Fire Emblem was my first digital retail game, out of about 20. Now that I have it, I ain't even mad. I sold my retail box when I finally got it; simply didn't need it anymore.

I'm debating EO4 digitally, too, now (preserving my $30 retail swag copy). Already planned to get MonHun and AC off eShop. Games I would never sell and would play forever seem like a good fit for such a thing.

Digital downloads are the way of the future. I get the people who prefer to buy the cartridges because of nintendo's ridiculous business model; I for one am taking the risk of going fully digital before Nintendo gets its act together.
What I don't get are the ones that buy retail "so I can hold it in my hand and read the book"

1 out of 7 are Digital downloads -- but that was only because Fire Emblem was a ditial-only release.

Only Fire Emblem. I wanted to play it the night of release and my local retail stores had a shipment delay due to weather.

The box, manual, etc. are all extras; they're not the main selling point. It's fine if you like retail better because of those things, but to say the digital copy costs more because you don't get an optional box is ridiculous, especially when a box's value is only determined by the consumer and has no retail price. Though people like you want the box (which is perfectly understandable), others simply don't care and only buy a game for the game itself.

But you can't dispute the fact that $40 for a rom is more than $40 for a case, game cartridge containing rom, manual, etc.

(And don't forget about the tax you don't have to pay for a digital copy.)

Aw, how cute. TC doesn't understand tax laws. Fun fact- we don't all live where you do.


Aw, how cute. Noob doesn't understand that 40 is equal to 40. Fun fact: you didn't specify where you're from and this is a predominantly American site.

$40 for less makes it more expensive.

And when the hell did Arizona stop being part of America?

Totally agree.

I have nearly 300 games on Steam, I have over 300 VC and WiiWare, a ton of Live, PSN and more. If I had the pysical product for all my games, I'd be featured on some crappy hoarders show every week.

I do have a lot of digital games, even more than my retail games, just that I have 1 digital retail game.
