Hello everyone!

Ramone Russell here, Community Manager for ModNation Racers and avid kart racer.


One of my Mods I call 5-0

Everyone at United Front Games and SCEA are extremely exited to finally put the game in your hands. I’m here to give everyone a quick peek into some of the features and content available in the ModNation Racers PS3 public beta.

In short we are giving you the ability to race, share, download, remix, rate, and most importantly create. Everyone with a beta code will have our state of the art creation tools at your finger tips. We’re absolutely stoked to see the Tracks, Mods, and Karts the beta community will create.

The public beta will include three tracks from the full game Farm Frenzy, Market Run and Sandstorm. There are a couple of race options included in the beta as well. In addition to playing online with up to 12 players, you can compete for the best lap times in Time Trial.

ModNation Racers Beta -Farm Frenzy

It’s home on the firing range here on Farm Frenzy. Drift and shortcut your way through these meadows, but look out for the sheep! Especially if you dare to take the jump off the barn roof.

ModNation Racers Beta - Market Run ModNation Racers Beta - Sand Storm

The desert oasis in Market Run (left) looks calm from the outside, but the action inside is anything but. Crash through the crowded alleys to max out your weapons and pull out 720-spins on the big wall jump to build up your boost. In Sand Storm (right) Deep in the heart of the desert, this off-road race winds through rolling dunes and treacherous cliffs. Try not to break a sweat as you explore the many paths through the buried ruins.

The next area of the game included in the beta I would like to talk about is the ModSpot. What’s the ModSpot you ask? It’s the central hub area in ModNation Racers you load into once you download the beta. Everything takes place in the ModSpot. It’s where you can meet up with your friends or make some new ones. You can also view, rate, and download the top rated Mods, Karts, and Tracks as well. Lastly it’s where you launch into the Creation Station where you can create your own Mods, Karts and Tracks.

Remember, in North America the ModNation Racers Public Beta will run from today, December 18, through January 10 for everyone who was lucky enough to procure a beta voucher. If you already have a voucher (Did you pick up LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition?), fire up your PS3 and redeem your code on the PlayStation Store to get in on the action. If you don’t have one, you’re in luck – the PlayStation.Blog is giving away a few hundred today! Keep your eyes peeled to the PlayStation Twitter feed and Facebook Page today for details (If you’re unlucky today, even more Beta vouchers will be given away on Monday!).


My favorite mod so far what or who will you create?

Before I go, we want to let everyone know we need your help. To make ModNation Racers the best kart racing game possible, we want to hear from you. Things you like, things you don’t like, concerns, suggestions, bugs you find, and feedback, we want to hear it all.

To share your thoughts with the ModNation Racers, go to, login to your PSN account and then click the “BETA” link located in the top right corner under your name.

See you in the ModSpot!

Sweet Russell.

I was messing around with it a bit late last night. This game has TONS of potential to be the next big thing ala’ LBP. Was a lot of fun.

Now please get us some nice new info (ie Fact Sheet) over on Operation Sports, please!

AceNet2 said:

Hope I get one!

BTW, enough with the Facebook and Twitter nonsense. It’s silly. Nobody over 17 gives a rats a$$ about those fads. If you’re gonna give codes away do it here. Or in Home, that might get a couple people in there. Ya think?

jwr718 said:

December 18th, 12:04 pm

Actually I’ve seen a lot of people fans of the PS3 Facebook page… Like me… who are over 21 even.

It’s a real hustle to get on thought because they just post 10 codes and it’s the first to redeem them gets in. I got MAG from it!

SEVENTY7 said:

Hi Ramone,

I have Core and I haven’t gotten my code yet. Will I be getting it today? I had the same problem with my MAG code from Core.

dammit. I have class today and that most likely when the beta codes will be given away.
Can I get a code for buying 39 PS3 game this year alone and over 95 over the past three years please? I purchase all the PS3 exclusive games that came out this year with the exception of MLB The Show because I hate baseball.

I’m not sure why I didn’t get my beta code. I registered before the 3rd, and all I got was a theme code. Little help, please?!?

rickelchilango said:

December 18th, 12:29 pm

I saw the email with my beta voucher number on it this morning before coming to work, so I turned on my PS3 and left it downloading (gotta love the auto shut-off feature).. :) Can’t wait to give it a try.. Thanks for the code!
