To quote: Greetings, and welcome to the next exciting installment of Split/Second. I'm happy to say we've managed to cram all of what made Split/Second great onto the PSP.
At Disney Interactive Studios, we're really proud of what Black Rock Studio created and were excited to see what Sumo Digital could add to the PSP version.
As Split/Second was a visual treat, we knew that we couldn't compromise for both the size of the power plays and sheer on-screen excitement. We set out to create a spectacular-looking PSP game and I hope that everyone will agree that this is one of the best-looking racing games on the PSP.
Another vital ingredient was to make sure that the handling and controls suited the PSP. Sumo are very experienced with years of racing experience and so set about creating a new driving model from scratch.

I'm back with two videos for you. First is the ModNation Racers launch trailer that shows what we feel is the core of the game: Racing and Creating wherever you are.

As you saw in the last video, we have some of the best programmers and artists in the industry and in this follow-up you can see how the entire team comes together, whether at 10am or 4am, to ship a killer game. Working side by side with us is our QA group.
You met several testers and management in the last vid, and here you will see how integral this talented, dedicated group is.
This game has been an amazing journey and we are all very proud to be part of the ModNation family. Keep an eye out for some of the names you see in these videos while racing and throughout the community.
155w ago - SCEA San Diego Studio Producer Vernon Mollette has shared a video today on the PlayStation Blog showcasing the behind-the-scenes launch of ModNation Racers for Sony's PSP.
To quote: We've talked at length about the over-the-top kart racing action, as well as the revolutionary Creation Studio tools that let you design Mods, Karts, and Tracks on the fly before you Share them with the world!
What we haven't talked about yet is price. You can get all of this amazing content for a low price of $29.99, whether you prefer to buy it on UMD or digitally through the PlayStation Store.
With over 25 tracks, a PSP-version exclusive Last Kart Standing Mode, and virtually endless user-generated content, this really is an incredible purchase for the long summer days.
Speaking of long days...just how hard have we been working? Well I kind of touched on that in my previous post, when I mentioned a Behind-the-Scenes video that was coming.
It's here now to watch, and watching it myself I am reminded of all the fun we had making ModNation Racers as well as all that hard work. Throughout the video you'll see some of our daily meetings, trips to QA, and nearly every person focused on making the game all that it is today!
