It was more of a, "Our game has this car, theirs doesn't. Please buy our game."

I played the demo the other day. Its nice but it doesnt really seem to be all that difference game play wise. It kind of just looks like they put the game in high def and thats it.

if porsche wanted their cars in gt or forza they would be in them but I doubt either company is willing to pay whatever amount they want. EA has the licensing but its not an exclusive lifetime deal

Porsche does not care. Why would they? Pretty sure their brand name speaks for itself and they don't need to advertise their cars through videogames. EA paid a big chunk for the name, I'm sure just as Turn10 paid a big chunk of change for Ferrari. It's more of a gentleman's rule that one developer would give licensing to another.

obviously porsche doesn't care or they would have their cars in each game. All Im saying is that if they wanted to, they could have the cars in forza/gt. Its not so much EA's fault as it is Porsche. Ferrari is also in Gran Turismo btw

apparently Ferrari makes more money by letting their brand logo be used on other stuff than they make off of building cars. they probably figured out a way to charge companies by the item that makes them more money than exclusive rights.

That's because Turn10 authorized the use of the Ferrari name because they are not *******s.

Forza is 100 times better than NFS anyway. NFS games feel like you're driving a plastic car with 800 horsepower; it stinks.

It was definitely worth the extra $20 considering buying those cars in packs would easily equate to $30 or more.

Anyone else pre-order it? It's out on the 11th, and I'm definitely taking the day off from work to play.

Definitely worth the buy. Only got to play it for a little bit last night but it is lightyears better than FM3. The intro with Clarkson is very cool.

Handling is significantly better, graphics are moderately better, sounds seem better, and everything seems much more crisp and well-made. Forza 3 was obviously rushed out and the flaws were glaring in my eyes. FM4 is a much much better game. I cannot wait until my Fanatec wheel comes.

As a person new to racing games, I enjoy this game a lot. However, if your new to the game for me anyways, its kind of pointless to upgrade your cars. They easily become illegal.

The old forza 2 thread for this game was epic/huge. sad to see thats all this game gets now. Are they still strict on downloading other's tunes like they were in F3? that broke the game for me, because i was a great driver but terrible at tuning. (I was top 30 in Forza 2 leaderboards because of that)
