A digital copy of a game?

Or a physical copy of a game?

Physical, I never have and never will lose a gamecard but I can understand that a small card like that can get lost. To lose a digital copy your console would have be broken or stolen.

Depends on the circumstances and the mental constitution/personality of the owner.

Your question is extremely biased for no good reason. I'll rephrase for you.


What's easier lost.
A handheld console
Or a physical copy of a game?


the answer is the game. but deep down you suck if you lose either of these

Both as easily, BUT: it's equally as easy to lose ALL digital games at once compared to ONE physical copy.

Basically, the only way I can see someone losing a game, is by losing their 3DS. Otherwise, the game's simply in your house and will pop up sooner or later. A 3DS can only contain 1 physical game, but always contains ALL digital games.

After all, how do you lose a physical game without the system? By playing frisbee with them or something?

Hypothetically speaking, can parts of an SD card fail? I know there are cheap and knockoff cards, but can't even the good ones become corrupted?

(And yes, I know that as long as you have the original system, you can simply redownload the game onto whatever replacement SD card you want. I'm just wondering about the possibility of SD card failure (small or total) in general.)

A phsyical copy may be lost, but it can be found once again.
A digital copy may be lost, but for whatever reason, it may be unrecoverable.

if a cartridge is broke...tough cookies

My Lord, how would you break a cartridge? In all my years of gaming I've never come close to managing that
