Just a quicky...will this be two player on one machine or will it need game sharing?

One player only I'm afraid - we'll be looking into multi-player options for next years version, the main thing for this years release is to get the gameplay as realistic and playable as possible.

Brief details of the PSP game can be found on its softography section here:

http://www.sigames.com/softography.php?type=view&id=21 (http://www.sigames.com/softography.php?type=view&amp;id=21)

The aim is to make a playable, realistic and fun game - akin to our third series of football management games.

It hasn't got a 2D match view in it - this is simply because the PSP in its current form (ie. not running at full processor power because of the battery limitations) can't handle the full FM PC match simulation (you'd be talking 3-5 seconds per match simmed, waaay too slow imho).

With this in mind rather than give people an unrealistic 2D view we decided to give people a realistic match engine backed up by a strong text commentary.

This has several advantages, it keeps the gameplay nice and quick (which suits the handheld situation where you might only have half an hour to play while commuting for example) and also means the simulation times are physically nice and fast.

Sounds promising. But does this mean you can't play Football Manager in 'normal' mode with your mates? As it says you can't sell or buy players =( Is it just tournaments & such?

The game isn't patchable but has had a very stringent testing, both from ourselves and Sega but also from Sony.

The first version won't be skinnable - subsequent versions we are hoping to enable as skinnable (basically the first version 'would' be skinnable but we haven't been able to jump through the hoops with Sony to ascertain what requirements they have for such things).

MD put the wrong link in the sticky, the press release is article 1203 not 1202 http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I don't suppose you will be able to do it in this version but in future, will you be able to swap games you start on the pc or psp and continue to play the game on the other system. ie I start a game on the pc then go on holiday but instead of having to wait until i get home I can download the save game to my psp and continue the game while away then once home swap the savegame back to the pc and continue and vice versa.

No not on this version - one thing I'm considering for the sequel is making a 'PC client' for the game so you can swap between the two (bearing in mind that FM PSP will still differ from the full FM PC game so this client would be the PSP game on PC).
