Downloading a game you could buy physically is illogical

Mini Rant

I'm on my smartphone after reformatting it and check my purchase history, I'm not able to re-download any THQ games I bought, the money has gone to waste.

Further to this point; 3DS downloads don't have an account system, and even if they did; games you may need to re-download are at the mercy of the publisher. I buy all games physically when I am able and so should you if the option is there.

What's your excuse? Convenience or a high break in rate in your area?

unless you are like previous TC that lives in china. paying import fees and waiting is a major pain in the buttocks.

Is this truly true? :(

You mean besides saving gas money, no taxes, getting the game instantly, and not having to switch out cartridges? Yeah, it's useless, really.

I have to pay taxes on the eShop and all the games, especially 1st party are full MSRP with no price drops or sales. I guess i can agree with you on the rest though...

I don't get the point either. I mean yeah, portability & not having to switch out cartridges. But I'd like to have the option of selling a game if I no longer wanted it.

Some people do not sell games. Some people do not share games, nor do they have any one to share games with.
