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!

Add Your Own

I cry foul – there’s no way Kevin Butler lost that race legitimately. VP of Losing to Boss to Keep Job!

If his mod will appear on ArtistSpotlight1, then here’s hoping the other artist spotlight creations will, too (like Empire City!)

i’m surprised the graphics in this game aren’t as good as i hoped it would be.
i highly doubt this game will sell as well as LBP did
no matter how much DLC you throw at it
funny to see Kevin vs Jack

Will they have KB custom character available to download in the game? Should be free for all. :) And should make the half man/horse kart.

A) This was great and again another great promo for the game.
B) Man Furismo Jive sounds great. Can’t wait.
C) All of the Kevin Butler ads need to get put on the PSN. I love watching these.
D) Need E3 hosted by Tretton and Butler!!!

This is the best video on the Internet today.

I grinned when I saw Jack Tretton. It’s confirmed, these two are compatible, put them on stage at E3!

Man, I love these ads. Jack Tretton also charismatic as usual, he’s been a great speaker at Sony’s past E3 conferences.

“Half-Man, Half-Horse… Half-Motorcycle… ALL awesome. Lol… sounds like something Will Ferrell or somebody would say. Hilarious! I really love the amount of support this game is getting as well. It might not be getting as much exposure -yet- on the tv, but it IS getting a lot of great videos, artistic support, as well as support from numerous companies run by Sony. Idky they waited until just now with this game to give it that much support, but I think they are starting to catch on.

Keep up the great work guys and can’t wait to get my hands on this game!!

Hell of a way to start my day! Kevin AND Jack? Ahhh…that was marketing bliss right there!

Gunwing said:

See this is what games are all about for the noobies. It’s not about wining, it’s about having a pure blast with buddies online, tossing about a bit of users frendly smack talk. And expressing your self in new ways.

The most epic victory would have been if Kevin Butler was losing and then he handed the pad to Kazunori Yamauchi that would have blasted Jackie T.
That and the world would have asploded.

LOL, I cant believe they had Jack Tretton in the ad, now that’s what I call fan service…. A message personally delivered by the CEO and the funniest man in the business history. LOVE IT!!

Can someone tell me who created this marketing campaign with Kevin Butler because him/her/they as well as Kevin himself deserve the entire The One Show advertising award book to be devoted entirely to them. lol It’s pure genius.
