Gonna be a flood of 'I lost 1-0 and the xG was 4.00 to 0.01' posts all over the SI forums.

Not being able to have any of the correct logos in the Xbox version would drive me crazy. The fake competition names are less of an issue, but the big ugly logos are a no go for me.

Who knew the Invisible Man was into football?

Will be interesting to see how the next gen Xbox versions especially compare to the average PC. No PS equivalent is a little strange, even if SI have been in bed with MS on the whole gamepass thing for the last few years as least. No sign of the Stadia logo amongst that lineup at the end, that lasted long then.

It isn't the first time it's happened, but I can't imagine playing Football Manager on a console. Using a controller to navigate the menus sounds like such a pain.

My first one was FM07 on the Xbox 360 and it was so difficult to play. It created my overuse of the assistant manager's automatic team selection because manually swapping players around took so damn long. I still suffer from it to this day just from habit.

I definitely had a Football Manager on Xbox 360 at one point. It wasn't as bad as feared with the navigating. Stick worked like a mouse and d-pad snapped between directly between the nearest link in whatever direction. I got used to it pretty quick!

As someone that doesn't particularly give a shit if the logos are right, if it's on Game Pass it's a no-brainer but if I had to buy it I wouldn't.

So no new features then?

There were loads of new features in that video - revamped press conferences, talking to agents about available players, better player conversations, manager body language during the game mattering, much more in-depth analysis, potentially a fully licensed Premier League(?!) or at the very least Leicester City.

For a minute of video that's a fair number of features and enough to get my excited certainly.

QFE. What more did you want from them!

Seems more like a lick of paint to me than anything else.

Are you really expecting after 27 games for them to radically changed it?

until they've brought in gambling on your own games, match fixing and transfer bungs they'll never be able to match the king of all management sims - Ultimate Soccer Manager.

Does it need anything else? Radical change isn't going to happen in FM and I don't see why it should. It's an excellent game refined over literally decades now.
