GRID Autosport Boost Pack Released, Because "It Sells"

Steam now offers a GRID Autosport Boost Pack, a $2.99 upgrade that speeds progression through the racing game. Word is: "Download the Boost Pack and accelerate your GRID Autosport progression in career mode and online. Gain a boost of approximately 50% more XP in career mode and around 50% more XP, Vehicle XP and in-game Cash when you race online." A NeoGAF forum post purportedly from a Codemasters community manager reacts to the hue and cry over the cynicism this represents with refreshing honesty. "Regarding the boost pack we did similar with GRID 2 as a car unlock, we got a bit of flak from that but in all honesty and without any PR bull sh*t...it sells. There is a silent subset of players that do like that sort of content but whether or not it's here to stay is something the industry is yet to work out," reads part of the comment. "I can't really say anything else, the only response I have for you is the total truth. I don't want to spin it or anything like that. I'll probably regret this post in the morning, but hey-ho :)" The same post also responds to the accusation that Codemasters intentionally made the game a grind to sell these boosters: "Under no circumstances did we make the game a grind on purpose (that much I can promise you), in the grand scheme of things it's still relatively easy to progress via single player and online it's not that difficult to earn money." Thanks Videogamer.

To the guy mentioning Codemasters is known for selling cheats....

If only you REALLY knew how much this is true!!!

As apparently you are too young to remember the Game Genie. This is what made Codemasters famous.

It wasn't making games that Codemasters originally made their money from it was an amazing way to cheat in almost ANY original NES game. They released codebooks every month with new cheats that would really work.

The damned thing was literally a piece of hardware that fit into the NES system that you put games into.

It was well worth the money.
