£30 though. Wow.

Is this a port of the mobile version?


It’s pretty close to the full game. Same 3d match engine etc just a simplified version. There’s a big difference between this version and the mobile phone version mate
I get why people are complaining, but I'd make these points:

1. It's a brand new release and the price will come down soon.
2. Football Manager games aren't fully "stable" and patched until around February anyway - and you NEVER get an FM game to coincide with the start of the season. That's just the way it's always been.
3. This is NOT the cut down mobile version, this is almost the full PC game with a few luxury features streamlined or removed.

They should’ve left it for next season. £30 and it’ll be outdated pretty sharpish too.

It's switch though everything is overpriced
Disgusting that it's priced so highly.... 2019 will be out soon and it's the mobile version, should be £5.99 or £8.99 tops.

Apparently it’s not the mobile version it’s much close to the full version..... but still expensive

It's the touch version, which is £19.99.
Should have been priced at £24.99 or the same, but it's not the crappy mobile version.
I'm glad they are bringing FM on the switch but surely it would've made more sense to just wait for the 2019 version? Will be outdated soon
Any good deals on eShop credit around atm? Whats the price like on other region stores, could be cheaper!
This has surely got £16.99 written all over it.

How can it be £30??? Dammmnnnnnn
Wouldn't mind trying a demo with a view to buying the next one. Lol at asking for £30 for this one.
Tempted, despite it being OVERPRICED! I absolutely love Football manager, but haven't picked up this season's yet. Probably far more likely to play it on the Switch than I am on PC.
Is this version realistic? For example is Jack Wilshere made of glass?
Can you buy the league in this version like Guardiola has? Or do you have to prove you can actually manage a football team and not just be extremely fortunate to be employed by clubs who allow you to spend millions upon millions?
This year's game is bad
I’ve got the full Mac/pc version and can play Touch on that. It’s nearly the full version. If I didn’t I would still buy this at £30.
Don't really see massive improvements from 2017. Not worth it imo.
How are people who haven't played the Switch version bleating it's overpriced and akin to the mobile phone version? Neither are true. It's new to the platform so naturally it's priced higher and it's nothing like the mobile phone version, instead nearly identical to the full fat version you'd get on Windows for PC. Buy it or don't.

And £30 for hundreds and hundreds of hours of gameplay.

Agree... buy it or not.

They really do take the p*ss
want this so bad, but so close to the end of the season can not justify it, will wait for a price drop or next season.

Stand to be corrected, but don’t believe there’s any difference in this version and the version for the iPad which was £20-£22 on release
This is overpriced and don’t see the deal on what is an RRP myself

More of a raise awareness seeing as it's a stealth release
Expensive for a game that is old rather wait for 2019 but wouldn't pay £29.99

The 2018/19 version isn't likely to show up as soon as the season starts though - it's normally at least October isn't it?
I remember when the mobile game came out. It was £9 at the time, which was over double what other mobile games were offering.

I bought it anyway because I was a huge fan.

Turned out it was awful, and the price was an absolute joke. A pure insult, a cash grab.

Talked about it on the SI forums and got a load of aggro from Miles Jacobson. To the point of abuse.

That was the end of SI for me. They've always been sanctimonious arseholes with a chip on their shoulder, but the personal attack was a little much for me.

Have you played it? It's nothing like the pc version....... so far it's identical to the amazon fire version.

If ppl want to buy this game for this price then obviously it's upto them, just in my eyes this isn't a hot deal.

So this isn't the same as FM touch for the PC?
Do you have the ability to add in images such as kits, badges, facepacks and the like? Would fix the few licensing issues that SI still has.

It is. Far more complex than the mobile version for OS/Android/Amazon device
I got it last night I thought the price point was high but after playing it all night I can’t complain about the price
The price put me off but may be a buy now
Does anyone know if you can customise the leagues to your liking... so when the new season starts you could move the teams up and down if you want to?
