I just watched an interview with Dan Greenawalt talking about the lighting. They hired a guy from Pixar with the image based lighing engine.

I preordered the LCE at Best Buy so I could get the 1M. I'm annoyed that it's $10 more than Amazon and Lamestop, but I wanted a 1M more. And it's a birthday gift so I couldn't care less :p

Fuck this. I just preordered too. At least I still have Forza 3. EA, go die in a fire.

How long does EA's 'exclusive' deal last? Is there a way we can form, like, a protest or flash mob to try to convince them to give up these rights? In the very least it'll open up Porsche to everyone.

While I understand you're upset, don't pass on this based on that reason alone. You'll be missing out. Besides, not getting it does nothing to EA, but only to T10.

Yeah, not having Porsche hasn't really effected GranTurismo, so it's not going to effect Forza (besides losing, what was it, 35 cars?). I'd say the better way to go about this is to boycott any racing game put out by EA :p

Seriously, EA. Quit ruining games. Stop buying smaller game firms and ruining their original intellectual property. Let Porsche go so other games can use them.
I know EA is all about money and not really about making games, but still. Its like its their business model. oh wait.. it is :)

Seriously, they ruin everything.

No worries there- I still want it. I won't be cancelling my order unless they only offer Lifan and Sucklongwang. :D

I'm still excited for this game, just angry at Electronic Assholes.

I work across the street from EA's main headquarters. I can post a list of grievances on the EA cafeteria door, if you all like :)

EA doesn't even make good use of the license. While they were at least leasing it to Turn 10, now all they will do with it is put them in crap NFS settings. Unless they plan to do a proper sequel to Porsche Unleashed (with good physics to support it), their tight hold on the license is quite unforgivable.

And why Porsche gave an exclusive license to EA in the beginning is beyond me. I'm sure Polyphony Digital was willing to pay a pretty penny, and I'm betting Turn 10 is now as well.

And how do you all feel about this?

Word is it won't be drivable.

While a total marketing ploy, I like it. I've always been in love with the Warthog. What odd, they SAY it's not going to be drivable, but it has a price....

I think if enough people call for it, they will put it in. Why not have an all Warthog race?
