Funny Streetpass limitation

#1klecserPosted 11/19/2012 6:52:29 AM
A friend and I have had 3ds' for over a year now. We just reached 99 streetpasses a few days ago. We streetpassed again today, and the Plaza said that we have streetpassed...99 times. So, apparently a third digit is too much for it to handle.

I'm kind of surprised by this, because although I acknowledge that 99 streetpasses from the same person is a tall order for most 3DS owners, you would think that the count could go higher in a product manufactured in a country with very high population density. I am sure that many Japanese gamers have 99 streetpasses on many people.

Also, no achievement for this. ;P

It's pretty ridiculous but at least it's better than the moronic "10 coin per day" limit and things like only being able to get "3/3 SM3DL tags" at a time lmao!.

You'd think that Nintendo would want to encourage more exercise by increasing the limit you could get in play coins. Yes, you can just shake the system, but it may actually help people to walk more. I don't see how it can hurt to increase it.

Exactly. i walk ALOT and getting only 10 coins a day is pretty insulting. walking inbetween 6,000-10,000 steps per day (60-100 coins) and i only get 10 for it. lol!. an update of AT LEAST 100 per day with a max cap of 3000-5000 coins would be nice..

Fanboys, especially SONY fanboys, are what's wrong with gaming. Not changing my sig till someone proves me wrong.

increasing the 10 coin limit would mean you get more coins per day meaning you would complete find mii 1 and 2 and other games that uses coins more faster than usual.

Why don't you change the date every so often?

I agree though, it's bs

Seriously, how MORONIC is that idea? That would defeat half the purpose of lifting the freaking limit!!!

Something I haven't seen mentioned is that after you change the date back to today's date, even though the step counter doesn't reset, going another 1,000 steps still gives one coin per 100 steps (for example, you get 1,000 steps, set the date back, go 1,000 steps, set it back, go up to 2,000 steps for today's date, and end up with 20 coins per day plus 10 for the date set back to temporarily). Might be old news, but I'm mostly an infrequent lurker and I haven't seen anyone post about play coins for a while.
