The Creative Director of European Studios at Microsoft spoke about a game last night. Yes, remember that Peter Molyneux is indeed CDoES and he was indeed speaking about Fable III.
Strangely, as one of the main hucksters for Natal, Molyneux has stated that the next iteration of the Lionhead game won't be using the controller... much.
It will also have no heads-up display to speak of. While speaking to Wired he declaimed, ?Look at the screen! It?s completely clean! Why do we need the fucking health bar?"
This was apparently the revelation that was going to "piss people off". What the game has, however, is the ability to 'touch' other characters and for your character to morph depending on his or her actions.
"If you kill innocents, it will drip blood; if you use it to protect people it will glow", sums up Molyneux.
The ability to 'touch' other characters also enables you to 'bond' with them. Sounds ideal for Natal use to really get you into the bonding with no extraneous controllers to block the experience going forward.
Not so much.
"What I can say categorically is you play Fable with a controller, it?s not a Natal-based game in any way. But I?m not saying that Natal doesn?t feature in Fable", the great man (and let's face it, with his track record, PM is a great man) tells Gamespot.
