    Default SI Towers After The 30th

    I wonder what it's like at the SI office after the 30th? The game has hit the shops and the patch is uploaded, is it then like a normal work place would be on xmas eve or like school on the last day of term? I know there would lots of forum questions to answer but they could be done from home. I'm sure most of the guys need about 2 weeks solid sleep anyway.
    So if they do have a end of term booze up, CHEERS SI!

    Patch #2 I suspect. Maybe a poll for the biggest forum strop in the first week.

    Or possibly the initial discussions about what is going to be in FM2011.

    They will likely plan for patch #2 and have a brief discussion about when to start discussing FM2011. Also they will work on other areas, FMLive or console versions.

    No different to now - I'll still be away on a PR tour, people will be on the forums helping people out, some will be working on patch 2, some will be working on already agreed stuff for FM2011, some will be writing up feature ideas, and we'll be preparing for the "post mortem" meeting and the features meetings that will be going on as soon as the PR tour is finished.

    We don't have a long holiday for all or anything like that.

    What does that tour entail? Strictly business? or can you take in some leisure time and maybe catch a game or two?

    Meh. Miles, get the 1st patch out then go on the lash with the rest of SI. Judging by the demo, its going to be by far the best out of the box version for a long while! You guys should let your hair down

    I see one of these PR things the other day via FMview on Twitter, I think Miles was in Greece, quite entertaining and interesting.

    Strictly business. Fly somewhere, catch up on email, check out the forums, sleep, press conference, interviews, go back to airport, fly somewhere else

    I think you missed out all of the 'FMing' while travelling and waiting for flights etc.

    I get to Portugal tomorrow evening, am being picked up from the airport, have a dinner with our distributor, then a press conference there on Wednesday.

    That's all I know though, as I was told earlier that it's been moved to a bigger venue than originally planned due to more people wanting to come than was originally expected. Don't even know where I'm staying yet

    I Still playing hungry hippos now. All the top managers do, Megson took down moyes just before their game. He was the green hippo because he likes beans.

    I wish! Airports tend to involve doing email and being on the phone - it's pretty busy at the moment what with the game out on Friday, so still lots to do away from the PR touring.

    Flights tend to involve Pixeljunk Monsters on the PSPGo and Sudoku - my laptop battery is a bit poor, and I can't get FMH2010 for PSPGo until Friday. Monsters is highly recommended though, on PSP or PS3.

    Miles, this is just a guess, but I think you'll be able to upgrade after the first week or two of FM10 sales Thanks again for the best football game around!

    Its quite an interesting thread this. I always like hearing a bit of what goes on behind the scenes and at least it shows people your not just sitting around throwing screwed up bits of paper into waste paper bins like some may think

    Even no champagne on release day ? That's disappointing.

    I guess, they will take a short break, then leave a skeleton team for working on the patches for FM10 and the rest will start working on FM11.
    Isn't that the way the gaming industry work?
