    Nice to see Nintendo moving the correct path to better online.

    About 20 seconds to start and join a game, that's awesome, It would be much faster if you are actually playing online aswell.

    Thats pretty cool how your friends also change color when playing the same game, But does it bring you to thier online game instantly or just open the game for you?

    That is something the video didn't show. While it did go straight into online multiplayer, there wasn't anything indicating you were joining the same race as your friend (other than from the friend list). Maybe it does, and on the receiving end, it sends a quick message to them about you joining. Still, nothing showing that either from this video.

    I think it will bring to an online game. The join game is only activated when you and your friend are online. I can be wrong though.

    But the data transfer over various connections would be a bitch and the scene would find some way to abuse it.

    Looks to be a good implementation, and it joined quickly too ^_^

    What happens if you don't have the game cart (in this case Mario Kart 7) in the system? Does it prompt you to insert the correct cart or does it not pesent the Join Game option at all?

    I don't have a definite answer, but I would hazard a guess that it will either gray out the option, or give you a message saying to insert the game.

    I wanna know this too. the game isnt out till december everywhere and it slightly bothers me that only 8 characters are shown there and when we know there are way more and also that none of them are the "mii"

    I have a feeling this might be the "download play" option they have implemented into the game like on mario kart DS but even so... how do they have the game? lol

    Perhaps it's a magazine reviewer's version? Like something that IGN would get?
