@PixelatedPixie

Remember, NOT all eshop games are going to have Physical releases, a la Xbox LIVE Arcade.

Hard copies aren't necessarily always going to be an option particularly for the smaller "Arcade" games, retro past console (NES/SNES/64) games and those made by Indie devs.

This is especially going to be the case if Publishers ever decide to go 100% digital for the $40-$60 games sans a physical reelase, which may very well happen during the Wii U's life cycle.

8% eshop store credit on all purchases is quite generous.

Let's ALSO not forget about whatever cashback you can get by default from using your Credit/Debit Card to purchase said content in the eshop or through the purchase of the physical Wii U Points cards or digital codes. In addition to purchasing said Wii U Points cards on sale or via any other types of promotion.

When all is said and done you could be saving a whole lot more than 8% depending on the cashback rewards offered by your payment type and/or through the purchase of discounted physical points cards.

Duh.
