Lionhead’s next Fable game, Fable III, due out sometime in 2010, might use Microsoft’s motion-sensing technology.
Project Natal, the technology in question, first announced at E3 2009, could see its way to the role-playing-game in one way or another according to a recent interview with the Lionhead boss.
Molyneux, the master of hype and equivocation, when responding to a interviewer who said Natal would not be used in Fable III, said “I didn’t say that.” Oh here we go.
“I am going to say it’s going to use a controller,” he continued, “But I’ve never said it’s not going to use Natal. And obviously what would probably happen if I started talking about this is you would see a little red dot appear moving on my forehead. And then as I would start to speak the words then there would be a shot, gunfire, and I would be assassinated.”
Molyneux went on to say “Do you really think … knowing me … I wouldn’t want to use something like Natal? I mean that’s just mad, man.”
Does anyone out there want motion-control in Fable III? If properly implemented, like anything, it could work, but it’d have to be damn impressive to sway my mind.
