Yeah, because local doesn't make much sense. Why chat with somebody over Pictochat who's sitting right next to you or a few feet away?

I've never even used it 'cos I don't know anyone local who has a DS.
Whenever I'm out some place and I see a kid playing on their DS I always want to ask them to 'chat' with me so I can give it a try. Seeing as I'm 43, I somehow don't think that would go down too well with their parents LOL

If it was online I would definitely use it. I haven't gotten the opportunity to try it out just yet and considering that it only works locally I may never get that chance either.

I think by "bad people" he rather ment pedophiles and kidnappers and since the DS is for everyone so for kids, too it's dangerous... there even was a reportage of the pictochat beeing a place for pedos even though it's "just" a 300 feet or so radius. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orpgUPNSRPI)

But you know the Nintendo DS and DSi oh yeah and the Wii, ALL HAVE PARENTAL CONTROL. Are you serious that people cant take 2 minutes to watch their child or even setup a password and/or lock features on a device. That is sad, i mean look people with a DSi turn it on, hit settings, go to the 3rd option, what's that parental controls oh my, now that wasn't hard

well maybe if picto-chat online had friend codes only it would be safe :) but if its chat rooms like on Xat chat then thats a no-no :( becuse thats random people and not people you added just like in windows live messenger ;)

EDIT: i think child protection services is just telling you how to raise your child and makeing worthless money buy some stupid add's like your child is very stupid he will do this becuse you know kids are realy stupid :P

im 13 and i have my own website! and i have never been kidnapped and i have been on the internet sence i was 3 this is somebody with experience
here dont lissten to them and follow these simple rules :)

1. you can say were your country and state is but never give away your town!
2. you can give your first name but never your middle or last.
3. you can know if someone is a child simpily buy if they try to back away from you becuse they think you a bad person but your actualy someone who is the same age or younger. becuse they can also think your a melester ;)
4. the older you get the less likely you will be kidnapped and if you own a company you can give away alot more than a kid could.
5. when websites say your not old anouth to join this site have your parents review the site. when i started playing runescape they said i had to be 13 but i started at 11 becuse my parents reviewed the game as being harmless ;)
6. have fun! i have actualy made friends with kids the same age from alover the world simpily by knowing how they act and if there willing to show you a picture and you send them a picture of you back and study them and ask them realy hard if there a mellester :D

Yeah, that would be a nice idea. But there should be age groups, just so the kids dont end up chatting with the trash talking idiots.

wont be on here anymore

I think it should be something that you have to at least download of the shop channel, rather than an update. Even if it was free, it would still help.
I think that if it was a friend system, it would work perfectly!

Just let it happen.

It'd be cool, but I can see why Nintendo hasn't done it. Things would get out of hand real quick.

considering the system's target age is silly, impressionable kids, i absolutely believe there would be kids giving out personal info and people trying to hook up with minors via PictoChat, 'friend' system or not. too easy to make random 'friends' online, which ruins it for the rest of us.
