Football Manager Classic 2014 Vita bundle announced

Vita 2000 comes with a download code to redeem the game through PlayStation Store

Sony and Sports Interactive have announced a Football Manager Classic 2014 Vita hardware bundle.

Featuring a black Vita 2000 and a download code to redeem the game through PlayStation Store, the bundle will hit stores on April 17, almost a week after the Football Manager Classic 2014 release date of April 11. Pricing has yet to be confirmed.


Announced in August 2013, the title is the first in the series' history to let owners carry on a single continuous game, whether at home on their computer or on the go with Vita (or vice versa), thanks to its cloud save features. FMC 2014 is also the first mobile game to feature the series' 3D match engine.

FMC is a streamlined mode that was added to FM 2013 on PC and Mac. The Classic component of Football Manager 2014 is already available for PC, Mac and Linux.

FMC 2014 has been co-developed by Sports Interactive, its sister development studio Hardlight and Sheffield-based Little Stone Software, with support from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Shahid Ahmad, senior business development manager at PlayStation Europe, said last month: "For years, the dream of many Football Manager fans has been to be able to enjoy a full version of their favourite game wherever they are. Sports Interactive and SEGA have realised that dream on the Vita, and we at PlayStation are delighted with their ground-breaking results."
