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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
