I can catch at least one other person using a handheld (mostly 3DS; Vita is much rarer) on public transportation every day. But I live in a very crowded city where it's easy to rack up at least 3-4 Streetpasses daily.

Every week when I go to my local 3ds meet up (we're usually playing Pokemon, monster hunter, bomberman or mario kart)
I dont see any vitas though (unless I decide to ask my friends to join me for Dragons crown)
I really hope Freedom wars gets people to do sony handheld local meet ups again (we use to do a few for monster hunter and gods eater on the psp back in the days) ^ idk if Freedom wars have online modes, but if theres online most chances is that the local community will continue to be dead
Its weird how if a nintendo game has online, noone uses it and still prefer's to play locally.. while if a Sony game has online, noone wants to play locally and everything is done online
Rarely. When I'm at work I'll see the occasional parent bring their car in with their kids in tow with a 2ds (probably won't even see that when summer is done though). On the bus? Never. I just see dumb people looking to get mugged playing on their phones. Lulz. Myself? I just bring my gba sp. SUPER portable, so glad I bought it two years ago not knowing I'd have to take it to work in my lunchbag.. lol.

Very rarely. The first time I saw a 3DS IRL was on a public transit bus back in 2011. I spent a disgusting amount of time that year riding the bus back and forth to collage, having someone to battle/trade Pokemon with was actually a pretty big help. There were also a couple of DS Lites and a PSP floating around that school.
I don't think I've seen a handheld in public since that year. I don't even see that many smartphones being used for anything other then quick texts/calls.

Rarely and it's always a child when I do. I assume most people over the age of 13 go out with specific purposes and not to play games.
Well, when I was in school, I saw quite a few 3DS' in the wild. So I don't think handheld gaming is taboo amoung teens and adults (at least it shouldn't be). I think its just that if they're not going to be out for a long time, they probably see no reason to carry a handheld, or play a game.
I'm a high schooler in America and my school is actually pretty cool with 3DSs. I was able to convince 2/3 of my closest friends to get 3DSs as well (still trying on the last one). I can get maybe 7 or so streetpasses in a day, but I don't think there are any vitas. I also go to a Magnet school, so it's a bit nerdier than your standard high school.
