Box, because holding a box or a cd in your hands just feels...well....you have the game. If that makes any sense. Plus I need it to complete my collection of all things IV.

For things like Half-Life 2 Episode One or SiN: Episodes I don't care for a box, but just like Darwinia, I want one for DefCon.

Maybe a box because this has the potential for extremely cool cover art.

Of course a nice box to put in my room. BUT, at the same time, a download, the day I decide to buy, so I don't have to wait a week for my box comming to home !

Download, because I have a Mac. On the other hand, I may have to go back and buy physical copies of all of the games, in anticipation of getting a new IntelMac with BootCamp, which will happen someday...

Hopefully they'll do the same as they now do for Uplink; you buy a boxed copy, then you are also allowed a direct download. For Linux, at least.
Here is my signature. Make of it what you will.

Pretty simple answer for me, because where I live (Brazil):


. Download is available immediately
. Box is available between 2 months and never, usually the latter

Introversion have managed to ship boxed copies to remote places like Australia and Canada in a week. There's no reason why Brazil would be a challenge :)
