No Porsche for Forza 4

8:02:00 AM


Turn 10 is reporting that their upcoming game called Forza Motorsport 4 is not going to have a Porsche car as an option. They said that EA could not come to an agreement with them about it. EA has the official license for Porsche cars in video games, but they will not grant them the license for the new edition. Previous editions had Porsches in it, but this year it appears that EA and Turn 10 could not find middle ground. Here is what one of their developers had to say.
“This kills me. … We’ve asked our contacts at EA to reconsider their position frequently and regularly over the last 18 months We also reached out to various influential people in gaming to lobby on our behalf, and on your behalf, but that was to no avail”.
Turn 10 seems to be very mad ay EA but unlike EA they are a smaller company that does not have the resources that they do which is probably the reason why they had to throw in the towel. EA is a major powerhouse in the video game market, and as with any big company they struggle with their power. As for the future, Turn 10 did not state if this will affect future editions or not.

Do you think EA should not own the license to certain things? I am shocked that they are allowed to or any developer is allowed, but I suppose that with cars they have to get a license from the manufacture-etc, etc. I just think it really is more of a waste for everybody involved, but at least they are not letting it stop them from releasing the game.
