No, infact, I'm being very picky with my digital stuff on Nintendo consoles. If any of them break, I could potentially lose everything, without a refund.

I really want to, but its hard with Wii U's gigabyte problems. I can't put my stuff in an SD card either. Also what if I lose my 3DS somehow? So I'm cautious with the whole digital thing. I can't wait until Nintendo makes downloading alot more comfortable.
Perhaps next generation I won't even need a disc drive or a cartridge slot.

Probably one day a few generations from now. But definitely not this generation.

The loss of purchases isn't relevant. If your Nintendo console breaks, you have a year warranty, or the option to fix it for less than the cost of a new one.

Just wanted to bring this up. A call to Nintendo is all that's needed to fix Nintendo's "DMR" problems. Just tell them the problem you're having, setup a repair, print a shipping label, then wait.
I don't get why anyone would ever buy a new console when they can just repair their current one.
As for lost/stolen merchandise, they're pretty sympathetic. They know what purchases you have.

I have. 100%.

I like having everything right there in the gamepad/3DSXL ready to play.

What if it's not covered under warranty? What then? What if they can't fix it? What if they screw up and forget to transfer your purchases to the new console? (Yes, I've seen this happen)

I got my launch titles for the U in physical form just so I could play them immediately without waiting on a download. I plan to download all future titles for both the U and 3DS. I enjoy the lack of clutter and the convenience of not having to swap discs or go to Gamestop.

No way. I'm never going to only buy digital games, since I like being able to lend them to people, resell them or generally just treat them as physical property. I despise how so many companies want to seemingly replace 'buying' something with merely 'licensing' it.

All digital since Nintendo has offered it with NSMB2. I'd like to download the games I've got on cart but Reggie needs to release a better color 3DS XL before I do.

No, because a paltry 10% isn't enough to warrant not having the disc to bring to friends and a box. But for my 3DS, I'm considering going digital with a couple games. My first was Animal Crossing because you'd want to play it a lot. I'm considering Smash Bros, but we'll see, I suppose.

No I would never consider digital unless it was for Virtual Console, 3DS Download Software or DSiware, I think having a physical copy is an advantage in some ways, I like displaying my games on my shelf, I can let other people borrow my game if I'm that generous and I wont lose the game if my 3DS is stolen or displaced.
I don't think a "digital" shelf is ever really gonna take off, it's pretty silly in concept anyway.

Everything wear and tear is covered. If they can't fix it, they send you a new console. If they forget to put your purchases back: call them back, and let them know. It's better to let them know beforehand that you are aware that you have DLC on there, and expect them back.
They aren't trying to screw anyone over with their digital policy. Usually the problem is poor communication on either end.
This is what the services options are for in the first place.

And you know you can avoid all those "miscommunications" if you dont have everything digital and have the discs.

If your console breaks, even if you don't go digital, you're discs won't have anything to run on anyway.
At least they can save your game save files if you repair the system through Nintendo.
There's really no reason to complain about the DMR for Nintendo systems, besides being loss or stolen. If you lose the cart, that's just as viable.

I buy disc's (retail games) but also buy PSN games as you cannot get them games on disc, & maybe DLC. I've got some eShop games but i am hoping Nintendo change there policies, but as well as my Playstation buy retail games on disc's for the Wii U.

When Nintendo introduces an account system not tied to the system then I will go all digital. Right now I only get digital copies of retail games that I play regularly even while I play other games (games like Animal Crossing: New Leaf).

Guys, I was just wondering, if I ever got a new 3DS (perhaps a 3DS XL in a colour I like, et cetera) and I had a lot of digital retail games on my old 3DS, wouldn't the system transfer take an absurd amount of time? Like hours and hours and hours? Just wondering.

All of my games on my 3DS and WiiU are digital copies, except Nintendo Land of course.
