Do you think you'll have many Street Pass opportunities where you live?

I live in a village in the middle of the country, and I can't imagine passing too many 3DS gamers walking around here. I'm sure there will be other people with a 3DS, but I doubt if I'll walk past them with their consoles. The nearest town is a good 30 minutes away, and I go there about once a month. I guess my best bet would be going into the Game store there and hope someone else has their 3DS on. It seems like my chance of doing any Street Passing is pretty slim.

What's it like where you live? I'd be curious to see how quickly some of you can get a good idea of how this works.

I'm from Indiana in the U.S. and I doubt I could pass through people in my small city and get their 3DS information. The nearest city is a little over 40 minutes away and I'll be closer to there when I go to college. Right now, though, I'm not going to get much in my hometown.

Im pretty lucky. I live in downtown Nashville,TN, and everyone carries their DS around. And considering the fact that all of the nearby outlets that have 3ds pre-orders are sold out, I know for a fact i'll be meeting some people.

Mine. Very, very low. Heck, I'll probably be one of the around 5 people who actually have one here. Sure, more people will get it eventually, but it's very low at the moment. Still, I do travel a bit to bigger cities, where i'll probably get more connections.

Probably have a few encounters, here in Bordeaux (France) though I'm not too sure, as for what I have seen, it's not a very gamer town.
But maybe I'm wrong, we'll see ^^

I live in a small town in Alberta, Canada. The couple of gamers I know in town aren't really into portable gaming.... but I do go to the college and so I'm hoping streetpass might pick up something around the library. I'd love to find out that there are people at the college who have one but are just busy studying.

Otherwise I do go to a couple of anime conventions every year and they often have gaming areas, so I think I'll get the most use out of it there. At the very least when I meet up with some of my friends (who live out of town) to go to Otafest and I know they'll be packing theirs with them.

At home, heck no. But I'll be in college by the time I get one so I might have a little bit of a better chance there.

I don't expect many opportunities, but I'm gonna keep my 3DS in my purse sometimes just in case. I'm bound to come across at least a couple of kids who've got a 3DS and like to carry it around.

some people are actually making groups and planning events where people can meet up for street pass. It's great if you don't live in a place with a lot of people. Some events are already planned. http://nintendo3dsblog.com/the-power-of-streetpass

It's very overpopulated where I live, being a college area. (Traffic is terrible! D:)

That being said, I've seen several people playing their DSi's on the bus on the way to school, so I have high hopes of the Street Pass being popular here. :)

I imagine I'll gather at least a couple StreetPasses. Wlking around the mall, in restaurants, grocery store, etc. I'm bound to pass at least a couple 3DS's along the way. It will probably be a slow thing to start but as the 3DS builds it's customer base, it should become more common. Imagine if the DS had this feature from the start, by now you would be hard pressed to walk around a public place and NOT get a StreetPass. ONE WEEK TO GO!!!!!!!

I live in a city with a little over 100,000 people, and there is a ton people with DS's here. Should get quite a few. And I do go to NYC every once in a while.

I'd probably run into 5 to 50 people, especially if I'm in Tulsa or at the mall.

I'm a mailman, and I plan on carrying my 3DS around in my mail satchel, so there may be a good chance that I get some hits everyday. Each one of my routes has over 600 deliveries, so that should give me a shot at running into someone else that owns one. Also my wife and 3 kids will each have one.

Wow, a 3DS family! The systems alone will rack up $1250, not including taxes! :o

Should be fine me. I use public transport quite a bit, and DSes are popular here in Sydney amongst commuters.

I live in Tulsa, fellow Okie! We may get each other on Street Pass and not even know it! I'm sure I'll get a lot of hits taking it to Woodland Hills mall nearby where I live (where GameStop is that I'm buying the 3DS from).
