ModNation Racers Artist Spotlight: Kevin Butler…’Nuff said

Chuck Lacson's Avatar Posted by

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-


A Family that Races together, Stays Together

Only 7 DAYS left to pre-order folks!

Have a great week everyone, more goodies to come right here on the PS.Blog!

KB vs Jackie T? Talk about epic.

And lol @ “too much hair gel says what”.

This was one funny video. I cant wait for my copy of MNR!

By the way, I wonder if they will add me to PSN (artistspotlight1)

II-KiLLER-ll said:

May 17th, 6:34 am

Awesome :P, Can’t wait for demo, By the way how comes UK has to wait till Wednesday for store update? Isn’t it ment to be Tuesday’s.


May 17th, 6:40 am

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.

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

JeeVeSs said:

May 17th, 6:43 am

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

Crimson_Ryan said:

May 17th, 6:47 am

This. Is. Epic.

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

NJShadow said:

May 17th, 6:47 am

“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. =)

Parapraxis said:

May 17th, 6:49 am

that’s the biggest you’re gonna get methinks.

rjejr said:

May 17th, 6:52 am

Nevermind, 1280 x 720 will do. (blurry, but will make the game look that much better)

MoneyMaker110 said:

gus_xl said:

jaimus said:

May 17th, 6:57 am

“Man Forismo Jive” – It is like the Duke Nukem Forever of car racing games!

jimmyfoxhound said:

nice one Kevin you are a genuine legend keep up with the awesome adverts dude. Also please can you bring ure ‘epicness’ over to Europe and for my final peice. Please be the spokesperson of Sony’s E3 Press Conference this year, as it would be A-wesome!

NewYork214 said:

May 17th, 7:02 am

This was the best KB clip yet. Jack Tretton trash talking Kevin butler was hilarious.

Lirion said:

May 17th, 7:02 am

Kevin Butler needs to appear on stage at the E3 conference!

Fabolous1earth said:

May 17th, 7:03 am

Wow that was amazing and hilarious at the same time; i didn’t even think Jack Tretton was gonna show up at all lol

Volcan-Raven said:

May 17th, 7:07 am

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.
