Sega Europe and Sports Interactive today announced the Xbox 360 debut of their well-received soccer management series. Scheduled for release in Europe next spring, Football Manager 2006 will feature hundreds of divisions across 50 countries, not to mention 250,000 players and staff.
"Finally a home console system is being released that can do Football Manager justice", said Miles Jacobson, managing director of Sports Interactive, no doubt referring to the Xbox 360's high-definition graphic capabilities, which should make for some dynamite-looking player rosters and spreadsheets.
Beyond its soccer series of management sims, Sports Interactive has also enjoyed success with its recent NHL Eastside Hockey Manager sim. A PC and Mac version of Football Manager 2006 is slated for release in early November, with a PSP edition hitting shelves about the same time as the Xbox 360 edition.
