    I read on Google (to be exact, here's the link: The Escapist : News : 3DS SpotPass Downloads Have Potential for Spam) that there will possibly be advertisements for StreetPass. Do you think they will, and if you do, do you agree with it? I sure hope they don't, and I think most people wouldn't, either. There is also a possibility for hackers to get into your 3DS from StreetPass, or plant a virus in it.

    It's interesting to see what these 3D ads will look like, but I don't want to see them very frequently.

    It really depends what ads are on it. Imagine a 6 year old with a 3ds using streetpass and this ad pops up. 'Would you like a penis enlargement?' or 'cheap viagra, get them while you can for only 10cent a pill'. How exactly isa mother going to explain what that means? But when you get older you will probably laugh at it and maybe check the site out only to find its spam

    ^I doubt Nintendo will allow those type of advertisements, but I think these advertisements will be directed at Japan because they are getting free 3D TV!
