Well Nintendo isnt trying to make the online portion of the game that large anyway, so it wont have lag. BUT, dont get me wrong, the game is going to be huge, but they narrowed the numbers of racers in online play down to 4 so there wont be too much lag if there even is any period. But when you are playing single card play or multi card, then you can play up to 8 people, because they want the online play to be the slice of the cake.

Questions and Answers

From: Satoshi_Tajiri
1: I live in Argentina. Will there be hotspots for DS here (or outside US and Japan)? Or I will have to buy a router?
2: Will there be another place where I can buy the USB connector? I don't want to buy it online, for the simple reason I will have to pay a lot of taxes.
3: How much does the USB connector and the router cost ?


1. I believe they said worldwide also so if they don't do the Mcdonalds thing there, they also stated that they were going to open up alot of their own hot spots, Nintendo Style.
2. You could probably order it straight from Nintendo via phone, the shipping and handling costs are a flat fee of $5.00 for what you are getting, but for anything else under $5.00 shipping is free.
3. When it was announced, it was in Europe, so they estimated that it would be about $53 dollars in America. But this is only an estimate, and it is subject to change.

Hmm. Does that mean that the wifi thing will be only in the US?
Im Canadian you see~


I don't think Nintendo would do that if they wanted everybody worldwide to play, and trust me, if Nintendo doesn't do it, then some 3rd party developer will, and it will probably be cheaper too.

How much does it matter how fast and efficient a router is? Would connecting through a router with only a 54 mbps data transfer rate be vastly different from connecting with a router with a 108 mbps transfer rate? Or does the transfer rate even matter?

What I'm trying to ask is would this router be functional and/or fast for my DS?

Question: I keep hearing about wireless routers and how you can connect multiple computers using one ISP with them. Well, what if you only have one computer in your house? Then what do you do to use the Nintendo DS's wi-fi capabilities?
