Porsche Returns To Forza Motorsports For Xbox 360 23
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Console Games, Forza Motorsport 4, Kurt, News, porsche, Xbox 360 on 05 23rd, 2012

There’s good news for fans of Forza Motorsports 4 on Microsoft’s Xbox 360: for the first time since launch of Forza 4, you’ll be able to buy and download an expansion pack containing some 30 assorted Porsche street and race models.

Porsche, present in Forza 3, was excluded from Forza 4 due to a licensing agreement between Porsche and game studio EA Sports. EA Sports opted not to license any Porsche models to Turn 10 for the Forza 4 game, essentially forcing gamers with an affinity for Porsche to buy “Need For Speed” franchise games from EA.

We’re not sure what’s changed, but given that the press release on the expansion pack came from Porsche North America, we can assume the automaker saw things a bit differently than EA Sports. The more gamers who drive Porsches in the virtual world, the more potential customers Porsche has in the future.

The Porsche Expansion Pack will cost 1,600 Microsoft points, or the equivalent of $19.99, and includes an impressive variety of current and vintage Porsche models.

Here’s the complete list of cars in the expansion pack:

Many automotive enthusiasts love a good racing game but sometimes we want to break away from Forza Motorsports, Gran Turismo and even Test Drive Unlimited. As an alternative, Atari has revealed its first official trailer for their next game in the Test Drive racing franchise, Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends.

The game looks to be a hit, especially among enthusiasts who would love to slip behind the wheel of a Ferrari in particular. I mean, who would not want to “virtually” drive a Ferrari -vintage or new? The new game combines an astonishing 70 years of Ferrari’s automotive culture and history. You will not want to pass up on this new game and at least drive a $30 million+ Ferrari 250 GTO around a race track.

Hit up the official Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends trailer below and let us know if you like what you see.
