Why cant AAA titles design tech like this for racing games?

I thought it was common knowledge, they use real cars in AAA games, and car companies don't allow the developers to show their cars smashed up, they want their cars to always look good.

Yup. And honestly even though it looks cool with crashing physics, I don't play games like Gran Turismo to crash. I would much rather have real cars than awesome crash physics.

Is it normal for car companies to not allow their cars to get smashed up or is that just Ferrari?

Yeah... I've been hearing these things for years, and it seems to be true. As cool as I think it would be to have true damage reflected from crashes in games, the reason we don't get that isn't so much about technological capabilities as it is licensing issues. I do wish *someone* could convince car companies to loosen up just once for a realistic, proper car sim including realistic damage.

Why would AAA devs make a driving game where it feels like the car's wheels are made of wood?

Project cars doesn't have good damage modeling and it's still in alpha, but it has some nice wrecks - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa6ZoJ1xc00

But people would NEVER want to buy a car they saw get wrecked in a video game!!

What gets me is cars are licensed to movies and get blown to hell all the time. Why can't games come up with the same licensing deals? :P
