    Ok, so this is just a thread for the wishlist of things you would like to have for the 3ds. So let me just state mine and you can say yours in the comments below:
    1. Miiverse, So you can also post your ideas and have instant messaging.
    2. Video chat, so that you can actually see the person you are talking to.
    3. Gamertags(not really needed, but is just an extra) Like the wii u, we don't want these long friend codes.
    4. Youtube app, so we don't have to take out our devices to see things on youtube.
    5. Netflix and other video subscribtions for Pal 3ds' not only for the USA.

    (I like long system updates because you will know that something really good will come)
    Nintendo, Please release a major update for the 3ds!

    So those are mine most wanted additions for the 3DS, What are yours?

    I made a thread afew weeks ago about this, I'll copy and paste what I wrote in that thread..

    1. Miiverse, after using it on a friends Wii U I was pleasantly surprised.
    2. New Streetpass features or an updated quest for the Plaza,more hats and mini-games?
    3. Redesigned eshop - It a total cluster of crap at the moment, can't find shit.
    4. Updates to the Letterbox/Swapnote app - It's painfully slow at the moment..
    5. Ability to change the colours/ add pictures to the main menu folders
    6. A simple messaging tool.... the simple ability to go into the friend list and give someone a message, is that be truly so hard to implement?

    nice, adding to yours, if the will be an instant messaging system they should add a light to show when a person has messsaged you.

    Yeah, the orange light that flashes when a friend is online should beep in standby mode to show that youve got a message.

    The only thing I can think of that's not mentioned here (at least not in detail) is the eShop. It needs to be completely redesigned to be more like the Play Store. It needs to support background downloads (like the Wii U), it needs to be easy to navigate in order to find what you want (even if you don't know what that is yet), it needs to have proper categories and not just a small selection of them on the front page that change all the time, and most of all, it needs to load way faster.

    • Netflix - is for America only, PAL cannot even get it normally let alone on the 3DS, so just remove that.
    • Youtube - The only way we will be viewing youtube is through the browser, since youtube programmers are lazy and would have the 3DS crew make the app themselves and the 3DS crew are money hungry they won't be bothered since theres no money in it. And the browser is webkit, I have created several stripped down browsers with webkit and making java related activities work is virtually impossible even with all the loopholes in Visual Basic, so that wont happen.
    • Miiverse - It's a feature exclusive to Wii U, so you'll buy it, so you have both that are compatible with each other, they have no reason to move it as it makes them money. Strike that aswell.
    • Video chat - although it seems great in theory they wont even allow instant messaging unless it has the 'nintendo twist' (letter box shit) plus they did an update for sending videos, check the threads.
    • Gamer tags - Gamer tags are a good idea but they wont backtrack the friendcode system now that its to late as well as it being a unique new feature of the Wii U(aka, 'buy it now you fool' is what nintendo is implying)
    • Streetpass features - probably wont get updated unless they do some big promotional thing, so it will probably never happen (Aka they wont upgrade the current games as they want you to buy new paid 3DS games while there is no r4 cards for them) so thats a no go.
    • Redesigned eshop - They are to prideful, look at all other nintendo related stores and whatnot, have they ever got an extreme makeover? nope.
    • Updated letter shit - They are already updating with 3D features, video, pictures n shit (and voice recordings/sound?) so they will, but dont expect it to get any faster. again with nintendo stubborness.
    • Folder customization - No, nintendo will make the folders how they want, the more customization you get the less they control you, they want/need to control the consumer to make a profit, so they wouldn't bother or they would have done it in a previous update or on launch.
    • Messaging - That sounds way to 'normal' and 'helpful' for nintendo so they have to have their own special way of talking, I.E. letter bullshit, so dont expect that shit any time soon.
    • Background downloader - EXCUSE ME!? YOU THINK YOU CAN EXPRESS YOURSELF!? WANNA FUCKIN EXPRESS YOURSELF? Buy our apps good sir they are quite artsy., I.E nintendo will only give you more freedom and expression if it gives them a profit, and I dont think many people would buy backgrounds and even if they did again its a Wii U feature so they want you to buy that shit.
    • Easy navigation - What the shit? nintendo will laugh in your face as they think there 'amazing system' of filter searching will fix those needs, even though they're annoying as shit they wont change it.
    • Loading faster - How can they stream all the latest terrible apps you dont want? seriously they need to download a bunch of fucking scriptes and shit to your 3DS and whatnot that shit aint easy to do so dont go asking for any change to load time.

    Nah not angry or anything, just showing that these wont be added and the reason(s) why.

    And I was reading a thread in this section about it I believe.

    Funny, almost all of that has been confirmed.
    Metab, I can't believe you just posted that. If you don't know what you're saying, don't say anything at all.
    It's been confirmed for ages that Miiverse is coming to 3DS. Also, StreetPass has already had an update, so what's stopping it from getting another one besides you saying it won't?

    seriously, is it confirmed for the 3ds? when will it happen? where was it said this will happen?
    This is amazing if you are correct!
    What has been guaranteed from the list that will happen?

    Theming for the 3DS, different themes for any 3DS, maybe background images aswell, it would go great with folder customization, also better folders, instead of showing the fist letter of the named folder, you could add images, like instead of naming just place an image, either stock or from the photo album.

    Edit - I agree with all of the other post aswell.

    Miiverse, video chat, and I think Youtube, not sure about Youtube.
    Something like Gamertags should be coming with Nintendo Network, which would be paired with Miiverse (probably).

    Nope, you'd have to ask Iwata or Reggie.

    In other words nobody actually knows. Apparently this is all there is about video chat: link
    Still better than no mention of it at all. There was this about Youtube, and it was true about the Wii so probably true for 3DS as well.

    * New streetpass features (games) so it will be more attractive to streetpass.

    it has been said here before and it has been comfirmed by nintendo.

    hopefully it will be a totally new game that has nothing to do with puzzel swap or mii quest 1 or 2!

    this is just an idea, i think it will never happen but it is just fun to think about it.

    If you get something like 50 streetpass you get 1 bingo ticket, and you could pull the leaver and if you get 3 of the same kind you get £5, £10 or £15 according to which you get. This will make the streetpass feature popular but will lose nintendo lots of money lol. so it will never happen
