    We all know nowadays that it's impossible to chat with friends over 3DS. I mean, we have a friend list(that its kind of useless), we have Miiverse, but for some reason, Nintendo thinks that chat with friends is something we dont need over a portable console.
    Yes we had Swapnote for a while but it was just awful to use it anyway.
    So i was thinking, is it hard to make a suitable website for chatting over the 3DS? Something simple like whatsapp, but made exclusively for the 3DS? So, while in game, we could just open the browser, login to the webapp and just chat with our friends!
    I know we can just chat with them through our phones, but as many people here, i have some friends that i dont know personally and i just want to chat with them when i am playing my 3DS.

    So, what do you think about this?

    Can't you just join an IRC channel from the browser? Or use something like the facebook chat?

    Can't we turn the 3ds into a time machine?

    It would be nice to be able to chat at least by text over the 3DS. It feels useless to add friends to my 3DS at all.

    Why doesn't the 3ds have a web browser? But the DSi does. That is not right. I dont think we will get a chatting app for the 3ds.
