ModNation Racers Beta Burns Vinyl Next WeekS

United Front Games is kicking off the beta test for the PlayStation 3's urban vinyl kart game ModNation Racers next week, opening up a whole new level of play-create-share goodness to a select few. How can you get in?

Players who picked up early copies of the LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition already know how to get into the ModNation Racers beta test, kicking off on December 18th and running through January 10th. They should have received a voucher to enter inside the LBP box. I'd dare say there are still boxes out there with the voucher inside, but be sure to check used game cases at your local retailer before plunking down cash on a new copy. Odds are good that someone traded back in a copy without removing the voucher, so nose around a bit first.

Alternatively, you could stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog over the course of the next week and a half, where there will be a beta giveaway event going on. Winning entry is probably a bit easier on the pride than digging through used game boxes. I just find pride terribly overrated.
