I like boxed versions so I can have the cases displayed on my shelf. However, I am not surprised that Animal Crossing is selling well digitally. If there was any game I seriously considered getting the digital version of it was Animal Crossing.

Yeah I'm considering getting an XL with animal crossing installed. Its the perfect digital title, because you'll play it daily for 20 minutes or so. 

the game is cool thats why i think it has high sales figure and addictive too.

OMG I just bought this game. My first "full" 3DS cart game download on the eShop.

Never owned an Animal Crossing game before and didn't like what little I played of the DS game but I think I can really get into this version. The 3D and extra power that comes from being Mayor sounds like the game is worth the investment more now to me. =)

This is one of the biggest gambles I've put my money to in a long time so I hope it pays off!
