    this might be an end of year license announcement sort of thing. Id say a porsche license is up there with ferrari or lamboghini or even higher because they are about to open those floodgates.

    unless they renew and honestly, why shouldn't they (Porsche)? if it's worth the money for them

    NFS is EA's only driving game, does it really pay off for Porsche? Doubtful. They are likely aware that more money can be made elsewhere....or more likely everywhere.

    I don't know about how much money was worth this long period licence at time, but in my opinion hardly it will still be worth the same in current times.
    I don't think Porsche is happy about the way EA used their licence. Except arcade NFS, there's no real image return for Porsche with EA licences.
    And also about money: I think times are changed, and Porsche would pretend MUCH MORE from a software house for such kind of exclusive long term licence.

    Now videogames are even much more massive than early 2000, a sofware licence is worth much more, in my opinion.
    Just Porsche didn't do such great deal at that time (my opinion). ;)

    that can all very well be true, however EA is rich, filhy rich, and they moight have put on the table sometime really serious such as 6-7 zeroed numbers

    again, Porsche themself would know the best if it was worth it or not, so we shall see
    but I think it doesn't automatically mean that now we will see Porsches everywhere

    well this licence contract was signed prior VW bought Porsche .. so there is a hope that VW will take different approach and hopefully next corespondence would end with: Sincerely, (not)yours VW ..

    Kazunori Yamauchi(Head of Polyphony Digital) said back in 2013 that they have a good relationship with Porsche. Hopefully this rumor is true, and someday we'll all be able to enjoy our favorite Porsches in our favorite games. :)

    So basically they assume that the contract will expire in 2016 because that's when Forza will get Porsches in the game.
    All aboard the hype train... No.

    Because of this sentence in their article:
    "“[…] Porsche will be back, too, although not until 2016—Electronic Arts still has an exclusive license for the German sports car maker until then.”

    I doubt this is kind of a "flood-gate" to any racing game as they said, NFS didn't sell because of Porsche, it sold because of the publicity of the game, how addictive it was back in the days and stuff like Lambroghini's and McLarens back in the day.

    I like Porsche, the 928 was beautiful and powerful. But to be honest there are manufacturers far more worthy. Still the fat lady has not finished singing the EA (it's not in the game), wait till VW say what is what before jumping the gun. It would be great to see, but not so to the disadvantage of other manufacturers.

    I'd say it's no longer about the money for Porsche, assuming it was an issue back when the deal was inked. Given the way EA has misused the licence, I doubt any amount of money will bring Porsche back to the table with EA. I see them as being far more concerned now with how the brand is represented. Racing games and sims are being taken much more seriously these days, and when Porsche sees how other brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini are being promoted, I hope they're smart enough to want in on that action. A kid that falls in love with a car he races in a game/sim will often grow up having brand loyalty and even pursue purchasing that car as an adult.

    theres just no way ea is getting their worth from the porsche contract. they dont have any car collection games or sims...arcade games with phony numbers, no cockpits, etc...what do they gain from exclusivity??

    i would not be worried about ea resigning them but rather turn 10 signing them to a deal. they have unlimited cash & could gain a lot vs gt (and now pcars & even AC) from having porsche exclusivity. but EA?? dont see them doing it, they made a run at the genre w/ the shift games & now theyre back to strictly arcade stuff.

    Yeah, but what I mean is on what they are basing that statement? I don't see any quote there which would indicate it has been said by someone from T10. So for me this sentence doesn't mean anything because there's no background for it, that's why I said they assumed it.
    With that being said I think it's too soon to take it as a fact. Better be surprised positively if this turn out to be true than dissapointed.

    I'd be interested to know how many devs have approached Porsche & EA asking / begging / offering large quantities of money for the inclusion of Porsche in their titles. I'd like to think there is somebody at Porsche crying into their cheerios at all the missed opportunities.

    It'd be fantastic if Kunos could get Porsche, but as others have said, EA have to be stupid not to renew their contract, but there's still a little part of me dying to hope that Porsche see this as an opportunity and will sell their license for a reasonable price.
