question ATB : Why Burnout games have only a “look-like” car

    They need to pay the manufacturers in order to use them and the creators of burnout probaly didn’t want to pay.

    It depends on the maker of the video game. They need to get licensing (costs $ $ $ ) and approval from the auto companies to use the car brands. They may not be able to afford this or the auto companies may not approve it.

    I’m not too sure about this but i heard that it has to do with the fact that by using brand name cars you would have to go through the trouble of asking the company if they can use their cars. Then the discussion of paying for featuring them may come up and gaming companies wouldn’t want to pay.

    i think its less about the money and more about how car companies dont want to see their cars blown up and thrashed to pieces in a video game. bad rep. :D DD
