingAerontar Currently Awaiting...SSBU, SSB3DS, Pokemon X, Pokemon Y and Watch Dogs.
