SO MUCH DLC, SO LITTLE TIME?
We will offer you a few solutions.
ModNation Racers PS Vita: Modding with your Fingertips
As most of you heard at the Sony Press Conference kicking off E3, we are proudly bringing the ModNation franchise to the much anticipated PlayStation Vita. It was a great opportunity to share with you all some of the things our team has in store. Take a look at this video… click here
Progressive ModNation Racers Gran Prix Results
In early March we announced a contest to create the best ModNation Racers track using a free parts pack sponsored by Progressive Insurance. This parts pack followed on the heels of the free Flo mod and Progressive vehicle downloads.
Well, the entries are all in, and our judges have been playing the top levels…as chosen by the community… to determine our finalists. They’ve made a final decision based upon originality, quality/polish, brand awareness and creative use of the items. Our official Progressive ModNation Racers Gran Prix winners are:
Grand Prize: Progressive_Mega_Plex
Runners-up: Pro_Flo_Ivory Park Plaza (IndustrialSavior)
New Name: Ivory Park Plaza Station
Pro_Flo_Skyline Scramble (ArgorokX)
Pro_Flo_Silver Ocean Park (IndustrialSavior)
New Name: Sliver Oceanside Heights
There were several tracks which used the Progressive items in clever ways, and there were several tracks which were fun to drive, but Mega Plex provided an exceptional mix of both—showcasing the best features of ModNation Racers as well as positively representing the Progressive brand.
If you haven’t checked out these tracks for yourself, sign into ModNation Racers and search for the track name or author. We think you’ll be just as impressed as we were.
Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone who entered!
NEW ModNation DLC: “Where Will I Find The Time?”
In light of the recent bevy of new MNR DLC we brought in an expert in time management to offer you some help. Here are a few of their suggestions to get your DLC on.
1. You could call in sick to work (we don’t recommended)
2. A weekend of soda and energy drinks?
3. Take advantage of a 3 day weekend celebrating a holiday (July 4th in U.S.)
4. Pray for a freak snowstorm ONLY in your neighborhood
5. Ditch jury duty (not recommended)
6. Graduate a semester late (it’s probably going to happen anyway)
Hmmmmmm…that’s the best they could give us? Consultants, go figure.

We will spotlight some of the games achievements as well as its unique
insanity personality This is week three of our anniversary celebration which brings us to the Mod creators of MNR. Many of the Mods floating around in the ModNation ubersphere are pure genius. Some are weird, some are a little strange, and to be honest some of them just flat out frighten us in soooooo many ways we just can’t begin to tell you.
