Gametrailers gets fried over “fake” GRID comparison

By Patrick Garratt, Saturday, 10 May 2008 21:25 GMT

Gametrailers is experiencing something of a meltdown over a comparison trailer showing GRID’s physics – in the opinion of the masses – as superior in the game’s 360 version.

Unfortunately for the site, both videos used in the movie were from the PS3 version, as seen clearly from the controller map in the bottom of the screen.

Gametrailers has now removed the video and according to various reports is removing all comments from the site related to the issue and has disabled it’s email contact function in reaction to teh internets going shithouse mental.

Someone, of course, nabbed the video before it was removed. A genuine error? Probably. Watch it after the break. Can’t beat the internet, Gametrailers. Third law of life.
