No Kinect support for Fable III at launch, says Molyneux

Afraid you’ll work up a sticky, exhausting sweat doing some light yoga in Your Shape? Then why not take a load off by, er, saving and then ruling the entire world?

Speaking during the Engadget Show, Lionhead head lion Peter Molyneux revealed that Fable III’s “wonderfully additive” Kinect support won’t be part of the package when the game launches this October. According to Joystiq, some sort of post-launch patch could be in the cards, but for now, your character’s the only one who’ll be doing goofy dances and pantomiming sock puppets.

Well, you know, unless that’s just something you do. Like, on your own. Don’t worry, though. We won’t judge you. Not so long as you’re holding that gun and screaming at us, anyway.

    @1 But this isn’t ‘older’ as such, as it is designed to work with Kinect, its just the code wont be there at launch.

    This is actually encouraging news for me, because it implies that it’s unlikely that there will be a point in the game where you suddenly feel like you’re missing out on part of the fun if you don’t buy into the Kinect bandwagon, which is really my main concern with Kinect/Move support in new games… at no point do I want to feel like a game is saying to me “Hey, look how much more fun you could be having if you weren’t controller-bound! Get ye to the shops!”

    Of course, I know that sort of thing is inevitable eventually as newer games are released, but I’m glad it (presumably) won’t be happening yet during Fable III.

    It makes sense to be honest, considering it’s actually out a month before kinect.

    hahaha didn’t he say that it will playable with Kinect ? I’m beginning to think that Natal and Kinect are 2 things completly different (welcome to the crual reality).

    Wait, wait, wait. Molyneux is NOT throwing everything but the kitchen sink into a project? He’s actually STOPPING something from getting into his game?

    Clearly the real Molyneux has been kidnapped, and somehow replaced with a sensible game designer.
