Streetpass is so pointless.

I've had my system since launch, and I've only received a notification once. Unless you're living in a close-knit community, or sprawling urban area, good luck getting any use out of this feature. What bothers me even more is how certain games and applications require you to exchange data with other systems, as if every person alive owns one.

Don't get me wrong, I love my 3DS. :3

Its very useful in japan. also a few years from now unless you live in a rural or very small town you should get lots of them.

What games require using it? I thought it was mostly an extra.

^ Games don't "require" it. But it'd be nice if they did.

Everyone owns Ocarina 3D, right? Why couldn't Nintendo add a StreetPass feature to that?

I think the only game that requires it is the puzzle pieces game in the StreetPass Mii Plaza. I don't think you can get a piece for a new puzzle board unless you StreetPass someone with that different piece.
