i like the extra case and i actually need a replacement case for a broken case i got with a used game i bought.
people just like to get something they can actually "grab" for that kind of money and a case is better than just a little card ^^

dunno about specialized gamestores, we don't have that many of them in germany and certainly not in my rather "rural" area (even if there were, i wouldn't buy there, because game prices in germany suck anyway (like up to $100, and the price won't drop for a few years, even if you can get the game imported for like $15)). they could live with just the cards at the counter, as they are specialized anyway.
but as there are more general stores, the case is definately the way to go (at least in germany).
