Yeah that's true they did make a point of the fact that they were never truely happy with the interface on the consoles. I played all 3 versions myself, and I didn't find it too bad, but then again I knew the PC version and it did still take me a little while to get used to it. Can imagine somebody relatively new to the game would have struggled a lot getting to grips with navigating the menus. The experience was also stripped down aswell due to the lack of any PC modding which some find to be a key part of the computer based version for some people. Downloading the official strips, badges and player photos along with database editing and updating just wasn't possible on the console versions.
That would be quite cool though. A simple little manager game with enough features and players to give it some depth, but not overload would be pretty good if they could get it on XBLA and PSN. I think this Premier Manager might be along those lines actually, but I unfortunately don't have a PS3, so I can't check.
