Codemasters Grid 2 coming out on May 30

Long awaited follow-up to street racer coming out in May

Namco Bandai has set the A/NZ release of Grid 2 for May 30.

Developed by Codemasters, the Grid series has been out of the spotlight since the debut of 2008’s Race Driver: Grid, as the studio instead focused on its rally themed Dirt series.

As in the previous title, GRID 2 puts the player behind the wheel of high performance vehicles spanning four decades.

The player takes part in motorsport championships held on city streets, licensed circuits and mountain roads in locations ranging from Paris to Abu Dhabi, Chicago, California and more.

In addition to a single player career mode, Grid 2 has a multiplayer component that connects to RaceNet, the online community portal for Codemasters Racing games.

The multiplayer mode makes use of a unique progression system that contains deep customisation options and integration, tracking player’s races, rewards and rivals.

Depending on the retailer Grid 2 is sold at, the game will come with pre-order bonus items and extra content, redeemable via download on PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and on PC.

The game will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
