As the BETA begins, you'll start in what is called the ModSpot. This is basically the central hub for the game, from where you can access all the other content the game provides. Similar to the hub of LittleBigPlanet, however this brings together a number of other players from around the world. You can interact with them how you please, searching their profiles for statistics or created content, chatting in the group chat in the left of the screen or simply ramming your kart into theirs. You're also likely to take part in an unspecified game of King of the Hill as people try to fling their kart atop the central pedestal and knock those that are already there. It's a fun way to while away the time as you wait for a friend to turn up online.
