I would go to retro gaming. Not wholeheatedly against digital, but gaming would be dead in my eyes if gamers no longer had copies of games to last for the ages, and not as long as servers stay up.

I prefer digital, so yup.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

This. Plus I not only play video games, but collect them. No point in having a digital collection.

I never felt much of a need to show off my collection of games to other people so a digital collection is fine by me.

Yes, but not nearly as much, and mostly retro games. :3

I would play older games from previous generations and would buy much less of newer games. I prefer physical copies. I just feel like I'm getting less for the same price if I were to take the digital option.

@EveryoneThatDislikesDigital it's because digital downloads don't have the magic of a new game: you download ,you play, it's over. nothing in betwen no unboxing, no anxious wait to play it(unless your internet sucks) you don't "feel it" until you start playing..... that's why physical games are the best(and look great to expose in a shelf!)

Yes, but the longer boxes and physical media are around the better. I would probably buy less games if they become completely digital though.

Ok I am sure you all are going to know what the next question is but I have to ask it anyway.

Question #478: What is your opinion on the price drop of the Wii U?

My answer: I can't help but feel that this might be the end of the Nintendo really. The lifespan of the Wii U eerie reminds me of the Dreamcast. Barely any 3rd party support game wise, slow sales at the start and now less than a year a price drop. Now dont get me wrong I am as big of fanboy of Nintendo that you can get but as the saying goes everything good must come to an end. While I think it might help Nintendo to sell some systems I don't think it will be enough. And honestly this is their second system in a row that they did a price drop on not even a year after the release. I mean does Nintendo now expect people to buy a Nintendo system on launch day now? I know I wont, which is sad to say. Which means if they do come out with a new system be it a handheld or a home one there will be even lower sales on launch day. I think this is a total mistake.

I think it's definitely going to help, but not very much. It's still an expensive system for what it does compared to the PS4. Something like a wise NL user once said.

It's a great last resort. I'm planning on getting one for X & the next Zelda. Worst case scenario, Nintendo replaces the Wii U early, & if that system fails, then it would definitely be the end of them in the home console business.

The Wii U's price drop is good for the console in the short term, but bad for Nintendo in the long run. With both the 3DS and Wii U going through price drops during their first years, they are really discouraging people from jumping on board with their hardware outside of what hardcore fans they may have, which apparently isn't a lot. I am disappointed that I couldn't get my Wii U for the cheaper $299.99, as I often struggle to justify the $349.99 I spent release day. It just hasn't been too great following up the Wii in the same year the Wii blew my mind with Xenoblade.

Well now i may get the Wii U

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.
