Will you guys get MK Home Circuit

The overview trailer released today got me more interested in it since it does have more content than I initially expected. It has track customization, multiple modes, and its a cool and intriguing way to experience mario kart, and it'll be cool to have as an RC car. The technology also looks really cool too.

The price of 99$ tho is a little hard to swallow, and if im being real I'm not sure if ill actually play it much especially when I already have MK8DX with online and all that. So right now I'm on the fence with it.

Yep, already preordered it for my younger brother as a belated birthday present, he's super excited.
While I bought it as a gift i am actually quite looking forward to trying it out for myself.
I love clever, creative stuff like this.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I'm not but damn, it looks great. It's a simple but engaging use of AR.



No. I'm tempted to buy this kind of stuff because of the novelty and creativity, but it's something that would sit in a closet. Maybe a few years from now when my nieces are older or further down the line if I have kids of my own I'll buy it for them but really for me.



Nope, setup seems like a hassle to drive around real life settings. I did find the drive assist curious as it could help quite a bit.
A MK9 game, that would have been a sure buy.

The game reminds me of the Anki Overdrive from a few years back. I think the company is gone now.

Another video game to toy conversion was done by Hot Wheels... nothing beats the actual game.

Like with Ring Fit Adventure, a forum full of "hardcore" gamers like us really isn't the game's target audience, so a poll here won't give an accurate cross section of its market appeal.

The business model of these RC toys isn't as lucrative as you might think.
As I mentioned before the Anki company had to close down after their successful launches.

Ring Fit Adventure is an interactive workout video that has been successful in the past, fitness sells.

Maybe the Mario name can pull a one-off miracle, but I would not expect a continued effort in this respect. These toys are a niche market due to their elevated costs; and do not really add anything wrt to the video game they simulate irl, rather they take away.

No. Way too expensive for me.



No. I love all things Mario Kart, but this one is a bit too pricey for what it is.



100% no.
