I won't make a decision until they actually publicly announce an official release date for the U.S. I already have my 3DS.... but until I know when they are releasing this sexy thing I can't really pick one or the other. If they were going to be releasing it for sure at or around Easter time, then I would most likely get the cart and have it shipped to my house. But if they were to release it in July or August then I would download it. *sigh* --- 'Ma-gi-karp!' ..... *I look to my friend* "I think it just asked us to eat it... what do you think?"

I'm going to download it, then get a retail cartridge, then buy someone else's 3DS with Animal Crossing on it. --- Stay alert! The guards spotted secret agent Metal Gear! Snake: Come on, really? - Dorkly

FOr me, I will always choose physical copy. I don't trust fitting all my games on my 3ds, it doesn't feel right and if my 3ds ends up stolen or lost, well, then I just lost a lot of money in games on it.
On another point, it's not just about the physical copy, but the case itself. The case is like a symbol of history, after a few days when you get the game you store it on your shelf and when you come back X years later it's like a memory held in place with all your other games. I remember when I randomly pull out one of my ds games from the past, it's a wave of nostalgia.

I prefer physical copy...but since I will be playing this alot, as well other games in between, digital makes more sense. The copy would be on my system, freeing the cart slot for other games I want to play in the meantime leaving it in the system, while AC would already be on the system to enjoy without having to swap carts. --- PSN - TheRealSneakers / 3DS FC - 3952-7010-7346 http://therealsneakers.deviantart.com/art/Troll-Face-comic-289558611

I wish you could take the cart, put it in then download it on to the 3DS. So that then you could give the cart to your friend and still play it. (Of course Nintendo would lose monies from it, because as you all know, DEY LEIK MONY.) --- A Cthulhu Villager in Animal Crossing 3D would be awesome! People who agree: 0 | PM your opinion!

I think I'm gonna go digital. For me, there's no tax on the eShop, so I save money from that, as well as driving to a store to pick it up. UNLESS a store has some awesome preorder bonus... then... physical ;) --- GT: Super JooSen

IMO: You're a fool to buy anything digital for the same price as a retail copy (with the exception of always-online games). At least the Vita offers a discount.
You're getting less for your money, while Nintendo saves. Pass.

why can't a physical copy also give you a digital copy? --- http://i49.tinypic.com/5l6hsj.jpg http://i49.tinypic.com/11989xv.jpg Starcraft 2 Username = Gears
