Default NBA Live 08 to feature 8 international teams

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/810/810495p1.html

WTF?? where is Lithuania?? they added Germany and China instead of adding the number 5 team in Fiba rankings? WTF!!! if their gonna add 8 teams then go in order 1. USA 2. Argentina 3. Spain 4. Serbia 5. Lithuania 6. Italy 7. Greece 8. France but instead they skip 4 and 5 and go to 9 and 11. Why the f*** did they do that? they might as well add like india or thailand there too. and why not Canada? the game is made in there but they add #11 china instead

Well, it is clear, you make a product, you have to sell it. I don't see many people buying this videogame in Serbia or Lithuania, but a lot of potential buyers in China and Germany if their team is there. It is no more than bussiness, don't be surprised if they don't care about FIBA rankings.

Both of you guys are right, but still if they were gonna do that, then why skip 4 and 5? they coulda got rid of italy or france since both of them are below the serbians and lithuanians.

Again, it's just business, they still will sell much more in Italy and France than in Serbia and Lithuania. I would like to have these teams also, but they have to care about selling, not about better teams.
