ModNation Racers European Beta: Good News & Bad News

There is some good news and some bad news. Let's start with the good news. The ModNation Racers beta is now available to the first 100,000 people to download it from the PlayStation store. Now that the North American beta period has ended, gamers in Europe can finally get their hands on United Front's creative kart racing title. These users will have access to everything that was available in the previous beta, as well as two additional developer designed tracks exclusive to Europe. Now, prepare yourselves, here comes the bad news.

right i wanna race, so i goto quick race, and im only allowed time trial??? i try to go online... it just searches for a few seconds then the world stays red ( which i assume means it failed)... however that track creater is pure genuis!! i could sit there all day just making tracks lol, i loved it! you really feel in control, but if you fancy being lazy you can just randomise everything, pretty cool stuff, endless karting fun.

Yeah, I had some trouble connecting to online races at first too. The North American beta was the same way, give the servers time to catch up. The beta blew away all my expectations, I can only imagine how sweet the full game will be.

is it gone??? i dont see it...

FACTUAL evidence3193d ago

i got the beta earlier from the EU store. lol

"is it gone??? i dont see it... "

Then this means one of two things:

1 - you're not signed in with a European account
2 - you were too late and 100,000 other people got there first

I think the carts need to be slowed down, they are awful to control.

FamilyGuy3192d ago

I can't believe I'm so excited about a game like this. I'm 24 and it's friggin cart racing! Segas whatevermacallit is going to end up flopping solely because of the anticipation for this *fully customizable* cart racer.

I love creativity

the track creator is great!!!!!

Bubbles_Kitty_Cat3192d ago

I was in the first beta and thought it was pretty fun, but I was shocked to hear that this is going to be a full priced game.
I had assumed that it was going to be a downloadable PSN game for $20 or $30.

I just can't see a lot of people paying $60 for it.

it is good but the framerate is all over the place.

swiftshot933193d ago

you'll notice the loading is a problem too, I have hope though.

claybacca3192d ago

I'd be surprised if the load times and framerate weren't optimized for the final release. These kinds of issues are to be expected in an unfinished game.

thehitman3193d ago

Always complain about content wipe in a BETA! Its for TESTING purposes only..... I never once seen a beta where someone didnt ask or complain about if their stats etc are getting wiped.

Bordel_19003193d ago

Beta is really good except for framerate and bad load times.

ModNation is shaping up to be something special, I hope they can iron out the load times and the framerate issues.

The 360 is stuck with garbage racing games like Flopza 3 as well as Sonic & Sega All-Flops Racing with Banjo-Kafloppy.
