BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCHES! What's the point in paying for something if you aren't guaranteed you'll be able to play it whenever you want? Stop pulling an EA.

Exactly. I was planning on picking this up for cheap. I heard that in the 2nd game it has the Hawaiian island from the first on the disc, too. Maybe that's why?
Blaze929  +   1532d ago
would hope so

im pretty sure it as an offline mode anyway, I remember playing this before I had a connection in my house.

What are you talking about paying for something you can't use, it's free to play this online. And even when they shut it down, there are still tons of activities to do in this game.

And to the other guy, how much cheaper did you want it to get? I was able to find a copy for $10 last year!

I really hate how TDU was overlooked, considering it was a good game. The problem with it was it was basically an updated version of the Ps2 game and the graphics didn't look as good as they could have. It only took up a little over 3 Gb's, which I was shocked at considering how big the island was.

I wanted to see how long it would take to make it around the entire world riding the coastline, and it took me over an hour in real time just to accomplish this! I expect part 2 to be something wonderful, and I hope they fix a few small issues I had with the game.

Why?
RyuDrinksTheDew  +   1532d ago
well, thats a dumb move.
Raptura  +   1532d ago
No game THIS generation should be pulled of online play. A previous generation game makes sense, but not this. :S
Independent_Charles  +   1532d ago
and because of this iv wiped TDU 2 of my radar. how do i know i wont be able to play it in 2 years time? this gen has sucked not in games but in business practices.

..lmao, MS LOVES consumers like you lol
MaximusPrime  +   1532d ago
well, i was a former TDU1 gamer. now my xbox 360 was sold, i havent played it for 3 years.
This piece of news is irrelevant to me.

What's interests me is that TDU2 is coming to PS3. 2 islands on TDU2. Ibiza and the original Hawaii island. damn thats awesome
Veneno  +   1532d ago
TDU2 on PS3 shouldn't be a surprise as the first was on both ps2 and psp. what would really be interesting is if TDU2 came to psp cause i would scoop that right up.
Tazz1992  +   1532d ago
I played this game on the ps2, the servers have been shut down for years now =(
RyuDrinksTheDew  +   1532d ago
uuhhhhhh, what?
Tazz1992  +   1532d ago
What do you mean uhh what? the game was on ps2 and the servers were shut down years ago, whats not to understand
GodsHand  +   1532d ago
Yeah it is on the PS2, but that version was missing stuff, like you could not use a manual trasnmission, and the mirrors were blurred out, as it did not show stuff clearly. Great game, but I don't know about when the servers went down on that.
