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!

I agree with the earlier post, kevin butler should do a kung fu live commercial, put MS’s stupid natal in its place!

Yeah, I thought it was pretty weird too. It might be because it was a Canadian Best Buy. Oh well, got the game preordered at EB earlier today. Can’t wait until next week!

I know that someone has probably already said this, but Kevin Butler and Jack Trenton need to host the E3 press confrence together, when I’m in the shrine auditorium and they announce Killozne 3, Resistance 2, a suprise ps3 exclusive, info on the ps3 exclusive agent, and the graphics on all of them are amazing,I want these two to be announcing that. Both of these guys are my role models,and E3 with these two at the helm would be a dream!

Thanks Chuck for answering people’s comment. I wish other people at Sony would do this, like during the Firmware 3.21 fiasco.

I’m also grateful that Australia gets all 3 characters with a pre-order. (Not sure about Sackboy or mystery pack though).
