Eagerly awaiting this before repurchasing choice titles from my library that I still want to play and have on my system always (MK7 & RE:Mercs3D).  I really hope Capcom releases MH3  digitally day and date with retail for 3DS because I refuse to purchase a physical version of a game I'm gonna play for a very long time, but not exclusively.

It would also be nice if it allowed digital saves to be moved to hard copies of a games.
