Benefit of buying eshop games vs actual games?

I am wondering this?
Easier to change games?
However, can't trade games.

No extra baggage to carry around.
If it like first party, game will be released at midnight. otherwise noon est.

That all I can think of.

I'm buying the eshop version of Bravely Default so I won't have to have that creepy cover in my collection (wish NA had gotten the EU cover).

-No physical copy (Less physical bits to keep track of, easier to swap games)
-Better chance of releases, no worry about limited stock (Senran Kagura, Phoenix Wright)
-No physical copy (Can't sell / trade / borrow / lend)
-Less purchase options (no used games, limited to Nintendo sales / promotional codes)

Hmm. The ability to not trade games will probably keep me away from this sometimes.

Sales are more often and games are thus easier to obtain

the games on eShop aren't "actual" games?

news to me.

but, i'm being obtuse.

i buy digital games because i want them to available to me on my 3DS any time i want them.

i'll buy physical games if there's a bonus involved (ie: SMT IV and Bravely Default). but, generally speaking, i'm a "digital man" myself from here on out.
