Need For Speed Calls Out Toyota For Keeping Supra Out Of Game

Need for Speed calls out Toyota for keeping Supra out of game

The Toyota Supra is one of the most hotly-anticipated sports cars of 2019, and the 86 (pictured) remains a fan favorite in spite of its age and its lack of a turbo, but neither car will be included in the "Need for Speed Heat" game scheduled to come out in November 2019. There are 13 available BMWs, 13 Nissans, a Polestar and even a 1975 Volvo 242 DL, but not a single Toyota. Asked why on Twitter, Toyota's British division responded "not there," adding "you can find our cars in 'GT Sport,' which doesn't promote illegal street racing." The grimacing face emoji drove the point home. It didn't take long for Need for Speed's official account to respond with "pfft nerds." 

pfft nerds — Need for Speed (@NeedforSpeed) August 20, 2019 Someone on Toyota's British social media team must have gotten an earful, because the tweet was quickly deleted and replaced by a much more formal reply. Toyota explained most of the men and women in its social media team fell in love with cars by playing video games, and it wants to see as many of its nameplates star in as many titles as possible, but it's not currently planning on granting licensing rights to anyone other than Gran Turismo Sport. The thread seemingly pins the blame on legal arrangements, not on a quest to fight the democratization of illegal street racing. While the Supra and the 86 are sitting out the game, enthusiasts will have 120 cars at their fingertips when it launches, and the roster will grow when downloadable content becomes available. Toyota fans will have several consolation prizes to choose from, including a 2017 Acura NSX, a 2009 Honda S2000, a 2017 Infiniti Q60S, 1996 and 2015 variants of the Mazda MX-5 Miata and a Nissan 370Z.

Nintendo Explains Why They're Still Keeping The 3DS Around

With the Nintendo Switch offering up a bigger display and more powerful hardware, it made sense that many believed that the Switch was designed to replace not just the Wii U, but also potentially the 3DS due to the fact that it could be taken around just as easily as it could be plugged into a TV.

However Nintendo has continued to maintain its 3DS lineup of hardware and also games, and recently in an interview with Kotaku, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime explained why they are continuing to keep the 3DS around, suggesting that it was a more affordable device compared to the Switch, and that it would appeal to the younger crowd.

Sony : Keeping Obstacles Within Your Frame Can Be A Good Thing

Sony : Keeping obstacles within your frame can be a good thingI’m sure many photographers can sympathize with the plight of ever-maneuvering ourselves so we can omit any obstacles from our frame. Whether we’re contorting in some undiscovered yoga position or have our tripods defying gravity with the way they’re being balanced, we go to great lengths to remove obstacles.
