Considering the 31st is a Saturday this year, and it's also the last day of the year it was announced for, that's most likely a placeholder. Feel free to continue discussing Xenoblade's impending release in this existing thread if you like. :3

@portista: If you don't know, why bother responding?

@koryz: yes, if you're tagged by another person and their Mii arrives on your 3DS, whatever answers they've attached to said Mii will show up along with them. There are fields for 'Dogs or cats?', 'Hobby', and 'Dream' (those three are filled out by selecting your Mii in the Mii Plaza and choosing 'Mii Settings', then 'Edit Profile'), then 'Birthday', and 'Creator' (those two are filled out while creating your Mii). The other user's region and last 3DS game played will also be shown. You can choose whether or not to display Creator information to other people via StreetPass ('Mii Settings' then 'StreetPass Setting'), but it doesn't give you the same option for birthday info (then again, they don't allow you to fill in what year you were born, just the day and month).

You can choose which Mii you'd like as your StreetPass Mii, though; it doesn't have to be your default. So long as you created it, you can use it for StreetPass. If you don't want to show your birthday at all, just don't fill that information in when you create it. :3

If you have any more StreetPass-related questions, please ask them in the StreetPass thread. Thank you :3

@Stereoman: No, what you stated was

Dont rant on Game
you guys there in UK and NA should be happy , you get the 3DS anyhow for much lower prices.
jeeeshh its like you get a 3Ds plus 3 free games lol ....
not so in other countries ...
so Game sounds still as a good shop as any gaming shop for me , and if you dont want to get involved in such offers just dont buy preowned stuff.

if you'd said what you just said in reply #26 instead, i wouldn't have bothered, as that was firmly focused on the original post in question as opposed to looking as if it were directed at some of the other things that've been said so far in this thread.

@Stereoman: ... because getting something cheaper than someone else in another country magically makes all the other, more pertinently offensive business practices okay. i suppose i also shouldn't bother mentioning it when a local restaurant chain consistently gets my orders wrong (because that food, filled with things i'm allergic to or not, would easily cost two or three times as much somewhere in the world) or when certain auto repair chains charge two or three times as much as the local guys and constantly try to get you to have them fix crap that doesn't need fixing because they know they can get away with it (because there are people in other countries who can't even afford cars, let alone having them repaired and/or serviced regularly). Duly noted!

so long as they're not selling those 'pre-owned' consoles at full price, who cares?

They probably are, what's to stop them from doing so?

Personally, i despise GAME, their in-store pricing is disgraceful and i’ve had instances in the past where i’ve bought (supposedly) new games from them, only to find they had existing save files on them.

They take the opportunity to screw people over, whenever.

sounds like a British Gamestop, then — i've heard of the 'save files on supposedly new games' thing popping up every so often from GS before, and they've got some shady practices of their own depending on the store and manager(s) involved (loaning out games to employees and selling them as new afterward, refusing to sell games in their original shrink-wrap, giving crap for trade-in value and reselling the same games at nearly-new prices, etc. and so forth). still, as James says, 'probably doing' isn't the same as 'actually doing', y'know? we can assume the worst, but there's no knowing for sure without proof.

The only one losing is Nintendo. Instead of selling two new 3DS systems, Game buys one and then makes pure profit selling that one pre-owned.

But that's the beauty of the pre-owned market I guess.

how are they making pure profit? they already paid out of pocket for it, and they're selling it as pre-owned, not new (new they're 196-ish there, so discounted for pre-owned status they'd probably be about the same price as they paid for it at the other store). they can only hope to sell something else along with the Tesco-bought 3DS (games, accessories, etc.) in order to turn any kind of real profit this way.

normally, you would be right about the pre-owned market, but this isn't really the same 'give the customer maybe half of what they paid for it and then sell it almost at the same price as new' deal, y'know?
