    So... I'm in the Boston area, and have picked up, maybe like 6 people total over a month (I'm actually outside the city)...
    but now I'm in NYC and I went to a kid Icarus event at the NintendoWorld store, it was nuts, I picked up like 30+ people and my kid icarus got crazy amount of gems, my other games got things too...

    let's be honest, it makes me carry my 3DS more when I go out...

    but I wonder if Nintendo could have done an alternate implementation. Instead of always being console to console, I was hoping it could do this:

    Send your location over spotpass (aka wifi) and your goodies you have to share
    Nintendo holds your location say 24h? If another 3DS passes by your same location w/in that timeframe, it counts.

    They could even make it count "less", like that would give you a "you met XYZ's ghost" or something...

    Whenever I go to uni, which is around 26 miles return journey I get about 4 streetpasses and funnily enough they are different everytime.

    I work as a courrier and I haven't streetpassed anybody during my job. On the other hand, when I met with my friends I got 5 streetpasses. And that's it.

    Take the metro in Boston--you'll get hits on pretty much every trip. (At least I have.)
     
  5. But they don't have to be in sleep mode to tag.

    I still want to know why sometimes when I have multiple 3DS units in my bag only one will get a streetpass hit. Or, all but one. Happened yesterday when I went to Gamestop for a Pokemon download.

    I personally have been getting much more fun use out of my streetpass.
    Between completeing puzzles, and destroying peoples coin rush records, i really enjoy seeing my little green light flash.

    In my experience, you do.
     
  12. Isn't it odd that I've been tagged when not in sleep mode?

    It is, yeah. I've tried with a friend but it wouldn't streetpass when we were playing games.

    They're probably too busy getting drunk and having promiscuous sex to turn streetpass on.

  16. Yeah, in-game it most likely wouldn't work.
    Especially in DS(i) titles.

    Not counting 7 StreetPasses with a creepy guy who occasionally passes by my house, I've only gotten two. (One British dude and a Finnish guy in Stockholm.)


    How? Every time I spend play coins for a puzzle piece I get one I already have. :(

    :rofl: :bow:

    Maybe they should just make more regular pieces available via spotpass, or maybe they should just allow you to choose what piece you want when using play coins.
