Rumour: Football Manager 2014 Substituting PSP for Vita

Soccer strategy simulation could be sprinting onto Sony's latest system
If you prefer your footie games to be riddled with statistics rather than bicycle kicks, you may already be doing a Mourinho over the rumours that Football Manager 2014 could be picking sides with the PlayStation Vita. Online retailer ShopTo.net listed the title for the handheld earlier this afternoon, before pulling the page. Fortunately, we managed to nab a screen grab of a cached version of the product listing via the store’s Brazilian subsidiary, which is embedded above.
Football Manager has a long history on the PlayStation Portable, with last year’s entry deploying in late November. When asked about the possibility of a Vita version in September, developer Sports Interactive said that it would be willing to support the platform if the sales of the system picked up. The console’s still struggling a year later, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Sony and SEGA have managed to strike some kind of deal. If real, this could be officially announced as early as GamesCom.
