GRID Off the Grid

Codemasters announces the shutdown the multiplayer servers for the Windows and PlayStation 3 editions of GRID, just three years after the release of the latest installment in the Race Drivers series of racing games (thanks MCV), though Xbox LIVE play is unaffected. This has lead to outcry on the game's forums as well as calls for boycotts of other Codies games from unhappy fans. Here's word:
After three years of service, 2008’s Race Driver: GRID's online play service has been discontinued for the PS3 and PC editions of the game. This follows the decision by a third party provider to decline the offer of an extended contract to continue online play on these platforms. Race Driver: GRID for Xbox 360 is not affected. We thank fans for their support and apologise to those affected by the end of this service.

They want you to buy F1 2011,...duh.

I liked GRID,...kinda like an updated Test Drive..

Been a while since I've installed it,..but if it has no IP to IP
multi-player,..then this is just stupid.

rFactor has been going for ages,..all that's required is a simple matchmaker...

When Nascar 2003 died off,..and they took our matchmaker with it,..we still had the ability to host....you just had to know an IP.

Which brings me back to my stance,....if I can't host it,I don't want it....and IMHO,..FPS games are not in this rant,...race games are because they are never popular enough to hear the devs and publishers,..and they are always wanting to you to buy the same game next year with updated cars and drivers....like the Madden model.
