    I mean it is in pokemon and some others and the ds has a mic. it would be easier than text based all the time.

    I actually think text-based is easier than voice chat.

    The main reason is why the microphone is horrible on the DS and the headset is overpriced in my opinion.

    Id like some voice chat wifi games, but they really need to come up with some better quality headsets first.

    I was never able to figure out if my particular DS had a crappy mic system or if that was just the quality of all DS mics. Maybe it's all em.

    Have you even heard the quality when voice chatting online? It's horrendous, and all that bandwidth it leeches could be going to something more useful.

    Pokemon's voice chat was pretty good, and the DSi's got a way better mic than the DSL.

    The DSi's mic is quite a bit better then the DS Lite and DS Fat's mics.

    I do not understand why games would just have Voice Chat, or just have text chat. It would make more sense for them to have both.

    A VC game would be too 'risky' for Nintendo, let-alone boring (not for Nintendo, just in general).
    Nintendo wouldn't want a game in which the sole purpose is interaction with others. Seeing as a lot of young children have DS's, they could come into contact with any 'weirdo' (someone on these forums). Which doesn't suit their family-friendly image.

    They could of course make it friend code only.. but then... it'd be as useless as pictochat (almost).

    Personally, I wouldn't really want a voice-chat game for DS... Just use Skype, or a phone...
