Football Manager Classic 2014 Will Be Scoring a Sporty Vita Bundle

Posted by Kell Andersen

And it's coming soon

If you fancy yourself a football fan, but aren't so keen on the wildly controversial exercise side of the sport, perhaps Football Manager Classic 2014 will be right up your alley. As the title suggests, this management sim will allow you to train and foster your very own team. What's more, developer Sports Interactive has recently announced on the PlayStation Blog that the game will also be taking to the pitch in an exclusive PlayStation Vita bundle.

Releasing on 17th April, the bundle comes packed with a slim edition of Sony's handheld, as well as a 4GB memory card and a voucher with a PlayStation Network code for the game. There's no word on a price yet, and unsurprisingly, North America isn't even mentioned in the post. While this is all well and good, this Australian reporter isn't entirely sure what the UK-based studio means by "football". Perhaps it's referring to the popular sport of soccer, but without further investigation, there's really no way to know.

Is this the bundle that'll convince you to pick up a Vita, or will you be sending it to the sin bin? Kick off in the comments section below.

This game is a big deal for the UK/European market. I'm not convinced it's going to do as well as SCEE seems to be hoping, though.

@Big-Boss It's still the best portable version of the game available. (Well, assuming it delivers on what's been promised.) The late announcement is a bit odd, but it could catch on in Europe. I generally agree that it probably won't, though.

I will buy it, since I got bored of the PSP iterations that were almost the same for some years. This game will surely sell in the majority of Europe. I am waiting to win the Greek Superleague with Panathinaikos and drop Olympiacos on the second place.

@get2sammyb Ahhhhh, that's much better! To be honest, I'm more of a cricket man myself. Of course in Australia, we call it "Batt-ball."

I'll be getting the game cos I'm desperate for my team to get back to the Premier League again & this seems the only way of achieving that in the foreseeable future.

Already ordered my copy. I love footie manager sims, I'm kind of bored of Fifa entirely now and don't see myself buying it again for many many years. I hope the game doesn't disappoint but that bundle is stupid. They announce it now? Good luck with that.

If it plays like a proper en=try in the series and not like those wonky PsP iterations Im all for it (I remember playing nothing but Football Manager 2007 for about 4 months on Xbox360 back in the day) This bundle is a surprising one though. Wouldn't expect Sony to align itself with a niche footy series but they do like to surprise on the odd occasion.
