IF in the future Nintendo decided to put all (or most) of their 1st party retail games on the eShop on sale at 30%-50% off "for a limited time only" would you double dip to get them digitally for convience sake?.

I think i would for a few games like ACNL, NSMB2, Crosswords Plus, Professor Layton and FE:A where alot of paid and free DLC (which is obviously stored on the SD card) is constaintly being thrown at you. i suppose rebuying games "like these" for $19.99-$27.99 wouldn't be a bad idea considering all the DLC involved, lol.

No poll involved just thoughts! :).

Double dipping for convenience is silly if we're talking the same system. If I own a physical copy, why would I want a digital one, too? The only case this is really ever appropriate would be if the physical copy installs to the system functioning as a digital copy since the disc is no longer needed after the first time (PS3 game I'm playing now did this).
Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

I'm not really a fan of double dipping to be honest. It would have to be quite a significant sale to get me to double dip.
I am insane. Somethings I say may not make sense. Please take heed. We Have come over the way that with tears... 3DS FC:5327-0905-8783

Nope. If I miss out on a sale, I miss out on a sale.

I wouldn't double dip. I would possibly grab what I haven't picked up yet, but that's highly unlikely given the lack of an account system on eShop.

If the sale was for Pokémon X/Y (a game that I would never sell and want to play all the time), I would consider going digital only on that particular game.
I always rush here to tell GameFAQs my problems!
