    Hi guys! Are you guys getting the physical or digital version of the game? Doesn't look like there's a discussion topic on this here yet.

    I'm going on a family trip to the Dominican Republic right on OR/AS' release so I was highly considering getting the digital version of Omega Ruby to play while there and later buying Alpha Sapphire physically but think I'll just be patient and wait until I get home. I prefer owning Pokémon games physically and OR/AS is no exception.. but it's tempting since I don't want to wait. Digital is just so easily-accessible as there's no need to worry about them running out of stock or the like.

    I'm getting a physical copy. It's a lot better for me to have it physically since I would have to constantly change my SD card (which I would lose) if it was digital.

    I prefer to get digital copies of games, as it takes up less space on the SD card. I also like holding the games on my way home from GameStop haha.

    I'll be getting my copies physically. Digital is not something I feel too comfortable with.

    I'm getting the physical copy, because I already preordered it xD But also because I just like physical copies way better.

    Physical copy. I RARELY get a digital copy of anything, and games are no exception.

    I'm getting the physical copy since I already preordered it. Plus, I feel a lot better using the physical copy since I'm use to using those types. ^^; lol

    Physically, games takes up way too much space on the SD card so I'll be getting physical copies it also seem safer in case something happens to your 3DS.

    Physical copy. There's something very satisfying about ripping the clear film off the top, the 'Clack' as you open the case, and the 'Chck-ck' as you click it into the card slot. Plus, with the digital copy you have to watch the Eshop mascot guy walk around while you download. He's super evil.

    Physical copies are much more reliable and satisfying, so I will be going with that :]

    Physical all the way--there's something satisfying about holding the box in your hands as you grin ear to ear all the way home from the store.

    Physical. I never purposely get the digital version of any game unless it just happens to go that way (for example, I have the 3DS Art Academy game digital because of some promotion from buying Pokémon X)

    I like owning the box the games come in, so I always buy physical copies of my games.

    I'll get the game physically, just like any other game I buy, simply because I prefer it in general. There's not really an explanation for why I don't like digital copies, but I'm just not too fond of them.

    For me I like the physical copy because one I can actually feel it in my hands and it is not just something on my screen, 2 If I were to sell my games(which I will not anytime soon) and 3ds then in order for the person to have the games that they downloaded then they would have to give up their nintendonetwork id(not sure if that is ture). I feel that the physical copy is better.

    I'm getting a physical copy, because I pre-ordered the game already. I also am having issues when it comes to spending money digitally, including trying to hunt down a Nintendo gift card as of late (they keep being unstocked I swear, I don't understand). Besides, I would like the physical copy so that it doesn't take up as much cartridge space, plus its not like I'm going to be removing it from my 3DS after I get it (for a long time at least). Ontop of it, getting the physical copy is less dangerous when it comes to the actual system. If I had to bring the game to another 3DS, its easier to transfer than digital.

    Physically, I always like to have physical proof/reminder of me playing the game.

    Physical copies all the way. I admittedly got a bit carried away with buying digital content on my PS3, and, even though I rarely use my 3DS, I would like to spare as much memory as possible.
