GRID PC servers closed down, Xbox 360 servers still going

Servers for Codemaster’s 2008 racer, GRID have been shut down, according to a report on MCV. The Xbox 360 servers will keep on running, but Codies have yanked the plug on PC and PS3 servers for the game.

The story is too old to be commented.

Love how the title fails to mention the Ps3 servers going down too.

The community has found a work around by using Tunngle ( http://www.tunngle.net ), at least for the PC version. As far as I know PS3 users are SOL unless they use something like Xlink Kai.

Well thats the beauty of the PC platform. It has a lot more freedom. With console people are tied down by what the developer or console maker wants to do.

An example being Halo 2 on 360. It was very popular when MS took down XBL for xbox there was nothing Xbox gamers could do to play halo 2 online again.

you still need a PC to make it happen. not like you can do it directly over console only.

Sorry but you're wrong. Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, PSP, and PC players can use Xlink Kai to play older games which no longer offer the online portion of the game. I use to use Xlink YEARS ago to play SOCOM 2 shortly after it was infested with cheaters using Codebreaker and all that crap. So no it's not the beauty of the PC platform, it's the beauty of software like Xlink which you can download on your PC to play all your old consoles games online again.

I never said you didn't need a PC, but you're acting like if a game no longer offers online support on consoles, they can't do anything about it, which is exactly what you said:

"when MS took down XBL for xbox there was nothing Xbox gamers could do to play halo 2 online again."

Which is completely false since you can use Xlink to play Halo 2 online. You're speaking about Xlink like you know what it is, when really you have no idea, otherwise you wouldn't have made such a statement.
