Codemaster will end online play for GRID for PS3 and PC. It's always a sad day when online ends for a good game. For some reason the Xbox 360 online play will live on. For now.

"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," Codemasters says in their forums.

"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 apologize to those affected by the end of this service."

Naturally, some dudes on the Codemasters forums are pissed off.
