'ModNation Racers' (PSP) To Feature PS3 Interconnectivity

by Rainier on April 22, 2010 @ 4:44 a.m. PDT

ModNation Racers is a thoroughly fresh take on classic kart racing that empowers the player to personalize their entire game. Players can express themselves by creating their own Mod character, styling their own racing kart and even building -- in just minutes -- an imaginative track that can be shared with the rest of the PlayStation community.

With an engine borrowed from WipEout, six player online racing and plenty of freedom to customize, ModNation Racers PSP is already enticing players. At a Sony PSP demo event in San Francisco last night, producer Vernon Mollette revealed one more tidbit – limited interconnectivity between the PSP and PS3 versions of the game.

"We're kind of keeping that under wraps at this point, as far as interconnectivity," said Mollette. "But I guess I could say don't be surprised if you log in with your PS3 and then you log in with your PSP if you have a couple of new toys to play with when you fire up your PSP next.

Other additions to the PSP version of the game include PSP-specific weapons and abilities. For more details on the game don't miss our full interview with Mollette and be sure to check back (next week?) when we get our hands dirty with a beta version of the PSP game.
