    So, here's some fresh information about the pedometer bonus on the 3DS.

    You earn "Play Coins" by walking with your 3DS in your pocket.
    To combat abuse, Nintendo are imposing limits:
    - Each 100 steps will earn you a single Play Coin.
    - You can earn up to 10 Play Coins each day.
    - You can only have 300 Play Coins on the 3DS at any time.

    Nintendo have also said that the way Play Coins will be used will be left completely up to the individual developer.
    For example, Lego Star Wars allows you to purchase special in-game content with them, while Street Fighter allows you to gamble them away in the hope of hitting the jackpot - Battle Figurines.
    Mii Plaza and AR Games are said to use Play Coins also, but no details yet.

    Wonder if changing the internal clock will bypass this. [​IMG]

    i garrentee it will have its own internal timer that checks to see if 24 hrs has passed then the clock is checked
    or like pokemon games (idk how that worked)
    where if you change it, it takes 24 hrs to change it again
    i think though
    it would use an internal timer or something to check

    Or instead of a internal clock, it could just be like Animal Crossing DS, where it would disable all events for the day if you changed the DS time (or switched DS's).
    Anyways, I was worried that Play Coins had to be bought with real money. This isn't bad at all, 1000 steps is nothing; I average 7000 on my Pokewalker everyday, though the 3DS will be a pain to carry around in my pocket all the time.

    No big deal at all you walk to go to the bathroom or eat food just bring it then idk there is plenty of walking you do that you prolly think is nothing and if you don't walk at all(unless due to medical problems) you need to work on that.
