Miles Jacobson, the man responsible for Football Manager’s recent iPhone success and Sports Interactive studio director, has told Develop that “it’s unlikely [we ’ll] see full blown PC and Mac games on the iPad.”

Talking to Develop in a feature about the prospects of the iPad, Jacobson seemed to dash any hopes that a full version of the Football Manager title would be coming to the device.

“[The iPad is] a giant iPod that happens to have some features available that make it its own platform, particularly in the GUI side of things,” he said.

“What it isn’t is a home computer. It’s unlikely they’ll see full blown PC and Mac games on the device.”
