Do you buy digital copies of your 3DS games or physical copies? Why?

I'm curious.

Physical, because Nintendo doesn't understand account systems.

Physical. I will always go physical whenever possible. It's how I've collected games for many years.

Atlus games tend to go on sale on eshop pretty often, and on occasion games from other companies, so good prices on those. And not having to switch carts is always nice.

Physical games, you get other, in store sales, that sometimes are pretty amazing (Fire Emblem for $15? Hell yeah.). And it's just nice to have something to show for what you bought.

When I have a choice, this.

And I hope to one day have a respectable collection of games.

Physical, because I like actually owning my games

I want to move to digital, but until I can:

Make purchases directly with my Debit/Credit Card versus buying points
Access the god damn eShop outside of the 3DS
Manage an account online and know I'm not screwed if some catastrophic incident happens to the system
Have comparable sales to XBLM/PSN/Steam

Its hard to go all digital. Atlus seems like the only company that likes to make sales on eShop

Physical because:

1) I like having boxes and manuals, it feels like a collection

2) It's cheaper than buying from the eShop

3) Chances are high that I'll be able to play the games on the next Nintendo handheld

4) If my 3DS breaks, heaven forbid, I'll at least have most of my games physically
