    I dont think thats enough to prove that it hasnt been changed to Dino for the movie. :(  I hope they use the name Mirage in DOTM movie but the game can get away with still using Mirage. DOTM movie might still use Dino. :(

    Theres one other thread Axel, in a different category not discussing specifically mirage.

    Well I dont know, surely if it had truely been changed to Dino couldnt they just get high moon to quickly change it before release? Yet here we have the name MIRAGE being used for the first time post-dino

    But if its a simple name change and he is the same character why would they not go crazy for them to change it. Especially as he has his own level in a prequel to the movie, surely building upon his character and background?

    Just doesnt make sense to me. If it got changed, change it

    Nelson is sitting back, laughing his fucking ass off at how angry people are over this "Dino" hoax.

    Because the game and movie are two entirely different things, there's no point to go through the game and change things only for a name-change. You do realize how much work that is, and the game is due to release soon, so putting in the extra work and money wouldn't be worth it.

    But I might be wrong and his name is really Mirage, I'm just saying that the name in the game doesn't matter at all.

    Perhaps the game also works the same as the comics and novels.


    I'm not saying I defend Nelson and what he said, but its still possible.

    Fair points guys. I dont know, I really hope Nelson is bullshitting and saw this as further proof. Ah well he'll still be sick in the game.

    Gonna confuse a lot of kids who buy it then see the movie though if he's dino haha

    If Nelson is lying, that would be a shitty thing to lie about considering he said the name was based off someone's dead son. Another reason why I think Nelson isn't lying..

    We need to see if videogame Mirage turns into the actual Ferrari from the movie first, the fact that his alt mode pictures are blank on the website doesn't help.

    And judging from the website, (off topic) Sideswipe is the ONLY exclusive Preorder, right?

    And the Mirage info?

    Ratchet is an exclusive as well.

    Also, people, if Nelson is to be believed (and I'm not saying I believe him) than him being Mirage in the game makes sense. The whole point of the Dino thing is that he's ONLY Dino in the movie. He has to be Mirage everywhere else because Ferrari owns the character, and have only let him appear in the movie.

    the ferrari badge is no where to be seen so far. you can see the italia alt mode in the "bumblebee multiplayer trailer" though. so it is EXACTLY the same character.

    i just find it so pointless...its really gonna irritate me everytime i hear his name if dino is said in the film as a serious name. thank god the game is still mirage

    I don't think so
    They use different descriptions

    Sideswipe
    Available exclusively through GameStop pre-orders. Character playable in multi-player only on these systems. For a limited time only. While supplies last. Code received at time of purchase.

    Ratchet
    Immediate access through Amazon pre-orders. Character playable in multi-player only on these systems. For a limited time only. While supplies last. Code received at time of purchase.

    It seems to me like Ratchet is unlockable (ex Iron Spider for SD), while Sideswipe is NOT available except through DLC, (ex Cosmic Spider for SD) at least thats what I think
