For starters, I see no perks what so ever buying digitally. With retail you get a cool box-art, manual (physical), and the game itself. With digital, you don't get a price cut, if you lose your 3DS say goodbye to everything, and you can't smell the awesome scent of a new game smell in the box, but you don't have to pay taxes, which is around $3-$10 depending on where you live at. Big whoop.
Granted, once they make user accounts available, it won't be as bad. Nor if they add 3DS games to the 'game of the weekend', or something like that. And the whole 'it's more convenient thing' is not up my ally considering the fact that I carry around a tote bag that holds 20 3DS/DS games, plus a charger, headphones, etc.
In the end, I'm going for retail for 3DS games.

Once a new game comes out it's 'man, I want to continue to play Animal Crossing, but OMG ZELDA!' and then once you spend a week or two to beat Zelda, you throw back in AC and you're not interested in it anymore.
The thinking is if you can play Animal Crossing more lazily, you'll play it for a longer period of time.

But on 3DS, and presumably Wii U, there are ways to get around that. You can lie about where you live in the eShop.
