Porsche in Forza 3... No longer in Forza 4

With only a few months to the release of Forza Motorsport 4 (FM4) on Xbox 360, Porsche fans the world over were looking forward to getting behind the wheel of several dozen of the Stuttgart sports cars.

Only now, they won't be able to. Thanks to rival developer Electronic Arts (EA) tightening its rules on who can use its exclusive Porsche licence, Forza developers Turn 10 can no longer offer Porsches in FM4.

For a game like Forza which prides itself on offering the latest sports cars from around the world, this is a disaster - not to mention incredibly disappointing for fans like ourselves who couldn't wait to take them out for a spin.

Dan Greenawalt, creative director at Turn 10, expressed his disappointment on the Forza blog.

"This kills me...Since the beginning of the Forza franchise, the Porsche license has been available only through a sub-licensing deal with EA... We've asked our contacts at EA to reconsider their position frequently... but that was to no avail"

Forza Motorsport 4 was due to have even more than FM3's 35 different Porsche models, so the news has dealt the game a huge blow.

We're still looking forward to FM4, due for release October 11. It's just a pity we'll have to go somewhere else for our rear-engined flat-six fantasies. At least there are still Ferraris, McLarens and Aston Martins to look forward to.
