Default NBA Live adds 8 FIBA Teams ...

Quote:
“We’re very excited to count FIBA as a close partner,” said Jordan Edelstein, Director of Product Marketing, EA SPORTS. “Adding the FIBA World Championship license to the NBA LIVE franchise, allows us at EA SPORTS to add a new layer of authenticity to the franchise, giving fans all over the world a deeper virtual basketball experience.”

Quote:
All eight international teams are available in Play Now mode, as well as the all new FIBA World Championship Mode* that allows players to compete in an eight team single elimination tournament. Choose from the authentic rosters, teams, and uniforms of each international team, and prove to the world that they have what it takes to win the title.

Live really is stepping it up..but it wont matter if the gameplay and animations still suck...

Team Greece will probably lead the game in dunks, crossovers, and go through the backboard layups

NBA Live plays like a 5 on 5 NBA Jam but they add FIBA teams. Madden is missing basic elements of NFL football but you can Hitstick people.

Add "fluff" but ignore the macro problems. EA Sports at its finest.

Good. I've been wanting this to happen for a long while.

I just hope gameplay improves -meaning when I face the rockets Rafer doesn't ends up with 40 points while yao and tmac have 10pts combined-

Yeah I hate when the computers use only the PG and not the star player. Jason williams had 33 points once and Wade had 15 and Shaq 16.

Jason Williams once had 48 points against me. Shaq and Wade combined for less than 20.

So they couldn't even be bothered to make the FIBA court realistic. Not that it matters though, gameplay will most likely suck again.

I wonder what the signature move of Frederic Weis is going to be.

Why can't 2kSports try to get any licenses? They're so cheap.

This isn't "adding fluff" It's huge for them selling the game in untapped markets. 2k sports will copy that idea next year for sure.

I'm definitely getting 2k8 cuz its a far superior game but if you lived in france and don't know much about the details of either game but that one has your team and the other doesnt which would you buy

Its not their fault their cheap the average game player doesn't appreciate quality and buys Live and Madden every year no matter how much better thier competion from 2ksports is. When you don't have the revenue coming in and already started from a lower standing financially how can they be expected to compete?
