ModNation Racers is headed to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation portable on May 25, Sony announced today. The game will feature the Play, Create and Share movement, made popular by Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet. Look for ModNation Racers to feature up to four-player split-screen go-kart-style racing.
Some of your favorite PlayStation characters are headed to the game, as well. Both Ratchet and Clank will make an appearance, along with Nathan Drake and Kratos. Of course, these characters are available for those who pre-order the game. If you pre-order the game from GameStop, you’ll land Kratos and his Kart of Chaos. Amazon pre-orders will give you Ratchet or Clank, while Best Buy is offering Nathan Drake and his Jungle Jeep.
Beyond that, all pre-orders will get a bonus mystery mod and kart package that includes a special mod and kart, plus accessories to help you make your own creation. Sony will reveal the four variations available in this mystery package on the PlayStation Blog.
Also, check out the game’s box art below.

sony has too many good games

THIS could turn into a Mario Kart with all of Sony's characters. Go on Sony and buy the franchise, then bring it home with every character.

I'm excited for this game. I think it has great potential for all ages. This is one my kids will love.

Cant wait:) User generated content means vast amount of creativity and hours of fun

Kratos looks really mad, as always. But he looks old. And Ratchet must have been like I better stay back

These characters should be right on the cover. The general public, people who don't check out websites like this and watch E3 and GDC have no idea what this title is. Need fans of other Playstation IPs to know their favorite characters are in this game.

Great point, but that's a little difficult when the sony characters are only bonuses for pre-order.

Is that date world wide or only for the US? And I hope they've changed the camera, because it looked quite poor from the beta videos. I can't stand games with bad cameras!

First day buy for sure! This will be a good year for the PS3.

SOLD! I will have to wait for the skins to come out on the PS store.

This renders my 4th top downloaded Clank in the EU BETA useless, i think i'll get Drakey though

@3 damn right
- 7:11am EDT - March 16th, 2010
Sony's on fire, period.

the beta was great fun but there was long load times, hope they're faster. cant afford to get this day one, gotta get GOW collection first.

This looks real good =D. Can't wait and if the trailers look anything but bad I will probably get it on day 1 if it's release is over a month apart from Gran Turismo 5.

Really looking forward to this game, the track editor will see some amazing track creations shared online, with this and gt5 on the horizon, ps3 owners have all their racing prayers answered.

About time for a release date. Have been waiting for a fun kart racer style game to pick up. Sadly, still need to wait May for it but I'll survive.
