I'm just on the edge of buying Monster Hunter 4, but I want to know what the state of Nintendo's digital distribution platform is going to be moving forward, and/or whether or not NX has a 3DS cartridge slot. I want to get Monster Hunter now, but if it's stuck on the 3DS with either the digital platform or cartridge then I'll wait.
I almost think that Nintendo's online strategy is more important than anything else right now.
With Steam I can log into any computer and play my games, it's device agnostic. Right now Nintendo's platform ties software to hardware, you can't jump from one device to another.
Now I guess if NX is both home and portable, then there's not so much of a need to jump around, but I still want to be able to log in on any Nintendo hardware and have access to my games, whether that be a friends console or future NX upgrades.
