    Good news to all existing (and possibly soon to be) 3DS owners, the messaging system will be up for download on December 22 for EU (and possibly other regions) absolutely free! Before Christmas as well! :lol:

    Very nice, can't wait to share some cool stuff.

    They better not impose some shit where you can't exchange notes with foreign friends though, but I extremely doubt it.

    It's between the friend list, so I doubt that'll happen. :)

    I get my 3DS within the next couple of days, too. :D Will be great to be treated to such an app.

    Damn, I misread this as having something to do with the letterbomb hack for the wii... you had my hopes raised for a moment there.

    Oh well, still looks like a pretty neat feature.

    I'd sure hope so. It would be a BIG mistake for Nintendo to not-include that kind of functionality.

    From the title, I thought this was something to do with video playback...

    I'm so glad it's free. This way everyone has it.
     
  18. While this is nice, it's pointless if you can't multi-task (integration with friends-list?) with it.

    YES. Basically, it's Pictochat with online features. You can also send pics and audio messages with it. LOL A 3DS SKYPE. YAAAAAAAAAY! The 3DS just keeps getting better and better.
