RE:【情報】4代確定沒有收錄Porshe

What’s the status of Porsche in Forza Motorsport 4?
 
保時捷究竟在《極限競速4》的狀況是如何?

This kills me. While Forza Motorsport 4 will feature RUF, it will not include Porsche cars. As many of you know, since the beginning of the Forza franchise, the Porsche license has been available only through a sub-licensing deal with EA. In Forza 3, we were able to feature more than 35 different Porsche models by offering to collaborate with EA. For Forza 4, we were looking forward to adding even more Porsche cars, and we were especially looking forward to featuring multiple Porsche experiences in our new Autovista mode. In the end, however, EA couldn’t see their way towards collaborating again.  

《極限競速4》雖然會有RUF,但不會收錄保時捷。自《極限競速》系列一開始,唯一可以得到保時捷授權的方法就是去找EA談子授權(因為EA有保時捷的獨家授權)。《極限競速》系列一直到3代都有與EA達成授權協定,3代也收了35輛保時捷車種。在4代本想收錄更多保時捷,且把其中幾輛做到Autovista模式(賞車模式)中,但EA卻決定不再合作。

We’ve asked our contacts at EA to reconsider their position frequently and regularly over the last 18 months. We also reached out to various influential people in gaming to lobby on our behalf, and on your behalf, but that was to no avail.  
 
在過去18個月,Turn10不斷要求EA重新考慮合作,甚至找了有影響力的人來遊說,但始終得不到回心轉意。

In our business, we stay friendly with all of the manufacturers and licensors necessary to deliver players rich and innovative automotive experiences. As you’d expect, this includes quite a few key people in Porsche circles. To make sure we tried everything, we consulted with these advocates and were happy to find they were already aware of the situation and lobbying from within on behalf of Forza 4--and, despite the result, we thank them for their efforts.  
 
為讓玩家有最好的體驗,Turn10和各大車廠與授權者保持友好關係,其中當然包括保時捷的相關人士。為確保我們用盡各式方法,Turn10告訴了他們這個情形,所幸他們都能了解並幫《極限競速4》遊說-不過結局依舊,但仍感謝相關人士的幫助。

While we respect EA’s need to run their business as they see fit, we’ve regularly collaborated in the past and hope we can find our way back to that approach. Forza had the exclusive license for all Ferrari cars, for example, on the Xbox and PC platforms. But at the end of the day, we’ve always found that we just weren’t willing to block other racing games from having Ferraris outright, as we believed that this would do nothing but hurt the racing ecosystem.
 
因為EA有自己的業務要推行,所以Turn10尊重EA決定。但過去曾EA合作,也希望能找到方法再度攜手。舉例來說,《極限競速》系列擁有法拉利所有車輛在XBOX與PC的獨家授權,但它們並不阻止其他賽車遊戲收錄法拉利,因為他們相信這對賽車的發展不是件好事。

I’m very sorry for all of this. Fans shouldn’t have to think about any of this – you should just be able to drive Porsches and Ferraris in the games you love. Porsche makes wonderful cars and I’m sorry that we won’t have them in Forza 4. As I mentioned earlier, we have added three RUF cars in Forza 4. RUF is a manufacturer in their own right, not simply an aftermarket mod shop—they completely remanufacture and enhance the models that they start from, and the results are unique, incredibly fast, and the cars look great. Losing more than 35 Porsche models is a lost opportunity for Porsche fans (as well as a lost opportunity to make future Porsche fans), but I hope that Forza 4 players understand and enjoy the new makes and models that have taken their place.

Turn10對此感到抱歉,玩家本該不用擔心這種事的,玩家應該可以自由選擇要保時捷或法拉利,很遺憾《極限競速4》不能收錄保時捷。但也如先前所提,《極限競速4》有收錄RUF的車,RUF不單只是間(保時捷)改裝廠,他們有自己的授權。損失35輛保時捷對保時捷迷(與未來將成為保時捷迷)來說是個大損失,但希望《極限競速4》玩家能了解並享受收錄的車輛與賽道。
