Starhawk’s been out almost two weeks now and how long was MNR before it went digital? Longer than that I bet.

DLC sale= amazeballs!


I presume Europe will get the sale too?

Already have all the DLC but I can see a lot of E.U MNR fans not being happy if SCEE doesn’t offer the same discounts.

El_Pollo_CA said:

Plus discount? :)

If you don’t own a copy and you like a certain ‘karting’ experience from another vendor then this is a must buy!

Been a huge fan of MNR for a while now, shame it didn’t do as well as It really should have. Looking forward to LBP Karting.

For $15 I will be finally getting my digital copy for that 20 minute gap here and there for a quick race or 3. I also bought all the DLC apart from the parts, props and mini themes as I wasn’t into creating tracks as I was into mods and racing the original tracks online. I was secretly hoping (I am with LBP still) that a discounted bundle might be available at some point, any plans? Thanks Guy’s.

Not to mention most games on bluray could actually fit on a DVD :/
…so many games are such a waste of PS3’s capabilities.

Big thanks to Namco though – their Tekken Hybrid has that badass CGI Tekken movie (Blood Vengeance), Tekken Tag Tournament HD remake and TTT2 demo all on 1 single bluray disc. …now that’s now you do it :)

Perfect, I’m going to use all my money up on this DLC sale!!!

I’ll also keep my ayes peeled for the Stowaway Mod, I’d really like to get it and it’s kart… :)

Just one question…

The PS3 wallpapers that I downloaded from the FaceBook page aren’t very large and tend to get “pixelated”… are you planning on creating something bigger that would look better on Full HD displays?

I don’t need any of these free DLC, let the others grab like they want…. wait i’m europe *TA-DAAN
Anyway, glad the cards are turning pretty sweet.

And by the way, you know about the photo challenge thing that got lost? Well, there is this combo mod\kart thread that may interests.


SEND YOUR KIDS TO THE GRILL AND GET POPCORNS, CINEMA TIME (Best project so far) and well deserved track of the week, couldn’t choose better!

jwspiker said:

is the PSN version of this game any quicker with the loading time? I haven’t picked the game up on disk since the first week of release.

i would deeeply appreciate it if everyone downloaded my creations. i only need 17,000 xp for platinum!!! for the VITA

This is fabulous news! I have been wanting to try Modnation Racers and this is the perfect time to experience it.
Thank you~

Hooligantuan said:

May 21st, 4:41 pm

Hear that, I’ve been level 28 for months. I barely play, but I barely play in part because it’s hard to get into an online race and the XP is pretty lousy.

If only I’d made a Mario or Iron Man mod that first week. :D

Alyyse said:

May 21st, 4:42 pm

15 bucks! count me in.

massimodo said:

May 21st, 5:59 pm

$15? I’ll think about it, how big is the file size on this thing?

Light-and-magic said:

May 21st, 6:49 pm

So what are the odds of EU getting an even sale on THIS? I make it £9.48 for all of the career DLC in America, I’m guessing it’ll be £15/£5 each in EU

blazingkiel_94 said:

May 21st, 9:00 pm

PLEASE ANSWER ME. My Modnation Racers game for the PS3 is region 3. It sucks because I can’t download any DLCs from my US account. Now I’m planning on buying a region 1 modnation game so here’s the QUESTION:
Will my region 3 save file of modnation work on the region 1 game?

PS: Region 3 is for Asia so I made an Asian account but the thing is the ModNation DLCs there are not complete.

Hi mark

just to let u know i just got home from my 2 jobs which one of them is in gamestop (worked Midnight for Ghost Recon FS) just picked up 2 psn card to get some stuff which i bough Mutant blobs, Escape plan and Legend of dragoon! im left with 10 bucks! which i told u i was gonna get some MNR stuff but guess what? the career extensions which was the ones i was gonna buy are still at 9.99! :( still give me chance to think which 2 im buying since there’s no bundle which includes the 3 for 9.99? ;)

    The store updates today. They should be good to go!

ChrisHighwind said:

May 22nd, 6:48 am


Give it up, dude, if they were going to give us online, they would’ve done it by now.

Regardless, nice update! Kinda wish I could stop being lazy long enough to put some actual time and effort into a track :/

ChrisHighwind said:

May 22nd, 6:51 am

Also, what format does MNR:RT accept for tracing a picture in Draw Track mode? I want to try making some tracks using slot car racetracks, but I don’t know how to set the image to where the game can support it.

Now I’m just waiting for the DLC sale, tough I still need to get a PSN card or two, so it’s good to know that the sale is going to last a whole week…

Just one question.

What ever happened to the limited edition Froster Mod? Any plans of distributing it again like you are doing it with Stowaway?

Thanks for everything!

triedallthem said:

May 22nd, 11:47 am

This sucks! I’ve been here and on Facebook both days and I still missed the codes. Maybe I’ll get one eventually
It’s 2 bad u can’t/won’t just send us codes personally; that would be nice!

TigerLust said:

May 22nd, 4:07 pm

Thanks for finally putting the DLC’s on sale, I am going to grab the three tour/extension packs!

Out of curiosity, what would those codes you’ve been posting be redeemed for specifically? If you have one for the pirate mini-theme, send me a private message hehe

RoyalStallion said:

May 22nd, 8:13 pm

Can you start putting out the codes later in the day? I go to school so I can’t access facebook or the ps website. I would like a chance to get a code too. fb and ps website are blocked (I hate the school filter!!!!)

DarkOne_PR said:

May 22nd, 8:20 pm

ok thanks mark. Gonna buy far east and artic one! big city parts are awesome but they look almost the same so it can wait.

x0xave said:

May 23rd, 1:20 pm

Might as well get in ModNation Racers, put like 100+ Hours back in 2010, need to play again! Though it loads to slow, other than that I love the game! I need to make more of my tracks! I’ve done rough copies!

sporemanjake said:

May 24th, 6:55 am

i’ve tried the Stowaway codes 3 times and i’m not getting the kart or mod help me out here

appoh_jack said:

May 27th, 8:55 pm

I just picked up the download for ModNation Racer with a PlayStation Plus trial (included with my system) for the discounted price earlier today. I read some comments form a gaming site (Joystiq) that said I’ll have to pay full price after my trial expires in order to keep using the game. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
