    Has anyone seen or heard of a Football Manager Sim under development ?

    I think that it could port well on the ipod touch.

    File size would not really be that much of an issue and the CPU is more than capable.

    Any rumours out there ?

    Gameloft get on it, bring your Football Manager 2009 to the ipod :) it is on all other phones Sony Ecrisson Sagem Nokia etc.

    Why not Apple iphione and ipod touch ?

    I have done a search on a few websites there would be a market for it

    Any information gratefully received.

    Thanks All

    Try emailing GameLoft, it may be in the pipeline then.

    Football manager games are very processor intensive. They are basically huge number crunching databases. It would have to be a very stripped down version of fm2009

    That is partly true, but considering old football manager games used to run on old 486 PC's I don't think we have a problem here.

    The processor power of the ipod touch and even the iphone is more than a most handhelds out there in the market place according to this forum.

    And if the format can be support by age old phones by Nokia Sagem and Sony etc then why not Apple, the hardware should be more than capable.

    According the Gameloft forums people are enjoying the playability and depth and there doesnt seems to be any haters out there at present (except for a few bugs) according to my brief research on their website.

    I will keep looking ;)

    Also they are only processor intensive in between turns, so you could easily progress bar that.

    True. But the OP was talking about FM2009. The PSP port is a pretty basic version of the PC version. I can't imagine the app store version being any different.

    Sorry I am not being clear Football Manager 2009 is available to download to various held held units and older specified phone on the Gameloft website. So there is already a well played version of Football Manager 2009 being actively used on older models of hardware with lower and slower specs. The forums for the game talk about youth training and porting directly from Real Football 2009 so if this a stripped own version of the computer version it still has depth and lots of playability.

    So why not tap into one of the newest and fastest growing platforms out there ie the iphone and ipod touch.

    We have had Real Football 2009 - Why not the Football Manager version?

    Seems a bit strange

    Hopefully Gameloft will get back to me:)

    I would be very interested in this type of app

    Now that is something I could get behind and spend good money for.

    Yeah a football manager game would be nice. :D

    I used to love the Championship Manager games but Gameloft's Real Football: Manager Edition '09 would do, as long as the DB was reasonably up-to-date and you have a good amount of options as their site seems to suggest you get with the Mobile version.

    Gameloft have still not back to me but I would presume that the launch of a polished Football Manager 2009 game for the ipod would fall in to the soon to be created $19.99 dollar premium game catagory. So release is on hold until then.

    Just my opinion
