Available as a download from PlayStation®Store

LONDON (April 30, 2010)– Beautiful Game Studios, part of Square Enix Europe, today announces that Championship Manager 2010 is available for download from

PlayStation? Store for minis on PSP™ and PS3™ for just?4.99. Championship Manager 2010 offers a complete football management simulation experience featuring multiple leagues from across Europe.

“Championship Manager is a game that we’re keen to get into as many people’s hands as possible and we’re delighted to be bringing it to minis,” Said Roy Meredith, Championship Manager General Manager.“Now is the chance for you to prove that you really can do one of the toughest jobs in football. We all say we can, but when the pressure is on, can you really?”

Working closely with development partner Dynamo Games, Championship Manager 2010™ for minis gives players the opportunity to take on the challenge of management in their home or on the go. Managers have total control of their team from buying and selling players, training and tactics right through to dealing with the board and press conferences. It’s an easy job when the going is good, but requires good negotiation skills when the results stop going your way.

"Bringing Championship Manager 2010 to the minis platform has been a great experience for the Dynamo Games team. We have completely re-worked the interface for the minis platform,” added Brian McNicoll, Dynamo Games.“It has been designed with pick-up-and-play in mind so you can get into the game immediately.”

Championship Manager 2010 will be available to download in English, French and Italian from Thursday 29th April.
