    I'm sick of seeing all of my friends on my friend's list without the option to invite them to games. Hopefully an update will resolve this.

    Sadly, I think DB is right. It's highly unlikely that Nintendo would make such a feature. They would have to do an overhaul of the system or make games that support that feature. And the 3DS released only a few months ago. If they saw this thread right now and decided to do it then it would take them well over a year to complete it. Just sayin.

    It would.. take a year to create a messaging system? Really?

    Man, I should sign up for Nintendo. I can write a simple messaging client in half an hour [​IMG]

    lol message system?
    no one found it yet?

    my friends message and arrange games through 3DS

    you get a twice blink orange light when new message

    you just see whos online and change you message accordingly

    we all know how to use this system and you can do it without closing the current game

    uses the Wifi

    A messaging system that uses spotpass and streetpass is a given. I hope this isn't a missed opportunity, seeing as the Wii could send rudimentary messages to other Wii users.

    I wouldn't go far as never. The Nintendo reps did say they are working on something so that you can commuicate with your friends on your friends list. They may add a text chat in the near future.

    Message your friends in the friend list? Look at my blog article if you're referring to that. [​IMG]

    Well you know how companies drag their asses and go through the motions. It would be very easy for them to make a simple messaging client, do you really think they would make it simple? ...I see no reason why they wouldn't.

    Nintendo can't make a good online system, so obviously never. The Wii and DS online sucked, the 3DS online system sucks as well and obviously, they will do the same crap with the Wii U.

    How hard is it to do it like PSN and XBL?

    Nintendo already said that it will be available in a futur update. Capcom also mentionned that an update will be made to SSF4 to use that feature and chat to friend before a fight.

    You just contradicted yourself there [​IMG]

    Anyway, no matter what they add to a messaging system, it can't in any way take a year to develop one. It might take a year before they start working on it, but it's absurd to think they'd have to develop it for that long.

    There
    And otherwise you'd simply have to use the browser. I beleave sites like Ebuddy are working in the 3DS browser. Haven't tried it out myself yet, tough.

    I miss Pictochat. If they gave the 3DS an online version, it'd be awesome. [​IMG]

    Fanboys: YESYES OF COURSE DAMMIT NINTENDO ARE GODS!
    Normal people: Probably not. If they wanted to integrate a messaging feature they would have done it already. Like RedJiggly said, use eBuddy.

    Except they already said it was coming.


    It'll come eventually. Knowing Nintendo, it'll take ages and will be mediocre, but it'll come.

    Fanboys: Already confirmed in IwataSays. It won't be soon, but they say in a few updates.

    It's something they really should get on. Such a nice friends list feature for almost no reason!

    I did not. I simply asked a question and stated my thoughts on it. Some things just don't sound right typed.

    Assuming they make a messaging client, Nintendo could go either way in terms of complexity.
