A developer chat has revealed the seemingly unthinkable: the game will not have online head-to-head racing.
That's weird. I was at a preview event and I specifically ASKED one of the reps, "Will you be able to play your Vita online with people on the PS3 online?" and was told "yes." If somehow that feature doesn't make it in, I just...don't see this game getting much of a following, I feel like that is one of its primary strengths.
Bwahahahaha! lol they're really dumb, it's really... so MNR the franchise that is focused on online gaming and sharing stuff online doesn't have online multiplayer for Vita? why bother making it? you would think that SCE was going to push online in its new device but no, they really want Vita to Fail...
Delay the game. You cannot ship a game that is built on online not have online play for no good reason. Wipeout is already there at launch and Ridge Racer. Delay the game and add in online play or no one with sense will buy the game.
I'll have to stick to my current PSP version then
No buy for me. This is the worse announcement concerning this game they could do. Kudos guys. How did they manage to get to that idea ? Sony is selling Vita wifi and 3G and this game doesn't support online races, come on that's a joke !! I was really looking for this game, but now thay made it so bad i just don't want to hear from it anymore.
Yeah, theres no point, unless you like making maps for you to race on by yourself.
Perhaps they don't want to sell it. If it was their goal, they found the easiest way to achieve it. So awkward.
Someone should make a YouTube trailer for this game, and put that "Dancing With Myself" song over it. "If I had the chance, I'd ask the world to dance, but I'm dancin' with myse-e-e-lf~"
This was my 2nd launch game ( uncharted being 1st - it's a must buy!! ) but not anymore! The whole point of modnation is to make and upload tracks and then for people to have races online on them! I will probably get FIFA or gravity daze instead!
lol what a joke
I guess I'll stick to Mario Kart 7 for online kart racing. :-(
i'll get it anyway, i like racing in general and making maps and stuff looks cool..its sucks it not supporting online but to me racing games for me is about the story or in this case offline content and i see online as a added feature on racing games the only games that is a must-have-online for me is CoD because the single player in cod isnt that great and its not really much to do on it after 4-6 hours xD
Wow this is just stupid. If a game like Wipeout has online multiplayer why can't modnation racer? A lot of people will not buy the game because of this. XperiaRay
That's a disappointment. My first games were going to be Uncharted and MNR. I'll probably go with Rayman: Origins instead now. I don't see why they would leave out MP on a kart racing game that is being touted as a marquee launch title.
I have the psp version, from the free games offered that during the Sony apology for the PSN hack job. I never had a chance to play it. Is it any good?
That's just fail... ~_~
Yeah, I mean wasn't the whole point of the game to create your own tracks and have people race on them online? O.o
@zerocrossing Exactly, now our only choice is to adhoc? Who ever decided on doing this just killed the game. I mean seriously this game is screaming for online play not just sharing maps.
Well this really just kills the franchise original appeal. I honestly can't see myself getting the game because of this, and that seems to be the majority view. Maybe they're planning online as some kind DLC? lol.
with Ad-hoc party it shouldnt matter.. that or xlink
