Ships to U.S. Retail Stores Nationwide
Start your engines! Codemasters today announced
that GRID has shipped to US retail stores. GRID is now available for the Xbox
360, the PLAYSTATION 3 and Games For Windows.
GRID is an all-new race experience, taking

incorporates only the most powerful racecars ever created – new and classic,
circuit and drift. GRID features the most detailed and destructible range of
courses ever included in a Codemasters title, challenging gamers with a wide
variety of racing styles – from official circuit challenges and drifting events
to road races and urban street competitions around the globe.
"Codemasters has a rich history of producing AAA
racing games," said Dave Miller, Vice President of Marketing. "GRID is turning
out to be one of the highest-scoring racing games the industry has seen in
years*. By putting the ‘racing’ back into the racing genre, we’ve reignited what
makes people love these games."
