I wish they'd just add the damn mid race saves already. Getting tired of seeing this games trophy percentage sitting at 98%.

Yup. Can't happen soon enough. Now with the server down for maintenance I am not sure what to do with myself. I guess i will go outside or something.

I know this is the GT5 thread, but sooooooo many arguments have been waged over the following topic that I couldn't help but feel smug apon reading the following news!

EA snubs Forza 4 collaboration, blocks Porsche inclusion
"This kills me," says Turn 10 creative director



Quote:
Forza 4 will not feature any Porsche cars because EA - which owns a Porsche sub-licensing deal - refused to collaborate with developer Turn 10 and allow the brand's inclusion.

Outwardly upset by EA's stance, Turn 10 creative director Dan Greenawalt explained the matter in a Q&A post on the Forza blog.

It's a long answer but it's also very frank and pretty interesting, so here's the whole of it:

"This kills me. While Forza Motorsport 4 will feature RUF, it will not include Porsche cars. As many of you know, since the beginning of the Forza franchise, the Porsche license has been available only through a sub-licensing deal with EA.

"In Forza 3, we were able to feature more than 35 different Porsche models by offering to collaborate with EA. For Forza 4, we were looking forward to adding even more Porsche cars, and we were especially looking forward to featuring multiple Porsche experiences in our new Autovista mode. In the end, however, EA couldn't see their way towards collaborating again.

"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.

"In our business, we stay friendly with all of the manufacturers and licensors necessary to deliver players rich and innovative automotive experiences. As you'd expect, this includes quite a few key people in Porsche circles.

"To make sure we tried everything, we consulted with these advocates and were happy to find they were already aware of the situation and lobbying from within on behalf of Forza 4--and, despite the result, we thank them for their efforts.

"While we respect EA's need to run their business as they see fit, we've regularly collaborated in the past and hope we can find our way back to that approach.

"Forza had the exclusive license for all Ferrari cars, for example, on the Xbox and PC platforms. But at the end of the day, we've always found that we just weren't willing to block other racing games from having Ferraris outright, as we believed that this would do nothing but hurt the racing ecosystem.

"I'm very sorry for all of this. Fans shouldn't have to think about any of this - you should just be able to drive Porsches and Ferraris in the games you love. Porsche makes wonderful cars and I'm sorry that we won't have them in Forza 4.

"As I mentioned earlier, we have added three RUF cars in Forza 4. RUF is a manufacturer in their own right, not simply an aftermarket mod shop-they completely remanufacture and enhance the models that they start from, and the results are unique, incredibly fast, and the cars look great.

"Losing more than 35 Porsche models is a lost opportunity for Porsche fans (as well as a lost opportunity to make future Porsche fans), but I hope that Forza 4 players understand and enjoy the new makes and models that have taken their place."

I blame Porsche for selling the exclusive rights to EA all those years ago without looking to the future

I guess they didn't know any better, after all they make cars not games.

Forza actually used more Porsche than EA have in any single game they have released. This comment from another forum sums up my thoughts pretty well;


Quote:
so what do EA do? They use their finanical muscle to make it an unlevel playing field, so you have to make do with their inferior product if you want the "real" deal.

Reply: Microsoft does this and has done it for years as well.

EA are protecting their interests with Porsche just as much as Microsoft is protecting their interests with Ferrari. Turn 10 had actually modelled and used more Porsche cars in Forza Motorsport than EA use in their own games - and they're the one's with the license!

These kind of tit for tat arguments are not much different to those between Microsoft and Google with regards to Google buying out Motorola just to acquire IP Microsoft needs to prevent mobile manufacturers from being sued by Microsoft for using Android to the tune of a Windows Phone 7 license.

Microsoft wants only to be #1 and they don't care who's in their way to get there. If / when they have their monopoly - you'll pay for it. It's unsurprising to see EA take this stance.

That's kinda what EA did with NFL license too. Can't beat them, so use your money to stop them. Only the Porsche thing isn't nearly as big as the entire NFL license.

You'll be thinking for awhile. Between that and the "better never than late" philosophy they talked about yesterday, it's pretty hilarious. I can't feel bad for the Forza people at all, but EA is acting more and more like Activision lately.

Well first off, it wasn't the publisher Microsoft complaining, it was the developer at the studio, Turn 10. (Yes, MS owns them but you make it sound like Bill Gates was the one complaining I'd bet if you talked with Kaz long enough he would do the same. In 2008, he said that GT had "Most no, all, of the major car manufacturers". When pressed about Porsche he finally said, "Probably". Later when he confirmed they won't have Porsche due to licensing issues he tried to avoid the subject with saying all the cars they did have but I bet if you pressed him more he would sound similar to the Turn 10 producer.

If you own Shift 2 you know that 911 GT3, forgot which exact model but one of the new ones, is one of the crappier driving cars in the game, swaying back and forth and hard to keep in a straight line. The ones in Grid, a Codemaster game, respond much better.

EA, as of 2014, can't legally have an exclusive NFL contract per the Supreme Court ruling from the case where a clothing maker sued because Reebok has an exclusive uniform contract. The NFL said it was a single entity and the court ruled its not since every team has a different owner. We'll have to see if anyone is going to step up and pony up a ton of cash to compete with EA because the NFL may make the contract so big no one else is interested unless its someone huge like Activision whose the biggest video game company. New contracts may mean each individual team has to get in on a contract for a new game too, that is going to be interesting.

Kazunori Yamauchi has now confirmed, via Twitter, the game’s next update should become available on August 29th/30th.

Following up with his previous remarks about v1.11, he wisely tempers expectations, reiterating the update will focus only on fixing software bugs within the game. New “features and content”, he says, will be arriving “in September and October”. That said, it is worth noting GT5‘s upcoming NASCAR Seasonal Event, featuring Jeff Gordon’s racing suit and helmet, is still scheduled to go live along with v1.11.

Kazunori has also hinted that he’s considering posting tweets in English, which would certainly be very welcome move by many of his non-Japanese-speaking followers and may help reduce the chance of mis-information spreading due to bungled translations.

Too bad the governing bodies of Le Mans series and GT1 didn't get together a couple years back because it looks like Sebring and Road Atlanta are going to be added to the upcoming new World Endurance series. Then we most likely would have those wonderful tracks in the game.
