149w 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.

235w ago - MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's Game Director Nigel Kershaw shared the following tips today via PS Blog:
To get those elusive gold medals in the speed races on MotorStorm: Pacific Rift can be somewhat frustrating, with the time ticking down, and every millisecond doing the wrong thing might mean the difference between gold and silver.
First thing to remember - getting gold on these, especially later in the game, is supposed to be hard. However none of them are impossible...I've completed them all myself with a good few seconds to spare, and I'm not that good at the game.
Second point is to expect the unexpected. Some of the speed races follow pretty standard track loops, while others mess with your head by gallivanting all over the tracks in strange directions. If it's your first time in a particular speed race, don't just sail through a gate expecting to be lined up perfectly for the next one. Be cautious and pay attention.
Third point is practice. Unless you're some kind of god, you're not going to get these babies the first time out, especially on the later levels. Give them a test run first, and learn where those illusive gates are.
