the reason im thinking of getting the digital copy....

my brother-in-law pointed this out once. whats a game you feel like no matter what you will want to have on you when you play your 3ds. for him that game was animal crossing.

for me that game is pokemon. sure i can not be lazy and carry the cart with me if i happen to be playing another game, but at the same time, i could just buy it digital.

add to that the lack of any real bonus for getting the game anywhere (gamestop has a two sided poster, but honestly thats gonna end up in a box) so it has me thinking why not digital?

anyone else leaning towards digital for a similar reason? or perhaps you have a far different reason for going digital?

If Nintendo's digital system was like Steam with an account system and download anywhere I'd be all over those digital purchases.

Because it's tied to the console and there is a set 5 console transfers for life Nintendo's eShop can go to hell.

I'm right there with you on getting digital. I just am getting sick of waiting for this game to come out.

one of the biggest things holding me back is this. there are a few things nintendo does differently that bother me and its this. really with all the online stuff they have been doing, and the push for digital, they need to rework there system so that there isnt a set number of transfers, and so that you dont have to transfer, to get that stuff there.

That's more or less my mentality with buying digital games. When deciding if Im going to buy digital I ask myself if Id ever want to trade the game in and if I would want to replay the game. If I answer no and yes respectively I buy digital. In the case of this game Im probably gonna buy one digital one physical
