    That's right folks, it's just a full download code inside. Such a bummer for those cart collectors. BUT!!! It DOES come with a 3 month Nintendo Switch membership for one! So that's nice.

    No cartridge? No buy. It's an online game, so there's little chance it'd find its way into my collection, anyways. Online gaming isn't for me. But an empty box is just stupid.

    I'm willing to bet they're doing it as a cost-saving measure, considering the hot water they're in at the moment. (Activision/Blizzard)

    Noticing, aloof from it all
    Sucks, but in a way it makes sure you have internet, that way no stupid consumers would come complaining why they can't play the game, since it's online competitive.

    Do we know the file size yet? I know some people buy physical because a lot of third-party games on Switch take up massive amounts of space. This still sucks for physical purists but it won't be as big of a deal as long as the file size is reasonable.

    You forget the other reason why people may prefer physical is the DRM.

    I doubt that the latter is the reason, chances are this decision was made long ago.

    Yeah, I didn't even think about game sharing. That's a good point and makes this feel a lot more insidious.

    That's true, but it's not very simple. It's certainly gonna happen a lot less than if I had a cartridge I could just hand over to someone.

    Nothing really new or interesting - was done more than a couple of times in the 3DS's history

    If you don't have internet to download it you wouldn't be able to play it either

    I dont mind this one since PS4 is not hackable yet with this game. However, online ? LOL. I will play offline instead.. Dont care about online.

    Uh, good luck getting past the main menu I guess... Since there's no single player missions.

    Is there any price difference between the "physical" version and the digital version?
