100 Steps is 1 Game CoinI think the daily cap is pretty peculiar. 10 coins at 100 steps each is 1000 steps. An average daily step count of 1000 - 5000 is usually correlated to a sedentary life-style, yet Nintendo saw fit to only reward players for up to 1000 steps. Perhaps there will be some included tips that point out that about 6000+ steps daily has been found to relate to a healthier life, but perhaps not. I don't out-right disagree with only being able to earn 10 coins a day, mostly because I don't know the value of a coin for 3DS software content, but I am suggesting that it would have been a better decision to require a higher step count to get all the coins possible for a day, for the sake of health benefits and getting people to carry their 3DSes around on more occasions.
You can earn a total of 10 Coins a day
Maximum of 300 Coins
Can be spent in the Mii Plaza and AR Games (and other games that take advantage of Game Coins, of course)
I'm actually quite happy with the prospect of a fairly low max limit of holding 300 coins at a time. I know I for one will carry my 3DS around as often as possible, with StreetPass enabled, which means I could easily rack up the daily 10 coins, and in turn rack up coins faster than some people. I've always hated games where you accumulate too much money, because it just means I get nearly annoyed about finding more. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass comes to mind, in that regard; no pertinent wallet cap (9999 I suppose), an abundance of money to acquire, and there isn't that much you need to purchase and/or it isn't priced nearly high enough to match what you acquire.
Are you guys excited about Game Coins, either for yourself, or for encouraging other people to carry their 3DSes around? Do you have an objections with them based on the details we have so far? Let me know in the comments.
