Tonight's Top Gear was quite possibly the greatest 1 hour of television in the history of the medium. What a Face What a Face What a Face What a Face

Porsche will never really be in GT, because Porsche thinks that they're owed licensing fees. PD doesn't pay fees, to anyone. Microsoft will pay for anything. At least that's always been my understanding.

EA holds the exclusive digital rights to Porsches; you want Porsches in your game you pay EA.

Interesting - My point still stands though, PD doesn't pay for rights. I've always understood it to be a situation where PD considers itself to be, essentially, offering an advertising service to car companies by putting them in GT - and certainly Nissan agrees.

Bloody uptight Germans... Even Ferrari, the most arogant of all car companies has bent to the will of Kaz... Wink

I think they used to take that stance, but had to cave to get the likes of Lamborghini and more importantly Ferrari. Now it's just a case of EA not liking PD or asking too much.

Your move PD.

Hmm, that's logical. I've been trying to find the answer to "how" PD got Ferrari or Lambo in the game forever, and despite the fact that you can find ANYTHING on the Internet, you can't find anyone reporting on that... Suspect

Interestingly, from what I could gather on the interwebs, EA's rights to Ferrari and Porsche used to be exclusive, however that's obviously no longer the case with Forza featuring their cars.

Since ultimately, the manufacturers own the rights to their own product, PD wouldn't be negotiating with EA on the deal, they'd be negotiating with Porsche. If Porsche has opened up their agreement to now include Turn 10 (Microsoft), in addition to EA, it's still "Your move PD" but it's to talk with Porsche.

Sony is not in great shape right now, in fact they are doing quite poorly, so it may be an issue where they just don't have the money to back PD's purchase of the Porsche license, at least not for a game that's in to the "DLC until death/birth of a new game" cycle.

No. duh! PD would be negotiating with EA because EA owns the rights to reproduce Porsche cars digitally as I said earlier. Porsche did this deal with EA during the genesis of the "NFS:Porsche Unleashed" game over a decade ago. EA can sublicence them as they see fit. You can either do a deal with EA (ie: pay EA $) or not have Porsches in your game.
The only possible end-arounds are:
1) to do a deal with a race marketing company in charge of a series Porsche enters, as entering a race often gives the organizers the ability to use the imagery for promotion.*
2) wait out EAs deal ending.

*GT already has WRC, SuperGT and NASCAR - none of which Porsche enter. EA (via Shift) has the deal with SRO for GT4/3/1 cars. Turn 10 (the Forza people) has a deal with the ALMS.
