ok, is it just me or am i the only one that see's no sense in having a manager game like Football Manager or any other sports managing games on the 360.

Maybe im the only one that isnt willing to fork out £10-20 more for a game that wont even use the power of the 360, just seems very strange.

These types of managers games probably will use the power of the 360 in the future either way I expect it to look much better than any previous gen games then again its not a game i'm expecting so i don't really care.

Keep in mind though there are good and bad games for every console. Some I might like some you might like some we both hate or the ones we both agree on and like equally.

Not all games are about graphics. There is a fairly large demographic of people who like Fantasy Football and the business side of sports.

So games like this are about diversity AND appealing to a broader market of consumers. Remember, the 360 is a platform. There is no rule every game on the system has to push the hardware. As long as their are consumers who own a platform and desire a game it does not matter how much of the system it uses. See: Xbox Live Arcade for proof.

Alas, Football Manager is an EA product that is part of the shady lock out all the competition/hurt consumers movement, so meh. Not interested.

Yeah but, essentially, the main difference the 360 has over the Xbox is the graphics, so why would you basically buy a game for £15 more if its all the same spreadsheet game.

I could understand if it was a total different genre, but a game like this could be ran on a PS1.

Port, Port, Port -- that is the mantra ;)

To be fair, not everyone who has a 360 either (a) owned an Xbox1 or (b) still has their Xbox or (c) if they still have it have it connected to the TV.

"a game like this could be ran on a PS1."

A game with 1/1000 of the leagues, statistics, players, events, transfers etc. maybe. But then that wouldn't be Football Manager 2006 any more would it?

Football Manager is a CPU intensive game and the 360 will slice through Football Manager like a hot knife through butter (ie. between games when it calculates everything going on) it's a title that some people may want to play but not have a PC that makes it worth playing.

Absolutely, and you can't even use HALF of the leagues in FM06 when you play it, you have to chose only a few. So it sure is a CPU problem.

I don't like the save system though. The PC saves takes 300 MB just a couple of seasons in.
