I really liked Rugby Challenge '05 (?) on the PS2, and the first Rugby Challenge on the PS3, but Challenge 2 did feel like more of an update that new game (to be fair pretty much only difference was the squad line ups).

I have pointed out to the wife that Rugby 15 is on the PS4 in Jan, and that I currently don't have a PS4 (and I am hoping she doesn't notice it is on the PS3), so hopefully I can win her round to letting me upgrade.

A new game every year, or even Lions/RWC years would be great, but only if they do upgrade the game each time, and don't roll out the same product with a different cover, and a few different names in the squads.

Yes HB did also make the RWC11 game. Which sucked as it only had a World Cup!

Rugby 08 is the best game since Jonah Lomu. HB have torn up RWC11 and looked back and built from scratch a new rugby game which will include a World Cup (but no All Blacks and Wallabies licence), Top 14 and French Div 2, Guiness Pro12, Aviva Prem all fully licensed. I think I have read that there will be NO career mode which sucks, plus the graphics don't look upto much...but to support a rugby game for next gen consoles I will be purchasing. Next years title will have a career and more licenses hopefully.

As for Rugby Challenge, it was great graphically, the career was fun (but sucked with the limited signings you could make. It was just rubbish for game play IMO.

Rugby League Live 2 is superb. Game play and graphics similar to Rugby Challenge with no restrictions of signings in career as long as a player was out of contract in the NRL or Super League you could go for him....players could cross over.

Rugby Challenge 2 has been confirmed the last rugby game by the studio that made it. But they still own the licence for wallabies and AllBlacks and the NZ and AUS S15 sides. Maybe next year HB will have bought them and created a nice little career mode for Rugby 16 (which is a game that will be developed).

Reviews for Rugby Union Team Manager has been slated. 

Rugby 15 looks like a fun game to play when its out in January/Feb. Graphics are nowhere near what they should be, but game play wise, its meant to be solid. This is a first in a series from HB Studios, who made EA Rugby 08. But lacking in funding, it looks like they are taking a bit at the time. It seems Game play has been the main focus, and licensing of as much rugby teams as possible. Next years no doubt, with this platform in place, they can build to a better game graphically next year whilst keeping the game play solid as well. I'll be buying to give them support to keep delivering a rugby game year after year which HB have confirmed is happening. It looks like this is the first in a long series which is great IMO.

And on the Pro-Rugby Manager trailer they show the pro-12 sides and move across one by one, but then it cuts tot eh Avivia Prem before they get to us.

Yeah decision made, Rugby Union Manager is on order.

Rugby 15 has been delayed until January but you do seem to be able to buy it in the xbox store online, not sure about Playstation, £45 on the xbox one store which is relatively cheap for xbox one/PS4

PRM 2015 it's a really s###t, I Have it, a really delusion...Tomorrow will be out an other managerial game, Rugby Union Team Manager, developed from a free version game, Rugby Union Manager...seems nice, but before to buy it, I will waiting for the comments...

pro rugby manager 2015 seems to have good potential,with real squads and set moves.

Used to have a rugby game on the amiga when i was a kid where you could write your own set moves for the backs. Used to have huge success with the colin stephens,ieuan switch bac a la Aus.

Personally I've always found online modes annoying. There always seems to be a lag between what I'm trying to do and what is happening

No online mode is pretty disappointing, especially these days.

EA Sports just published the rugby games. HB Studios made the majority of titles just with EA backing.
The last rugby game HB Studios made was the World Cup game few years back. whilst there was no licence for hardly any teams, game play was ok ish...nowhere near perfect.
 
Sidhe had fantastic licences for a rugby game and wasnt bad at all with Jonah Lomu Rugby Challnege 1 and 2 considering they had nowhere near the money that EA gave HB for past titles. Sidhe have more or less stated that they will not follow up with Rugby Challenge 3 so it looks like they have struck a deal with HB Studios for the french / aviva / pro 12 as well as world cup (which they already had apart from australia and new zealand and one or two other countries.
 
The new release sees EA back as the publisher, but the makers remain the same...hopefully they have a decent budget and have looked at the graphics etc from Sidhes Rugby Challenge and Big Antz Rugby League Live.
 
EA are weary of majorly funding rugby as the audience for it is nowhere near football / nfl etc. hopefully though this will be a good game with a decent career mode!
 
Pro Rugby Manager looks to be interesting. will possibly invest in that!
