Best I can figure is the items are unlocked in several ways, it depends on the game. Some are viral, Like costume colors in MVC3, I unlock it a new color for a character and it gets shared via near, the next guy who checks in near my location can get my unlock as a game good. Other games like MOdnation go by distance you travel or landmarks. For instance you travel 10 miles you get a game good, or you visit Washington DC and get a game good for that. Others are accomplishments, like a best lap time in wipeout is shared as a agme good challenge for others to compete against.

So to answer your question, how you obtain or trigger a game good, all depends on the game in question

3 videos of people explaining near they watching them should fill you in. (if you still do not understand I can not help you.)

was I not clear? Some of the discoveries are viral, meaning you upload, someone else gets it as a download and vise versa. So it sent 2 things out for others to discover. Please read before posting

Oh I kinda see... Still doesnt make sense then... Ive been checking other peoples locations and havn't found a thing. The Near app seems pretty useless anyway, Why would I want to know what other people are playing?

The only thing I see it useful for is if you have friends, and also for the rateings.

but thanks for your answer anyway

I think it's basically sending out challenges for other people to do? That's how it came across in the first video linked.

Yeah ill just have to watch the vids. Sometimes the simpliest things can become the most complicated if you dont understand, then when you finally do understand you feel as dumb as rocks. XD
