Lets see how many streetpasses I got at E3


For those of you that don't know, the 3DS has a feature called Streetpass that allows you to swap some data with people you pass by who are also carrying their 3DS. You can collect other people's Miis, rate them, use them to battle monsters and collect hats in a turn based mini-RPG that's built into the 3DS, swap 3D puzzle pieces, and that's just with the built in software. If you have retail titles like Super Street Fighter 4 and Nintendogs + Cats, you can get some game-specific Streetpass action as well.

The problem with Streetpass is that not that many people own a 3DS yet, and those who do seldom seem to carry them around. In fact, I rarely see regular DS's in the wild, despite the fact that Nintendo has sold tens of millions of the things in the US over the years.

I was hoping that wouldn't be the case at an event like E3. I brought my 3DS to the event to see how many Streetpasses I could get. Here's what happened.
