EA has blocked Turn 10 from including Porsche in upcoming Xbox 360 exclusive racing game Forza 4.

"This kills me," said creative director Dan Greenawalt in an interview on forzamotorsport.net(reported by IGN).

"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.

I always wonder why this is a big deal when RUF (modified Porsches) are still available. I remember when this was the case with GT3. Interesting to see EA getting ultra-competitive about other things besides the BF3/MW3 drama though.
