Sonokong releases Football Manager 2005 in Korea


Sonokong announces the Korean release of the highly-anticipated ‘Football manager 2005’ title by Sports Interactive.

In Europe leading UK specialist PC games mags PC Gamer and PC Format have lauded Sports Interactive’s “triumphant” Football Manager 2005. High praise indeed, and accompanied by the magazine’s top gong – the Must Buy Award, which, as stated in the magazine, is only offered to a game they believe “simply has to be played by all fans of the genre”.

To prevent piracy, the largest Korean publisher has decided to release the unique football management game from Sports Interactive on StarForce-protected CDs. This is a special technology by the renown international copy protection provider, which has proved to be effective to withstand the most insidious hacker attacks and reliably protect intellectual property.

This is the third case when the leading Korean publisher uses StarForce. "The protection implementation went smoothly and quick, we have received approval from SEGA Europe and are now ready for the release. Sonokong is excited to use StarForce again”, says Kangwon Lee, the company’s Technical Director.

The game will hit the Korean streets on 10 November.
