Let's all thank EA for no Posches in Forza 4

Post by S7 Glock on Mon Oct 17, 2011 11:55 am

I found this little tid bit on the net -
Crying or Very sad
You can thank EA for that one. EA owns exclusive rights to using them in racing games, in the past they would sell these rights to other games in the form of a sub-license, Forza included. Now however EA has decided to be petty and refused to allow Turn 10 another sub-license. You can show EA how you feel about this by boycotting their games, I sure will be.

I read about this a while back. Really sucks. Especially since Turn 10 had the exclusive rights to Ferrari and let EA use them in their games. Turn about is fair play? Apparently not. But I doubt I will be able to avoid EA games. I am definitely getting Battlefield and let's not forget about Mass Effect 3 next year. Not a chance I am missing those games no matter how mad I am.

Well the RUF is a Porsche at heart! So we at least have one. Sucks not to have a Porshe GT

This was posted a while ago, like Interseptor said. This is the same thing that happened with the NFL license so I'm confused why everyone is surprised that EA would pull a douchebag move like this. It's too bad that they do this kind of stuff. But I'm with Zak, while I probably won't get BF3, I'm not going to miss ME3, I've been waiting for that game since I finished ME2.

I think any surprise is there because Turn 10 let EA use Ferrarri, so you would expect EA to do the same in turn. Even for them it's a lame move. Especially since it's not like it will diminish Forza sales or the games quality. Just a stupid marketing play on their part.

Well, EA is engaging in excessive douchebaggery lately so I'm not really surprised by anything they do.

Yeah I heard about this too and not really surprising to me coming from EA. I'm with you Glock the last EA game I played was Medal of Honor and was not impressed. I will boycot with you as EA games don't interest me. I'm not a battlefield fan, nor do I play any of their sports games so for me to boycot means I'm not really missing much. On one hand I would like to see turn 10 be the bigger man and still sub-lease to EA but it would also be nice to see turn 10 do the same thing to EA just to prove a point.

Easy...
Anywhere in Forza you would have purchased, painted, tuned, traded, or raced a Porsche--replace that garage spot with a Mustang. Rolling Eyes LOL

LOL Just having fun.
In all seriousness it's pretty lame not to have Porsche represented in a game like this. But as others have said, with EA I'm really not surprised!

I would think that the people at Porsche would be most upset.

Thank you for fixing this monumental error. Win races with Mustangs, who in their right mind would try to do that? Very Happy J/k!

It's okay since this morning I saw this pale Crying or Very sad :

FORD TO DISCONTINUE THE NEARLY 50 YEAR MUSTANG BRAND
October 20, 2011

DETROIT—-Ford officials issued a massive recall of the entire 2011 5.0 Mustang line Tuesday, apologizing for a quality-control oversight that led to the company manufacturing a bad-ass muscle car that was way too awesome for the American public in general. "We deeply regret this lapse in judgment and accept full responsibility for the mistake," Ford CEO Alan R. Mulally said standing beside a gorgeous white, cherry-red interior vehicle recalled for being "smoking hot." "After numerous road tests, we've found the car to be a mean, mean ride that Americans are simply not cool enough to handle, and it would be irresponsible of us to allow anyone to get behind the wheel of this supercharged machine after driving Chevy, Mazda, and Toyota all their lives. Compared to those P.O.S. vehicles it's truly frightening how sweet the Mustang is." According to Mulally, Ford has canceled production on the 2012-2015 Mustangs, and will instead release a line of fuel-efficient vehicles in an effort to appeal to boring, old, slower Americans.

lol!
