How Nintendo's 3DS StreetPass can only get better

MMGN.com: "To me, StreetPass is a step forward in a new kind of social gaming, similar to my opinion on aspects of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls' multiplayer systems. The potential to expand its capabilities and offerings is there -- improved gamer rankings and comparisons with one's MiiPlaza accomplishments, or a system similar to the Miiverse on Wii U, for instance -- and Nintendo are great in continously offering more StreetPass Quest and puzzles in each update, especially considering the surprising depth of two games furthered solely through wireless hits. But it seems to me outside of the pre-installed software, StreetPass it isn't getting anywhere near the developer support in individual games, that it deserves. At least, until this year."

I love this feature.

The problem with streetpass is that it has always assumed that you live in a big city. It then also assumes that people that you regularly streetpass with have the games that you have. I'm a negative on both of those, so Streetpass has been pretty lackluster for me. Streetpass can only go "up" because there is hardly anyone using it, as the article explains. I know dozens of people who have it who have no interest in it and never set it up.
