Remember this game announced last year? It was supposed to be a free avatar base kart game. It has sort of just disappeared off the face of the planet.  Anyone have any word on what happened to this thing? I was looking forward to it at the time since the 360 could use a good kart racer.

Well the 360 does have the best version of Sega All Stars Racing, which is actually quite good :)
But yeah, I was somewhat looking forward to this.  Has the potiential to be really good and it finally gives the Avatars some more use, outside of 1 vs 100. 

I assume it's just still in development..  perhaps we'll see some mention of it tonight at the X10 event.

@Yukoei: It had a Beta. It's still coming out.
 
 
But, I do think that Joy Ride is still coming out, it just didn't have enough of a splash at E3 to garner enough attention.

Microsoft is scared of black avatars doing hoodrat things with their friends.
