With retail games in the eShop these days, it seems people rather buy the games as the downloadable versions. For a person who likes having everything in one place (in this case, the 3DS itself), I have a 1:25 ratio (1 cart per 25 downloaded). The only two carts I have for the 3DS are Theatrhythm and Rhythm Thief. Everything else is of various types. Recently been expanding the VC game collection as well. Since owning the XL back in late-August, I only downloaded two DSiWare titles (Touch Solitare, from when it was the Club Nintendo purchase; and Puzzler World XL, since I have the 2nd game on the now defunct AK2i), yet everything else was via DSi System Transfer, in which 50 DSiWare existed. Having everything in one place... that's what the AK2i was for. Now, it's just eShop-related. Besides, I loathe GameStop.
