Just downloaded it. Anyone else pick it up yet? They gave us the GT2RS, just surprised they didnt throw in a 997.2 gt3 or 997.2 gt3rs. I honestly at least expected the 4.0 but ill take this as a start. Its good to have them back in the game.

also includes exclusive Porsche events for the calendar.

Hope they could have done that before releasing the game, so we didn't have to pay for them

downloading now. if you have the seasons pass, will the porsche update be free?
Negative, the season pass only covered till march I think. last car pack wasn't included either

EA had the exclusive on the license for the NFS series and wouldn't let anyone else make a deal with Porsche till the contract ended (that's the reason GT only has RUF, but no Porsches).

A few years ago when the first 2 Forzas came out nobody gave a rat ass about it, so they thought that it wouldn't harm if an unknown studio made a game with Porsches in it because it couldn't steal much attention from the big boys (NFS and GT), but after the success of Forza 3 they had to use some dirty tactics like this Porsche exclusivity to retain some of the gamers.

I'm not sure if EA's license has ended, Porsche decided that it would be a good idea to let Turn 10 use their image or if they had to pay an enormous amount of money to EA and Porsche to finally be able to include them in the game.


I downloaded the pack yesterday, but it was late and fall asleep tuning my Carrera GT

GT is better than Forza in some aspects (shaders, drifting physics, steering wheel support) but overall Forza is better and more fun.

I have played thru every GT except 5 because I don't have a PS3 and my friend didn't liked Prologue so he just rented 5, and also have gone thru all 4 Forzas; I'm talking a HUGE chunk of my life (well over 600 hrs between all of them) spent on those games.

I still have a soft spot for GT, but I feel like they dropped the ball on 5, and Forza series has matured amazingly over the years. the jump from one game to the other is brutal in therms of physics, gameplay and graphics.

Unfortunately the lack of support for steering wheels (only Microsoft and Fanatec) and the fact that you need to buy a shitload of DLC to have a complete experience can make you think twice.

For solo using a good steering wheel setup, I would recomend GT. For something more casual and online, Forza (doesn't mean that it's a shallow game, just that is more user friendly for everyone)
