172w ago - Community Manager Ramone Russell of SCEA San Diego Studios has shared some ModNation Racers PS3 artist secrets to become a Super Creator today, as follows:
We're happy to introduce Myles Gordon our first ModNation "Super Creator!" Myles specializes in making unique-looking and technically sound tracks.
Game Informer's August issue features a piece on Mr. Gordon and the amazing tracks he's created. Our focus on Myles starts with some of his tracks and a short Q&A.
Here is an overview of some of the highlight tracks among the Tours. There are eight Tours total with four tracks each. To find them just do a text search under tracks for "P Tour", "M Tour", "G Tour", "O Tour", "N Tour", "R Tour", "Q Tour" or "W Tour."
Track Name: M Tour 3: Aquatica
MylesG says: "Water and fire mix in this ocean-based Stunt Park. Aquatica is all about big air, big stunts and big speed. Skilled racers will be able to maintain max boost throughout most of this course due to long drifts and huge air time."

174w ago - Producer Scott Nielsen has confirmed the ModNation Racers PS3 XP Races issues have been remedied, and provided some UFG insights today as follows:
Last week an issue was introduced with the release of Title Update 1.02 that affected XP Races and XP Series resulting in situations where players were unable to load into the respective XP Races.
This issue has been addressed in Title Update 1.03 which we are currently scheduled to release during our regular maintenance window tomorrow morning (Tuesday, August 10th).
I'd also like to take a moment to try and provide some insight into our game and hopefully some clarity surrounding the load times in ModNation Racers.
This is a subject that both our fans and the team are very sensitive about and we want to assure you that a lot of work has been done in order to address these issues. We have made some significant strides to improving the user experience in ModNation Racers with the release of the Title Update.
