Nearly half of FIFA Euro 2012 DLC teams are unlicensed


Nearly half of the the 53 international teams featured in the new FIFA Euro 2012 DLC are unlicensed and feature faked player names and false strips. (EA, FIFA 12, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Update UPDATE: EA - "The national teams in Euro 2012 are a combination of teams officially licensed or covered by our FIFPro license, and generic teams. While we would like to have every national team officially licensed, of the 53 national teams in the game, 29 are licensed. The remaining ones are generic.
"The inclusion of national teams is negotiated between EA and each national football association, which we need to license individually. Licensing teams and leagues is a business decision based on market size and limited resources, and within these parameters, we were not able to negotiate an agreement with every football association to have their national team included within the game."

Yeah, seems like they should have made that known before they started selling it.

"EA has confirmed that 24 out of the 53 teams featured in the Euro 2012 expansion are "generic" unlicensed squads."

Damn, that's not a small number. I imagine some people are going to be pretty annoyed after purchasing then finding out this.
