I haven't gone out much with the 3DS yet so no luck for me...yet. Living in a small town + Streetpass = failure.

I have carried it in my pocket to go to the grocery store and stuff like that to get some coins. I rarely run into many people let alone people with a 3ds on them. I highly doubt I will ever get to use it except maybe if I goto the mall or a gamestop lol.

My first day out with the 3DS I got one Mii and after that... none. I'm hopeing when more people get it I will have a full plaza.

Yeah same for me. I'd rather just leave it off and conserve the battery.

The 3DS hasnt been out long. Once more people get it, Im sure if you go threw a populated area that you'll be bond to find atleast one person with a 3DS. I say a good time when that will happen is the up coming holiday season (Lets hope that new Super Mario 3D game will be coming out around the holiday season).

I went to Gamestop with streetpass on and still didn't get any other streetpassers.

Yeah I have no hope for the Streetpass feature, since the town I live in has a population of 1,000. Most of which are senior citizens. BUT, whenever I take it to a bigger town I might try to test it out. =]

I came across a fellow named Robeson six hours ago. I got his Mii and defeated him in a figurine battle. That was my only Street Pass success so far.

Not a one, unfortunately, and I even visited two different college campuses today. At least Nintendo had the foresight to allow us to use coins in the Mii Quest game.

Street pass will fade away like Pictochat. It has too many variables IMO to be successful. First you need to have a 3DS, then you need to be close enough, then you need it to be in SLEEP mode, and then for certain games you need to have it enabled etc etc. Yea you might get it ONCE in a blue moon, but I cant see it being used that much.

I'm up to 5. I'm in college so its actually quite fun. I recognize a few of the people based off the Mii's appearance.

That's because the bookstore's like the library....Not many I know would want to play a game when the allure of "special" books are on the shelves.

Unfortunately no. Even when I go to class on campus, I get no one. Since I love walking, I just leave it in sleep mode and get Play Coins.

Haven't had much success yet. Although, I just take it with me to work so I doubt I'll even get anybody there with a 3DS. I just carry it with me to get the Play Coins. I do think I'll get somebody if I got to the Mall or Gamestop. Looking forward to the weekend! Haha

A ton of book stores these days have things like Starbucks in them though, where 'tech-savvy' people tend to go. Which is where I was, basically.

The second day I had it (Monday) I went to Wal Mart after work, and when I got in my car I pulled it out of my pocket and noticed a green light blinking. Apparently someone else in the store had one, and I picked up a bearded lady Mii named Ladybeard. I was actually pretty surprised because I also live in a relatively small town, the system had just come out, and it was like 10:00 at night so the store wasn't very busy.

I've taken it to the restaurant I work at (which is usually really busy) and haven't picked up anything there yet. I'm not expecting too much this soon yet. Very few people are early adopters of systems like this... to call the feature a "failure" less than a week after the system's release is jumping the gun a bit. I can see it being a really cool fature once the 3DS sales really take off.

Edit; I also wanted to add, to whoever said they'd rather conserve the battery, I've carried it in sleep mode for 7 or 8 hours at a time, opening it up for a couple minutes here and there to show friends, and still had a "full" charge when I got home. Sleep mode takes up very little battery power.

I always take it with me, to my working place where there are 100s (working for a provider) and at school (a school for applied science) and I haven't met a singel person on Street Pass yet. Looks like this thing is either selling horrible here in Switzerland or most just don't care about this whole steps / Street Pass thing

I think it'll be the exact opposite of Pictochat. I think as more people buy a 3DS and discover StreetPass, the more it'll be used because of its passive nature.

I have met a total of 5 so far. I have only had it outside of the my neighborhood 3 times. So, I have picked up 3 at gamestop, two were workers. The other two were just walking around the mall. This weekend I have to stop at the mall of america.. I wonder how many I will get then. I haven't met anyone that has street fighter though to try out that street pass.

And as more games are released with Street Pass functionality, people will have more reason to walk around with their 3DS in sleep mode. You don't even need the game in the system when you pass people.

Yeah, sleep mode can last for 2-3 days(says the instruction booklet).

I live in Western North Carolina so it's basically small towns scattered about. I have my 3DS on me most of the time and have collected no one on street pass as of yet. Gonna take it to a more populated area tonight and hop to land a Mii somewhere.

I figured not too many folks have it around here just yet but I bet as the 3DS becomes more and more widespread the StreetPass will begin to kickoff.

Cool.. I'll be at the Asheville mall tomorrow.. if that's the same one you're going to.. Maybe you'll be my first Mii find. What a small world.

Nah no luck for for me. I went to school with it, walked around downtown with it and still did not find anybody. The only person I did pick up my friend who wanted to do the streepass thing. I can't wait til otakon tho [anime convention in Baltimore] since last year I got tagged by tons of ppl with dragonquest IX.

I agree that it might pick up speed as more people get 3ds' and more games come out that utilize streetpass functionality. I, personally have not gotten any but that's because I'm in a similar boat. I work in a library that's frequented by mainly older people, and I live in a small town that has few people around my age. I go to school but no one there I've met really plays games. I'm hoping to run across some next time I'm at gamestop or something.

Well I may have more luck probably because im working in a video game company.. so the chance that people got a 3ds is raised :)

living in a place where the 3DS will easily cost more than 600 dollars (DSi costs $300, wii at launch was $1100) + street pass = failure. i wanted to use it once i got it :(

Yes. In fact, today was my first Streetpass encounter. I was at a UIL competition and had taken my 3DS with me to keep me occupied after competing. I actually got one person :D

I got my first StreetPass hit today! It happened while I was in class from somebody who apparently walked by my room. I opened up my 3DS a few hours later and visited the Mii Plaza, and there he was! It was actually a really cool moment.

The only success I've had so far is my local game store -.-

But I expect over the next few months to get a lot more, an awesome concept imo.
