    Championship Manager is not the same as the old Championship Manager, it is infact a shit re-hash and one of the worst games i've ever played.

    Wait a few weeks and get Football Manager 2006 on the Xbox360 or you can grab it on the PC now.

    no need to wait - its out now! get in!

    right then - has anyone played it on the 360 and can give me a quick review? hows the setup with a pad rather than a mouse etc? are the loading times shit (shouldnt be - it apparently uses the 360 hdd to stream from rather than disc)?

    cheers

    They didn't lose SI as developers.
    Sports Interactive were the original developers who went with several distribution companies before settling with the long term Eidos publishing deal.
    When the last CM4 updated version was released, SI announced that they were splitting from Eidos, that Eidos retained the rights over the Chamionship Manager name, that SI held the rights over the actual game engine and that they had acquired the rights for the (rather unsuccessful) game Football Manager.

    Football Manager is now the original game, improved, with a new name.
    Championship Manager is now a complete pile of crap, as you know.

    This might seem like I'm being picky, but I just wanted people reading your post to understand that the people who were behind the best football management sim are still behind the best football management sim, only it has a new name.

    well said and couldnt agree with you more

    i would hope that followers of the series will respect this and keep buying the FOOTBALL MANAGER games rather than the CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER ones.

    i think this was reflected in the last 2 releases though - football manager outsold champ manager by 3-1. it proves you can lose the licensed name - but what made the game fantastic is still with the original developers and the engine and football manager carries on the best game in the world!

    and i didnt think you were picky - my previous posts were badly worded!!
