ModNation Racers Artist Spotlight: Kevin Butler…’Nuff said

Chuck Lacson's Avatar + Posted by Chuck Lacson on May 17, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Merry ModNation Monday Everyone!

This week the Spotlight hits the one and only Kevin Butler. You know a lot of things about our VP of …well…. EVERYTHING, but did you know he had an artsy side? It was news to everyone in the office too. (And all that time I thought he was taking notes.) Watch as Kevin get himself “Modified”, see his particular approach to Track Creation, and wait to see a showdown of EPIC proportions at the end. It’s the stuff of legend.

Like Kevin‘s Creations? Download them starting May 25th once your get your full copy of ModNation Racers (PS3).

Just search under PSN ID: ArtistSpotlight1

Don’t forget the ModNation PS3 Demo hits PSN tomorrow so I hope your engines are revved up!

I’ll leave you with my favorite screen shot to date-

Ok, Now you’ve done it. Here I am, saving money to furnish up a new apartment come June 1st. Much as I want this game, I figured I could put off buying ModNation Racers for another week or two.

But not now. Now I’m going to book an extra DJ gig on the side just to buy this at launch. Because I can no longer wait that extra week or two.

Kevin Butler, I hereby nominate you as “VP OF BEING AWESOME ENOUGH TO MAKE ME DO MORE WORK.”

Darn you.

+ loucetios on May 17th, 2010 at 6:40 am said:

Can we get a jack/kevin butler combo for E3? I think it’d be great to have them both on stage at the same time presenting stuff, but for sure kevin butler needs to be there


32

+ JeeVeSs on May 17th, 2010 at 6:43 am said:

@Atari4Ever It`s Man Furismo Jive. And yes I can`t wait either.

You guys have no idea how much gold you’ve struck up with Kevin Butler.

“Too much hair-gel says what!?”

LOL, that just put me over the edge. Man, I’d rate this video somewhere between epic and BOOM. =)

+ Volcan-Raven on May 17th, 2010 at 7:07 am said:

Hes funny for 30 seconds TV ads but not much for long sessions, cant see him beign funny for 2 full hours at E3 unless he has an well written script. Would love cameo appearance at E3 by him but nothing else.
