GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - New Super Mario Bros. 2 digital or retail?Click Here to View Story
How the hell did we get into July already? Time seems to be flying faster than ever before. That must mean I'm getting older! Not enough time for fun, too much time on work. Pile on the issues hitting lately and I fear I'm aging at triple normal speed! Perhaps a good night's rest will slow things down. See you in a few, short hours!
As silly as it may sound, I still can't believe we are going to have the option of buying a mainline Mario game in two different forms. While some companies have been providing retail/digital versions of the same game for awhile now, this is a completely new territory for the big N. I can't think of a better sendoff than a brand-new Mario outing!
On August 19th, Nintendo is going to offer Mario fans a new game, New Super Mario Bros. 2. It's also going to mark the start of a major new initiative for Nintendo. You'll be able to get the game in traditional boxed retail form from your local game shop, or you can hit up the eShop from the comfort of your own home to grab a digital copy. Finally, the choice is up to the Nintendo fan!
There's positives and negatives for both sides of the deal, but that's what makes the choice so great. You can weigh these options for yourself and make the decision that best suits what type of gamer you are. If you're tight on space and don't have a game shop local, a digital download may be perfect. If you like displaying your game cases and having physical media, retail is the way for you.
I'm really curious to see what the split is with you guys and gals. Those of you planning to pick up New Super Mario Bros. 2, are you going to go the digital or boxed retail route? Leave us a comment and share your decision, but make sure to tell us why as well!
