this, haha. then again, if you're buying a 3DS specifically for SpotPass, you've got bigger problems than potentially not being able to find a place to snag you some internets :3

I think the function will work fine. There's already a number of areas that have wifi hotspots for mobile phones and other wifi spots that I find are pretty open. And from my understanding spotpass was more of a thing to keep you updated as you walked by.
As for streetpass... yeah I'm pretty sure I won't come across anyone with a 3DS where I currently live but I go to a number of anime conventions every year so I suspect I'll get pretty good use out of it there.
What I find interesting is the couple of comments that have stated that streetpass is made for the Japanese market. I can agree with that, especially considering Nintendo is a Japanese company.So I ask you this then. Would you have preferred Nintendo made the Japanese version with Streetpass and then made a NA version without?
IF you don't think Streetpass will work for you then don't use it. I figure it won't have much use in the town that I'm in as it's small and I haven't ever seen anyone or heard anyone talking about gaming (at least not Nintendo gaming anyway). However I've always carried my DS with me and I'll continue to do so with the new one. If I end up picking up Mii's through Streetpass then I guess that'll be a nice surprise for me.

There really should have offered a 3G version. There has to be a huge market of people that aren't just going use their 3DS on-line while at there house. It just puzzles me that while Nintendo pushes the boundary, like motion controls and 3D, they are always behind the times in other aspects, poor downloadable service and now this SpotPass.
I would bet that they didn't opt for the 3G on the 3DS because it would shorten the battery life to the point where you'd want it plugged in anyway.

Nintendo is always going to be a step behind everyone else with online offerings, I suppose. It could be worse.

Personally, I'm glad that we're getting SpotPass and StreetPass over here too. Sure, they'll be harder to use over here (especially Spotpass, but I'm not too worried because I have wifi at home), but they both sound like cool features. I really do hope (wish) people would use StreetPass over here. I think Nintendo really hopes that people will too. I think Streetpass, even more than SpotPass, sounds fun. I like the sound of the Mii trading and the possible item trading & the fighting game streetpass mode battling that some games will have sounds cool too. I will def. use the Mii creator & Mii plaza a lot. I doubt there will be too many people around here that use streetpass...but I can hope. lol. (as aside: I wish more people around here had used Dragon Quest 9's tag mode...)
Anyway, I think Nintendo's new online offerings sound great. I'm very excited about them.

Its fine. Though I rarely take MY handheld out. Too costly an item/

Costly is relative.

@The Fox: You're right, that's true. Actually, I'm the same way, though it's not because of the monetary value of the item, it's more the fact the I absolutely cannot stand anyone else touching/looking at/breathing near one of my consoles, and wouldn't imagine ever losing anything that I own.

I think it'll work well mainly in Japan and not so well in others. Surprise!
Fixed, it is obvious that Nintendo developed these features with only Japan in mind. With that said, it doesn't matter to me. Since the Wi-Fi USB Connector is more than likely compitable with the 3DS, I don't have to worry about traveling everywhere searching for a random hotspot.

Something that's been bothering me is the legality of SpotPass. It's against the law to use someone's wireless connection without their permission even if it's not password protected, but if the 3DS does this automatically without my even trying to steal Internet access from someone, am I breaking the law?

That's an interesting point. I'm sure its legal though. Nintendo is a big company who has been in this business for many years. I'm quite sure they wouldn't screw up so badly as to make an illegal funtion in there system. I'm sure they looked into all the legal stuff brfoe we even knew of 3DS's existence.

I think we'll still see plenty of use of this feature. Being in a public place with it just in sleep mode will bring new content. Don't expect this for a while though. We'll have to see the population of system owners go up but when it's where the DS is now, I would expect to get at least 10 interactions walking accross a mall. Again, this won't become common until at least the second year in it's lifespan.
