Is anyone missing Ferrari in Hot Pursuit? I really wanted to see them in the game.

What do you think?

We already have a metric ****tonne of them in NFSMW so no, I don't miss any Ferraris.
And they went full retard in TDU2, as not a single one is tunable performance-wise.

There's no Ferraris because everyone knows that if there were some i would make it a point to smash every single Ferrari available in the game and post screenshots.


No, they just want to show their cars as indestructible, already perfect performance wise cars that never crash, never get into trouble with cops, and are the best.



(Offtopic: For me the Ferrari brand ended sometime after 360 Modena, i never liked any of the new Ferraris since then.)

I highly doubt that damage is the reason. Ever heard of Ferrari Virtual Racing game? It's a free game that's lisenced by Ferrari. It's fun as hell. Anyways, that game has better physics and damage than Shift. I believe they aren't allowing EA to use Ferraris in their games is because... they're EA. They first stopped putting Ferraris ever since UG came out, because Ferrari did not want their cars to be abused with kits, rims, scoops, wings, etc.

Reason 'Damage' contradicted. Reason 'customization' proposed.

NFS Hot Pursuit has none. It was in NFS Shift. X360 only.

So they like Microsoft, eh? Not PC, their main seller. OK, Sony is bad... Shitload of Ferrari in GT5

No matter what theory you make, you won't decypher their 'logic'. It's just stupid.

If GT5 has F50/F40/F355/Testarossa then its WIN for me.


Gran Turismo for PSP has a ferrari but unfortunately its Enzo, and their 2007 F1 vehicle. Both of which are ugly as hell imo.

Anyway, i doubt we will ever see Ferrari in NFS again.

Damage is the reason there are no Ferrari's in NFS? LOL, you guys are so stupid.

The real reason is money. Ferrari are complete snobs and have a tight grip on who they give their licensing out to. You can't just put a Ferrari logo on anything, you have to spend millions and millions of dollars and get permission from the people who run the company. For example, you don't see Ferrari clothes at Wal-Mart, only Puma can make them. I'm sure EA has the money to buy the Ferrari license, but I doubt Ferrari would give them it now because every NFS since HP2 has been total shit. Unworthy of including Ferrari's in the car list, in my opinion and Ferrari's opinion. I don't want to see a Ferrari put in the same game as a riced Civic or M3 or whatever shit they put in modern NFS nowadays.

Ferrari isn't in NFS anymore because EA insulted il commendatore. Simple as that.

Seriously though, I do believe there was some sort of disagreement between the two companies at some point, hence why EA can't even show their past involvement with Ferrari in the old games (the Ferrari 550 in the NFSHS cover shown in the NFS site was replaced by a Lambo Murciélago). Surely Ferrari charges a lot for their license (and there's the extra demanded by Microsoft too), but EA is rich. They would find a way around it if they could. I mean, Atari, which is nearly bankrupt, has a Ferrari license.

There are Ferraris in NFS Shift because of a loophole. SMS had licensed them for another game they were making, which would revolve around Ferraris. This game became NFS Shift when they became involved with EA, therefore they were able to use Ferraris in their game. But Microsoft intervened and demanded exclusivity for the Xbox.

I hope it's possible to put Shift 1 Ferraris in Shift 2. I really do miss Ferraris, even though the company (at least the marketing department) is run by elitist idiots. Well, Enzo himself wasn't the easiest man to strike a deal with, but he's been long dead now. No need to perpetuate his eccentricities...

Best explanation yet; I thought about that example for a while, but forgot all about that Murci on the cover of a game it didn't at all feature...

As I thought before, money is no reason.

This game became NFS Shift when they became involved with EA, therefore they were able to use Ferraris in their game. But Microsoft intervened and demanded exclusivity for the Xbox.

I don't see how this loophole works. They implemented Ferrari in NFS, Ferrari shouldn't care what other games they develop. If Microsoft intervened, then tell me why there isn't any Ferraris on PC despite extremely easy conversion (as proven by some awesome guys).

I hope it's possible to put Shift 1 Ferraris in Shift 2. I really do miss Ferraris, even though the company (at least the marketing department) is run by elitist idiots.

Man, they put Ferraris in that joke of a game that's Gran Turismo 5, but they don't put em in Need for Speed? What gives? When Porsche and Lamborghini are perfectly happy to throw a dozen models into the game each, you'd think that Ferrari would want to join in. Freaking party poopers.

On a slightly related note, why aren't there Ferraris in Shift 2 either? If this game here is too damaging for their pedigree, surely they'd love to put them into a professional racing game. I mean, when Ferrari has their own THEME PARK and they still refuse to put them in good games? I just want to punch their creative director so badly

If I could play Hot Pursuit 2010 I would definitely want some Ferraris in it. But since these decisions are made by others - the companies and their CEOs - and not by us, the consumers - who should actually have the right to demand what we want - then what else can we expect other than for them to mock us and "serve" us whatever they want. We pay for whatever crap they release and they also wanna make us believe that it's for our own good or something like that. Hell, maybe they think we even gotta let them manipulate our thoughts and preferences. It's really revolting!

One more reason for me - if I really needed one - to hate big companies, their politics and their CEOs. It's shamefully little said "shame on them"!

Ferraris are hours-concours. The company may be run by idiots (Di Montezemolo is quite a pretentious fellow IMO), but the guys who actually make the cars (the engineers, the workers) are among an unparalleled elite. I'm firmly of the opinion that driving a Ferrari is like driving no other car, and people I know who have driven and ridden these cars say the same. The day I get to drive one (if it ever comes) will be one of the most special in my life, moreso than the day I start owning my first BMW. :P So all this crap about posting crashed Ferraris is just childish hate IMO.
