3DS StreetPass Appeals to No One

CCC Says: "StreetPass is Nintendo’s way of telling 3DS gamers to get out of their rooms and actually meet some people. In case you don’t have a 3DS, here’s how it works: When two 3DS systems pass each other, they exchange Miis (player avatars) in a program called StreetPass Mii Plaza. These Miis can then be used in games, which earn the player special rewards, such as Mii hats and special 3D pieces of art. While these games can be played without StreetPass by exchanging Nintendo’s virtual PlayCoins for what are essentially digital friends, the PlayCoin expenditure is high, and it’s much easier to simply find some other people that have a 3DS and use their free Miis instead."

Didn't they just reveal not to long ago that they made like $4 million from Street pass?

I'm as confused as you are.

Especially when this is how many hours I logged for StreePass Mii Plaza:

They made $4 million off of 4 very low budget, low marketing cost games in one month, sold at $5 each (or 4 for $15).

Street Pass is neat because you can have your 3DS in your pocket at all times and passively gain free content and other bonuses. It's part of their social push for their systems, I think it appeals to a lot of people, not everyone, but it does exist

Didn't they just reveal not to long ago that they made like $4 million from Street pass? How can it appeal to no one?

I enjoyed it while I had a 3DS. I just wish they would do in-game items to trade like Near does on the Vita.

Is this a joke? Streetpass is one of my favorite things to do, it actually gets me excited to leave the damn house.

Yep1771d ago

This. Whenever I leave my house, I'm always making sure to bring my 3DS with me. If I don't and acknowledge that I didn't I usually end up bummed at a missed opportunity to get more play coins.
