No Porsche in Forza 4
Fact I didn’t know: EA owns the exclusive video game rights to the Porsche brand. In order to get Porsche vehicles in your game, you have to make a sublicensing deal with EA. Unfortunately, Turn 10 was unable to do so this time around on Forza Motorsport 4.
“This kills me. … We’ve asked our contacts at EA to reconsider their position frequently and regularly over the last 18 months,” Turn 10′s Brian Ekberg said, via a blog post. “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.
This is sad. I guess we’ll have to take solace in the several hundred other cars that WILL be in the game. How will we ever survive?
