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

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

Keep this up guys, you’ve practically stole E3 already!

PS: About time Man Murismo Jive get’s done… was worried it had turned into a Duke Nukem Forever game!

    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.

Jetup said:

May 17th, 10:32 am

Is it just me, or couldn’t Kevin Butler and Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother been separated at birth?? I’m can imagine KB saying how his tracks are Legen——-wait for it—–dary!!

“Jacky T” and “KB” those should be dlc mods… But since we’re already getting the KB one how about Jack’s?

Fabulous video!! i have a dentist appt. tomorrow and am getting a tooth sliced outta my jaw and was really thinking it was going to be a crappy day, that is untill i seen that we were finally getting a demo for MNR. that alone should make tomorrow a most excellent day!!

going to have to agree w/ most people on here seeing KB @ E3 would be sweet.

    Chuck Lacson said:

    May 17th, 12:42 pm

    Name of the track or the creator. They are filtered in different ways too. More to come on that.

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!!

Nice vid, will his creations available on the PSP too ? At the same time, I ask you : Will the PSP game be available on the PSN store at the same time as the release next week ?

    The PSP version will be on PSN on the 25th as well.

    The Kevin Butler mod is only on the PS3, but there nothing stopping you from making your own version on PSP!

damn it was going to get this some time this summer, but after that awesome video i will re arrange some funds and try and get it the 1st week. I need a school book, but Mod Nation could be a better investment I mean who needs history in college anyways.
