    I just get the 10 coins a day. Eventually, I won't have any use for the coins once I have completed everything, so no rush. Until Nintendo release some update that requires 100 coins for something or ridiculous amounts like that, yeah, I might think about it [​IMG]

    It isn't very accurate, mind. So what is the definition of cheating? [​IMG]

    I just turned my 3DS on and popped it into my dryer and turned that on. xD JK

    I shake it just to get the 10 coins a day and if I do happen to go out I bring it with just to get some real steps to it haha.

    Spend them on, Hmm

    You all know the upcoming E-store?
    How freakin awesome would it be if you can buy e-store games with play coins, but for a LOT of play coins, not just like 20. and yeah.
    Would be really cool actually.
    And just to make sure you wont cheat like a ass all the time, 24 hour cooldown if you buy something with play coins or something. ehh i dont know, but it would be cool
    Edit: to be honest, i actually did cheat with the pedometer, hey, i being honest. but i do go legit sometimes, like when i go outside on my trampoline or biking.

    Good idea in theory but, seeing as you can only have a max of 300 play coins at any one time, highly unlikely. I'm sure Nintendo also realizes how easy the coins are to cheat, so there's no way they'd set themselves up for such a huge monetary loss.

    But then again, it could be a way to combat piracy though. If they ever want to beat it, they have to be smart and still gain a profit.

    Good premature idea, could go places, maybe something like, if you have 15,000 coins and pay $2, you get a game or something.

    I think they might have some ideas.

    I change date and get lots of coins very often, just not fond of waiting 1 day to get 10 coins only to find out all puzzle piece's were the same and then wait again :/
    same with Street quest, 5 characters each map just isnt enough, even beat the last boss yet? i did, and heck it took roughly 70 hero's no joke! thats about 140 coins which counts up to 14 days (2 weeks, sheesh)
    i just want stuff early you know....finish it off quickly sometimes take my time and other's just crazy to get that damn last puzzle piece in the very freekin corner!

    For games it's highly unlikely, true, specially because why give it for free when you can charge? xD
    But maybe additional content like characters, clothing, poses, etc, not for the games because they already use coins for this, like SSFIV, but for the Mii Plaza and all, or additional content for the camera or things like that.. maybe for those things that people might not use real cash to buy (at least not all of us) they will accept coins.. dunno, just speculating.

    It's like that all the time with Nintendo, isn't it? We're all speculating, always in the dark and all.. about E-shop, about May 3DS update, about Café.. =p
    I hope this late May update is REALLY good... specially because there's still a month to go.


    Edit: About the topic.. I'm cheating on pedometer right now (4 days after getting the 3DS), because I want to get a hat in Find Mii and show it off to my (sole) friend I have on the Friend List.. heh (apparently he doesn't have the time to get those, so I'll get first, even with a week of difference =p)
    I need the coins because here in Brazil I'm having a hard time getting a StreetPass.. well, it only has been 4 days, but anyway..

    .. but I don't intend to cheat after that, one hat and it's over.. I want to take my time to get all those things =p

    oh... I just discovered that those hats are only for StreetPass, they won't appear on the Friends List.

    Gambia, The
    Date changing is not cheating, it's making most out of what you're given. With the way the puzzle keeps giving you the same 2-3 pieces over and over again that's one big reason to do it already.
    I change date whenever I feel like shaking my 3DS while watching TV, which results in maybe 20-30 additional coins every few days. Even if they're pretty useless right now I still like having some coins available in case something new makes good use of them so I don't have to get those coins all at once.

    Same story here, had bought 2 rows of 10 dogs with no white shirted dog between them in the dark area, another "4 days" of wasted coins.
    Having people you see frequently from street-pass works much better though, they rise a level every time you see them, but didn't know anyone with a 3DS until after completing the quest.

    But now System Settings is the most used application says the log, any way to reset that counter? Deleting the application only works until you run System Settings again, well not that big of a deal anyway, but would be nice..

    Erm....no....[​IMG]

    Well, twice, I guess. I've shaken the 3DS upon first getting it to see the amount of force required for it to actually register. The other time was when I was home sick and didn't get a chance to do my 2 miles of walking, and I needed the coins [​IMG]

    I've cheated probably about 30 days worth of coins at this point.
