    What are the chances that we see Porsche in GT6?

    I read somewhere that Porsche's exclusivity license with EA expired, hence why they are now in Forza, so why not in GT6? Hell, why not DLC for GT5?

    Lets not forget about the Pagani Huayra

    It's over 9000!

    No seriously though zero although if they announce by surprise Porsche man I don't know if I'll be able to handle that.

    I'll take Porsche over Ferrari right now not that I don't like Ferrari, but I like Porsche more.

    Next to none, and that's being optimistic

    The EA deal isn't over. Forza has a sub license. EA won't let them put certain models in their game. Anything can happen.

    ^this, thats why the new 911 isn't in Forza along with the 918 :(, but there is no reason they can't put some premium RUF's in though

    The sub license is expensive, it's EA we're talking about here.

    The implication from T10 with regards to the Porsche DLC pack was that it required a fairly large sum of money to get the sub-license back (and it only applies to FM4, so any future Forza games may not get them again, either). Since EA gets to decide the price for each party that's interested, the asking price for PD to score Porsche just might be too much for PD/Sony to bear.

    You, just earn a gold metal with this comment SlipZtrEm. :):tup:

    I think is better if PD/Sony doesn't get the sub-licence, because I kept telling to myself that EA will only charge them so much. So its smart of PD & Sony not to get it, just to get those cars. I rather have RUF over Porsche anyday, and that is not a lie. :sly:

    EA own the rights to Porsche in just about every platform video game. So yeah, unless they magically disappear, no new Porsche's :'(

    Diff'rent strokes, then - Porsche's racing heritage and wide breadth of road-going offerings is why I very badly wish they could be included in GT, and why they've become one of my most-driven marques in FM4 already (a Cayman R, of course). RUF's are great, and I'm sure an RGT8 would work a treat in GT6, but there's no RUF equivalents to their Cup/RSR racers, or the non-911's. There is no 917 or 962 over in the RUF stable, either.

    That said, I can hardly blame Sony for possibly not wanting to loosen the purse strings for one marque. GT is already the highest selling racing game franchise, and I'm sure the bean-counters see it as unnecessary spending if they're already in the number one sales spot.

    Someone said that EA Porsche deal has expired. There is also one unannounced Porsche game(non EA) coming put that team has gotten to trouble by using game engine components illegally from other simulator game developer. I hope they sort it out and game comes as planned.

    Some Premium RUFs would eliminate the need for Porsche all together IMO

    Ooh. :guilty: To be honest Porsche does have a lot of meaning for racing and love by everyone, and true about RUF not having those beautiful race cars and classics like the 917, even the 918 spyder.

    I'm not sure what Sony's problem is, but I believe that they're to cheap to at least earn the sub-licence for GT6. I want to see how the Porsche cars will look like if they were in it. :)

    Well. Having both Porsche and RUF will be greater to have for GT6. Just imagine that. *.* Having premium RUF cars with REAL engine sounds will be perfect. :tup:

    I don't see what the big deal with having Porsche in GT6. GT5 already has Ferrari and Lambo in the game, and to spite the car makers, EA cut them loose sort of speak in the Need for Speed franchise. I would be more than happy to see more from Ferrari and Lambo in GT6 than I would having Porsche and risk not having any exposure, good or bad, for the car company.

    I hope there will be Porsche's in GT6, but I seriously doubt it.

    I'd be happy with some premium RUF's. :)

    Premium rufs, gemballas and other tuned porsches like the singer 911 could he added. Porsche don't own the rights to these cars as all are from independent companies.

    Doesn't matter if they're in the game or not. PD will just mess up the sound of the car anyway..

    I think it would just be better to save the money of the license and get a few RUFs which are fairly similar to Porsches. They already have the license to RUF, don't they?

    RUF would be enough if they had all models in the game with removable aero parts replaceable with PD/RUF made "stock" parts to allow users to create Porsches from RUFs by themselves.

    Probably as likely as Kaz realising that not everyone likes Skylines. All 600 variants of them.
