Meh, why wait when you can get it instantly without any trouble with shipping and damaged materials?

Plus, if I was a developer, I would go all download to save money and time on boxes

There's something just right about a boxed copy, hence why I'll be getting two :)

Download, because assuming the publish through Ambrosia, there is not going to be a boxed copy for Mac.

I just always feel some irrational urge to own that fresh boxed copy.

Yep, I like having boxed copies of games. Can come in useful if you find yourself without an internet connection and want to install the game (it happens)

There's nothing quite like holding the box in your hands.

Anyway, It's hard to bow down to digital information, it's easy to bow down to a box.
