In the interest of helping more people, it still showed 29.99 for me too. I tried IE 64 bit browser, and it worked just fine. try that if you are having problems.


Worked on Internet Explorer. Got one, thanks OP and Deathblade2!

I'm in for one. I'm gonna try to play it for a day at work and trade it in the next day. I heard it has some pretty bad frame issues but for getting 11$ to just play it sounds nice. Doesn't hurt to try. I just hope people don't flip it immediately, at least wait a day for me to try it first :D

I heard the loading times for ModNation Racers are horrible. Can anybody who owns the game vouch for that?

It's 30-40 seconds to get the game going after picking a track. At least it's better than the PS3 version?

I believe it was for the PS3 version, but I could be wrong. For $11.99, Ill take a chance.

Gahhh I don't think I could deal with that, even at $12. I guess I'm not gonna get it then. Thanks!

Yea, the loads times between tracks are terrible. Up to a full minute. The initial game loading time depends on how much content you have downloaded. It took an entire 20(!) minutes to load for me one time. Deleting content fixed it.

this deal came at the perfect time. Getting a Vita Sunday at Best Buy with Mortal Kombat and Ult Marvel Vs Capcom 3. Wanted this game too despite the crap load times. And had a $10 rewardszone certificate so got this for 1.99. :)

Cant decide whether i want to get it or not, the PS3 version was decent, but it felt like Online was what really made it shine. Plus, i hate games with Ad-Hoc only trophies <_<.

My first thought was "WOW that's a great deal on Modnation Racers!" then I realized there are better ways to waste my time. Like not playing a dead racing series with no online play...

try using a different web browser. i usually use chrome but it wouldn't bring up the sale price, so i pulled it up on Internet Explorer and it worked.

Might as well wait for Sony to announce LBP Kart Racing for Vita.

Weird thing, it appears as 11.99 only on my phone, but in the cart it appears at 29.99

Has anyone ordered it with it at 11.99?

Yeah I figured it wouldn't be as good as Mario Kart, but no multiplayer?

Damn.

What were they thinking?


They don't exactly have the best track record with portable multiplayer. The psp version had multiplayer but no friends list. My friend and I each bought it specifically for the multiplayer and were kind of ticked when we found out we couldn't play together.

FWIW, regarding pricing, I've been going through some of the items from BB's Grads and Dads sale which is supposed to be in effect today (Friday), and none of the items are showing up at the advertised prices - so looks like there's a pricing issue broader than the VG DOTD.

Time to Turn On The Fun, BB. No, really. Turn it on. Thank you.
