    Hopefully it will be voice chat.

    What do you people think it will be?

    The quoted text clearly says chat before the race starts. Which is a step in the right direction but still not useful for gameplay. I still doubt it will be voice chat.

    text chat would be a wasted effort. typing on the wii is aggravating as hell.

    Voice chat + Wii = the best thing ever!!! I've wanted this ever sense I knew the Wii would be online.

    I'd die to see a proper online multiplayer game that supports voice chat on wii! It would be the gift of life.

    Mhm. I always imagined a portable one that could snap into the wiimote like the nunchuk does. That doesn't seem like it'll become a reality however.

    Edit: I didn't mean a wire. I meant the keyboard just snaps directly into the slot. So if you held the wiimote backwards it'd resemble a spatula.

    Either way, it probably won't happen :p

    If its text chat, it'd be a waste. You'd be waiting 5 minutes to get a reply of 1, maybe 2 sentences. (I know it won't be 5 minutes, I exaggerate alot)

    Text chat is a wasted effort compared to vioce chat. But not a wasted effort in itself. Its better than nothing.

    But the wii NEEEEEDSSS voice chat!

    The Wii needs voice chat yes, but it won't be with Mario Kart.
    Surely the people who have previewed the game would have mentioned something as big as this.

    It will no doubt be text chat.
    But the next big Wii online game should have Voice Chat, I hope so at least.

    it'll be text chat, because it says you can chat with friends BEFORE the match, if it was voice chat you'de be able to chat during the match, its definetly text chat
