Never got into streetpass with the 3DS.   Seemed like a waste of what was already pretty limited battery life.  I typically kept all that turned off.  I did end up going to a pokemon tournament in Atlanta with my bro and my oldest son (they played, I was mainly there as the driver) fairly early in the 3DS's life.... and that was bonkers crazy for streetpass.  I can see why it might have been pretty popular in Japan and other areas with a dense population.

 

I would just like to say, for the record, that after about 10 hours (or less), Miitopia 3DS is the most boring thing ever.

Glad I passed on it.  It looked pretty boring in the videos I watched when it was announced.

As far as street pass goes. When it was really popular, I seemed to be lucky enough to have the local delivery people (usps, FedEx, and ups) have their 3ds . I would get at least 2 per day without even leaving the house lol.

Anyone else miss getting Streetpasses whenever they take their 3DS out?

 

I used to take it everywhere I went out, and got plenty of Streetpasses for my efforts.  A majority of them, of course, coming from places like McDonald's or Best Buy - that had Streetpass relay stations.  No longer.  In fact, I've stopped taking it out all the time now as it has become a waste.

 

It would have been nice if the Switch had a similar thing to Streetpass hits. 

I so rarely ever got StreetPass hits from real humans when I took my 3DS with me almost every day that it was more of a wasted opportunity than anything with the puzzles.

Anyone play Neo ATLAS 1469? Looks like it might be my kind of game.

Those math games look intriguing. Anyone here have experience with them? It would be nice if my 6yo was learning some during his video game time.

The great majority of StreetPass hits I've gotten on my 3DS have been from taking it through the games sections of electronics stores back when they still had 3DS units out on the floor for demos. After that, I just stopped going around with my network functionality turned on, it took up too much battery for no real purpose.

The only StreetPasses I ever got was from Comic Con. Even taking it around the Asian part of town, I never got anything.

Any word of Picross e9's North American release?  I think e8 released the same week in JP and NA, but it looks like that wasn't the case with e9 last week... sigh

Is there a website for historical eShop prices, similar to psprices.com for Playstation or storeparser for Xbox?

You can search for price history on psprices.com for:  Switch, 3DS and Wii-U.  There's a system selection menu at the top of the page.

They have watched the prices for about a year now, most people dont even think of going there because of the name.
Its not the easiest site to deal with.. but the price watch is pretty accurate. And they do have physical copy listings also.

Day 1 purchase.

But... will it require constant internet connection? Cause that will suck for portable play on the road.

The console versions don't require an internet connection, so it shouldn't be an issue.

I bought Diablo III the day it came to PC.. then the day it released on PS3... and then again on PS4. I have been tempted many times to rebuy it again on the X1 even now hahah. I want this pretty badly on Switch but I also would love to just wait for a sale (digitally). Though... I said the same thing about Skyrim and am still waiting. : /

 

What are we thinking, standard $59.99 MSRP?

The Forbes article said it would launch at 59.99.

Yeah $60. Hoping for a physical release so I can get it cheaper at Best Buy with GCU.

Now I did see a message about Xbox having service issues right now... but I'm *required* to log into my Xbox ID *Before* I can log into my D3 characters.

 

Will not allow me to play without logging into my Xbox account.

There lies the problem. 

 

Could try on PS4 also (yeah, triple dipped. About to be quadruple dip lol) 

 

Edit:

Yep... same thing.

Turn internet off... Can't access my characters. Internet *IS* required to play any seasonal character. (no reason to NOT play seasonal btw...)

That's more of an Xbox Live issue, not Diablo III. You could try going into the network settings and click on the offline option to play games that don't require a connection.
