ModNation… Let the celebrations begin!!!
We gave YOU the tools to Race, Create, and Share and you have made over 2 million creations and ModNation Racers has officially achieved Greatest Hits status! That means you can get your hands on a copy of ModNation Racers for only $29.99! Thank you and Congratulations! On top of this we have more great original DLC content releasing this year. Just take a look-
If you download and race one track a day, everyday, it would take you well over one full millennium to finish, and that’s including leap year days!
That’s [too] [mil-yuh n] [kree-ey-shuh nz] since our release in 2010! Did we mention over 2,000,000? We did? Good. We are just so excited around here that we can’t think of anything else..well other than-
ModNation Racers is Officially a Greatest Hit!
Now only $29.99 to access to over 2 MILLION CREATIONS. Not bad!
In celebration we are releasing ModNation Racers as an official PS3 “Greatest Hits” package! This week ModNation Racers for the PS3 will be available at your local retailer for only $29.99! In case you are snowed in or stuck on the couch, you’re in luck. This week, the game will also be available on the PSN store for the same price, and if you are a PSN+ member you will get a free trial of ModNation Racers. That should put us well on our way to 3 million!
Our Gift to You!
We didn’t know what to get for all of you, i.e. shirt sizes, color preferences, etc… so instead we have planned a ModNation-palooza like celebration starting in March. Look for some cool events and don’t think we forgot about great prizes. We didn’t. You’ll love ‘em. Check next week’s ModNation Monday for more details.
Shouting From The Rooftops…
We want even more creations! If you are interested in submitting your mod, kart or track for consideration as “Creation of the Week”, be sure to visit us on the official ModNation Community site and who knows?, you might see your hard work on the PlayStation ModNation Monday blog or in-game on the Hot Lap section of the Modspot.

This will give each of the winning tracks’ creators some much deserved exposure and possibly a lot more xp!
MODNATION CREATIONS OF THE WEEK:
SPOTLIGHT TRACK OF THE WEEK
Battle of Port Duisburg by prob_alex
prob_alex says: “This my most challenging track to date… many, many, many hours spent on it so I really hope u enjoy it. The final lap the track route completely changes and will probably catch a few people out but thats part of the fun”
Tecnoboy1 says: “Looks like a real battlefield, nice job”
Laidbackcat says: “totally epic .. another classic from wales”
atheistsw says: “Ah, that looks epic, the boat is immense”
Mark drools: “Lets put it this way, I looked up the definition of the word “epic” in the dictionary and that falls way, way short. prob_alex can create a track with UN-BE-LIEVE-ABLE structures (fly / drive over a battleship and more), but he doesn’t just rely on this. He somehow finds the time and talent to create a fun and unique track to go with it”. Do yourself a favor, drive this track. It comes with a money-back guarantee! If you don’t like it you’ll get 100% of your money back!… oh that’s right, tracks like this are free! GOTTA LOVE MNR!”
Honorable Mention: D.C. Drift! By atheistsw
atheistsw says: “Take a picturesque drive through the capitol city, marveling at the sights while staying one step ahead of the opposition. With plenty of opportunities for big air and huge drifts this is a track to suit novices and experts alike. Remember to wave to Obama as you drive-by.”
Mark: Bucket list. Washington D.C. Check.
Tracks of the Week
Monday: Battle of Port Duisburg by prob_alex
Tuesday: D.C. Drift by atheistsw

Mod Name: anti-love bug
Kart Name: Swan Ice Sculpture
TRACK CREATION TUTORIAL
Floating Islands by prob_alex
Mark (in a paranoid voice): “prob_alex, have you planted a listening device in my home? This weekend I was showing friends MNR (they looooved it) and to a person (including myself) exclaimed “how did they make those islands float!”. The next day I log on to the forums at work and I see a tutorial (want more) about just this same exact thing (goosebumps). prob_alex, you are my hero (and soon to be other’s hero after they see this!).”
Check this out: Island Tutorial
Wow…we’re not worthy!, we’re not worthy!
Let the mind-blowing creations begin!
On behalf of the ModNation Racers family at UFG, Sony and San Diego Studio, we are so appreciative and humbled by your enthusiasm and passion for this game we all love.
Our sincere thank you. You rock! (1..2..3.. big Nation hug!)
Well that’s it for this week. I’ve gotta start racing a bunch of tracks or I’m never going to get any “work” done.
Have a great week!
p.s. TWO MILLION!
