I'm unsure because I already reserved my copy at my local Gamestop store.

Most likely download. I like not having to switch game cards to play a different game. However, I will need a bigger SD because Fire Emblem: Awakening took up an incredible amount of space.

Retail. I'd rather save my SD space for other things.

FE:A is taking up a huge portion of my SD, so I'm constantly installing and uninstalling demos =P Still, I prefer to have a solid copy, so I'll be going for retail. Hopefully they'll reveal the version differences soon so me and my friends can decide which ones we want.

It's usually a good idea to have an SD card with at least the advertised maximum supported capacity of 32GB, people have had success with higher capacity cards but there is no guarantee.

Anyway, I will most likely get retail copies. Might even pre-order if there is a good bonus.

I imagine if one were to frequently dload games, both new and the virtual console related games (the older ones, you get what I mean), they would rapidly run out of space.

Where possible, I would always choose the physical copy. I will only dload from the eShop the games that I really want and there is no physical copy. Well, I would most certainly dload Oracle of Ages / Seasons and Link's Awakening despite having the old games but would like to experience them on the 3DS. Anyway, a few li'l games like that is fine for dloading.

As for the upcoming Pokemon X Y games, definitely getting the physical copies. *nods*

Retail. The only reason I could see getting a digital copy is if I want to have more than one save file, but we're not really even sure if that will work. Plus, I buy both versions, with one of the reasons being that I can have two "save files," anyway.

I would rather have a physical copy of the game personally. Maybe I'm just old school like that.
