    Cool name. So what do you guys think of this quiet data exchange feature? Ominous or awesome?

    Ehh, it really depends on how they use it. If it's something like automatic friend code transfers, it could be very useful (and awesome).


    I don't know how they'll use it exactly yet, so...only time can tell.

    I posted this in the new online topic thing. I think the online will also be called something like crosspass. I mean how cool is that name CrossPass or even it could be XPass something straight out of Megaman. I think the online should be called CrossPass Network and the Tag Mode CrossPass Mode since they're both registered.

    your name reminds me of Clay Aiken.

    anywho, on topic, I wonder what kind of security the cross pass or whatever standby linking stuff will include... automated on the fly ad hoc connections could be somewhat risky if not handled correctly...

    That's a very good point. I've thought of many uses for various homebrews. But turning the 3DS into a virus emitters was something I had not considered at all.

    was there not a homebrew that changed depending on if there was any wifi close by or other hotspots?

    EDIT: Homebrew Game

    Let's hope that friend codes will not be used any longer, and that it exchanges a username or something.

    Why does everyone hate friend codes? *I've never had a DS"

    On topic: I hope that it allows you to find people that are further away.

    because they are completely inane... why type in 1125-6131-8262 when you can type in jimwhat and be done with it?

    I don't like CrossPass for the online feature name, unless you can get your wiiware and dsiware games on a 3ds using it.
    The 3D trademarks are probably a part of 3DSPlay.
