      1. Yep, seems you and @Shaan Joshi (below) are right. Thanks!

        By the way, I’m among those who prefer physical copies. I’ll go for it, then.

        1. Thinks for pointing that out I DERP TOtolyyy derp derp didn;T DERP KNOW thAT DERP -_- What i mean is how much is one block!

          1. 1 block is 128 kilobytes. BTW this is not Nintendo specific. A block of memory has always been 128k. So that would mean Luigi’s Mansion is about 864MB and Monster Hunter is about 1827MB

      1. for a 3DS game that isn’t bad at all…. how big is mario 3d land? I was able to download it in a couple of minutes and my internet isnt very fast.

      2. Monster hunter is a MASSIVE game with MASSIVE content. Its not surprising its going to be twice as large as Luigi.

  1. Heheh. You know that it’s gonna be a good one when it requires that much file size.
    Or at least a lengthy, dedicated time waster.

    1. From what I’ve seen it looks to have plenty of content. The quality of the game also looks pretty high. I think it will be a good game overall. Now if only I can get you and DryBones into Monster Hunter……

  2. Both games together is probably too much for me. I alredy downloaded Fire Emblem: Awakening. I could maybe fit Luigi’s Mansion, not sure about MH3.

  3. why downloading when you get a game, a case and a booklet for the same price? seriously? with the wii u digital delexe promotation theres an advantage in buying download but not for the 3ds

    1. You’d be stupid to download games on the 3DS if u ever break your 3DS or wanna upgrade your games are lost with their saves they’re not transferable , also say u beat a game or your bored of it and u wanna sell it u can’t because u retards bought the digital copy lol slaps don’t buy downloaded games from Nintendo YET! Till they let u recover downloads and also allow your net work ID to be transferred.

      1. This guy has it right :)
        I like to resell my games when I’m done with them. $ 40.00 for a digital file just doesn’t feel right, especially with Nintendo’s retarded policy. I need to know that I really own my digital copy the way I own my physical copy. Nuff said.

    1. As Shaan Joshi said earlier, Luigi’s Mansion is about 0.82GB and MH3 is about 1.74GB.

      By the way, there is something called a “capital letter”. You use it for the first letter of a sentence or when a naming a person/place/thing.

  4. I prefer physical copies personally.
    But on the other hand I have a 32GB SD card with over 200,000 blocks left.

  5. The only time I ever chose a digital copy over a physical one is Fire Emblem Awakening. Because of shipping errors, wanting to play it right away, etc. I don’t really mind, it’s on my 3DS at all times, I’ve been playing it just about every day since it released. But if I get Luigi’s Mansion, it’ll be physical. That boxart looks friggen’ rad too.

  6. I might get MH3U digital only because I don’t have stores that sell videogames nearby. I prefer a physical copy as well as the anyone else but for people with similar cases as mine digital is a life saver. Plus I like the the fact that I’ll never have to insert or remove the game on my 3DS. I’m a huge Monster Hunter fan, a case or booklet is not really important for me when it comes to Monster Hunter. What matters to me is keeping my 3DS charged and having some fellow gamers to hunt together with ^_^
