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-

The jokes were a little meh this time, but the Kevin Jack combo was AWESOME… Some wicked one liners in there too!

    Pre-Order is the way to go if you want some of those cool items. Check with your local store or website to confirm the Canadian offerings.

Kevin Butler is hilarious. I’ll be attending E3 and if I can just get a pic with KB, it’ll be worth it. Marketing for sony over the past 16 months = awesome.

Sony can have a ton of exclusive announcements ,a massive price cut and hand out 100 dollar bills at its E3 press conference but if there is no Kevin Butler than E3 for Sony equals epic fail.
Make it happen Jack Trenton!!
