The Vita's ModNation Racers Is Now ModNation Racers: Road Trip

Sony's been making a big deal out of ModNation Racers on their upcoming handheld, the Vita. I still shudder to think about the 10 minute stretch of their E3 press conference when (very nice, I should say) ModNation guys came onstage to demonstrate how to build a track and customise things in the game. I just wanted to fall asleep/watch Jane's Addiction already!

Anyhow, according to the PlayStation Blog, the Vita game has been rechristened Modnation Racers: Road Trip. Which seems fitting. Rejected fan-suggested names include "In-A-Gotta-Mod-Vita," "Honey I Shrunk the ModNation Racers," and "Steve." I think I like "Steve" the best of all of those.

Hmm, another of the top five suggestions is "ModNation racers: Purple Monkey Dishwasher." What makes me think that they only got five suggestions to begin with?

    This annoyed me. One of the best PS2 games was Road Trip.

      That was an awesome game! I spent so much of my time playing that.

      Does this even have any road trip-like aspects?

        Pretty sure the name 'ModNation Racers: Road Trip' is only referring to the fact that it's portable.
