    Slight clarification:

    They are the *NEW* maker of the addictive championship manager game. The original creaters, Sports Interactive, lost the name when they lost the license a couple of years back. SI’s latest game is titled “Football Manager 2007″. Since I haven’t tried Champ Manager since SI stopped making it, I can’t comment on whether or not it’s any good. I can tell you, however, that FM 2007 is simply awesome.

    I mean no disrespect to Beautiful Game Studios, but it’s an important distinction.

  2. JC says:

    In fact, I’ll go one step further and say it’s great for consumers to have competition in the market.

    My question then would be, “how hard has it been to attract the Football Manager die-hard fans that have been with SI for years?”

  3. Jason says:

    I’m with JC…when SI and Champiionship Manager split, I went with SI and have been playing Football Manager 2006 (I didn’t get FM 2007 yet). My impression is that most people followed SI rather than CM.
