Sega has apologised for activation problems with the just-released Football Manager 2009, blaming hiccups on “a combination of issues relating to the printing of keycodes and the huge demand for the game.”
“A solution is in place and is starting to clear the problem, we are confident that the issue will be solved today,” said the publisher in a statement.
“The chances of successful authentication are increasing hourly. At this point consumers still experiencing difficulties are advised to leave a 10 minute gap between authentication attempts.
“Sega apologises for the disappointment caused by the problems with activating the game and asks for Football Manager fans to remain patient.”
Just keep trying. And stop whining. They said they’re sorry.
