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.

There's a Hummer H1 in Forza Horizon 2, and these 99 other cars

I hate Hummers so much. Only in America would a car that stupid get that popular. Of course, Forza Horizon 2 has the H1, the actual Humvee-looking one that isn't any less stupid for civilian driving, but at least it doesn't look like a gangly, overgrown Power Wheels like the popular H2 you still see out and about sometimes. The first 100 cars are listed here.more

Next week's PC beta for The Crew sounds fairly big

Ubisoft's closed PC beta for The Crew will begin a couple days earlier than previously announced. It's now set to take place from July 21 - 25. What's going to be playable, exactly? A decent amount, considering The Crew's ma...more
