    Read this on IGN and got quite a few laughs. It's actually quite true...

    Having seen this commercial myself, it's quite true. The video above is the commercial in question, if you were too stupid to get that.

    Warning: next message might make you if you are american and have no ironical sense of humor for stereotypical jokes - meant only for fun, no offense.

    Someone should just sue them for millions, because of lying in national commercial. And buy 16 DSi XL's -and raffle them for gbatempers

    I've always wanted to have a mi-fi or something like that for my DS:). I can't afford $30 a month for it though. [​IMG]

    they could just be being really anti social and playing people online while sitting next to each other

    Then again, maybe they are each playing a different race with random online oponents.


    Supersonicmonk beat me to it. You don't have to be antisocial, though. Of all my friends that have a DS, no two are on the same skill level in Mario Kart [​IMG]

    I used WiFi while sitting right next to my brother once. It was cool.

    The commercial is what one would call 'Fail' though [​IMG]
