Football Manager 2006 announced

Football Manager 2006 announced

The one and only, Miles Jacobson, and his heroes at Sports Interactive has announced that a Xbox 360-version of Football Manager 2006 is under development, and will be released in the beginning of 2006. If sports management ever will be playable on a TV, Miles and his crew are the ones that will make it happen. Some of you may be unfamiliar with the title, but SI were the creators of the fantastic Championship Manager-series and last year had to change publisher and name of the game. First screens inside.

Woah, the 360 will tear through the stat crunching like a hot knife through butter!

Do you ever see any action, or is the game entirely stat pages?

You see the action in an overhead view (http://www.sigames.com/graphics/images/746.jpg) which makes tactical play a lot more visible.

I'd rather play this on a pc with mouse, so I can click on anything rather than scroll between every menu.

If they just could make some cool control scheme, the Xbox-version would be faster than the PC-version.

Like..
Y-Button = Jump to blabla
B-Button = Jump to blabla

Using the triggers for scrolling between different "pages". Using the white/black buttons to just scroll all over the current page, getting to the next menu.

There will of course be some trouble with the transfer market "page", and the squad-"page", but even so, it will still be worth it. I'm sure the 360-version will be faster than the PC-version on the fastest (public) computer out there.

The thing I will be missing though, is transfer patches. I really really REALLY hope Sigames will release official patches via XBL, and that people can release their own.

    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Well that's good that you can charge the console while it's in handheld mode via a cable. (4 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @droezelke: The last time they did that was with the Gamecube, which was noticable more powerful than the PS2. the machine was not a big success and they dropped out of the performance race. (6 minutes ago)

    Melmoth the 32GB internal storage will limit the use of digital downloads and distribution. Same as the Wii U it seems, while games will continue to grow in size. (14 minutes ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: Yes, if Nintendo would listen to their fans, their would be a console as powerfull or better than the PS4. But they keep failing to understand that. (14 minutes ago)
