Skype is overrated. I don't even know why people like it. Aren't webcams better quality?

Lol skype has nothing to do with Webcams. If you want to compare compare to Yahoo, MSN Messenger and..ugh..I guess Facetime or as I call it, Failtime.
It's one of the most popular online chat, video chat, phone program on the net.

Free phone calls to other computers, really low prices for calls to landlines and mobile phones, video chat, high number of users, easy to install and use, premium services such as call forwarding and voice mail, wide range of compatible hardware... and you call it overrated?
And Skype uses webcams.

That would be so awesome, and it would be a great feature that will help sell the 3DS. I have online friends that use Skype all the time and I would not only be limited to making calls on my laptop. And with what JadeGirl was saying about Pictochat, I agree with her...Pictochat was pretty useless on the DS, they should make that a wifi feature, like a group chat room feature. Any kind of communication via wifi connection would be great.
I wouldn't always want a webcam to chat on, but it will be nice. One would always have to angle the 3DS camera to show their face, instead of having their 3DS any kind of way in their hands, with an earpiece with mic plugged into it.

Wait, so Skype is a whole internet communication thing? And it includes videochat?

Skype for 3DS would be pretty cool. It would definitely give me a reason to start up my old account again.

And it's (mostly) FREE!

I'm pretty sure whatever video chat Nintendo puts out will only do 3DS to 3DS chatting. You'll need their unit's number and some kind of approval from them, most likely, too. Skype would allow you to use your 3DS to chat with anyone else on the internet or who owns a phone. Infinitely better, if Nintendo allows it to happen.
I hope it would be for just 3DS users, it would make it all the better to buy and it would help sells to go skyhigh, if it were just for the 3DS it would make it very unigue.

No, I think having Skype would be far more of a draw than if it was a Nintendo-only voice chat service locked to the 3DS. Gamers who already use Skype would be very tempted to have it in their pocket wherever they went. It's yet another draw to non-gamers too, since with Skype they could call their friends' cellphones or home phones too.
Really, there's pretty much no way Nintendo could release a phone app that could be better than Skype. They may as well not reinvent the wheel and let Skype do it for them. After all, Skype already expressed interest in the DSi - the 3DS would be an even better prospect for them.

it would be nice if nintendo did away with epic long friend codes and used usernames or the like. Even using the club nintendo thing would be better than those damn friend codes.
And skype would kill on the 3ds, I'm already getting it on day one based on potential anyway, might as well give us something to waste our time with. =]

@TomatoMonster, I agree with you, I don't want to see anymore friend codes! Nintendo should do the Club Nintendo sign in thing.

The friend codes are another part of the Nintendo uniqueness although I see what you guys are hammering at.

@TokyoRed Friend codes were never a good idea. If that "uniqueness" goes, everyone will be happier.

i'd like to express my full agreement with this as well. skype on 3ds is a humongous win.

look at friendcodes, everybody is hoping on nintendo to drop the whole half assed idea, and announce it uses a account based solution.
But in the back of our heads we all know nintendo is yet again going to do it differently.
But i agree totally with your post tho

I would rather have Skype than a Nintendo voice chat service because I would like to communicate with people on their computers and phones. If it was a Nintendo voice chat service, people would only be able to chat with other 3DS owners via their 3DS.

@supernin10do, yeah that would be great, unlike the Skype on the PSP was kinda lame to me. The PSP Skype kept logging me out and its slow and you have to buy a headset and all that junk so thats upsetting! I hope we won't have to pay to call folks on the computer that would be a draw back.

Then you should find out more about Skype. Skype-to-Skype calls are and will always be free.
It's only the premium services like Skype-to-landline and Skype-to-cellphone calls which are paid.
