Love him or hate him, Peter Molyneux is a major figure in global entertainment. His habit of “upselling” his projects has earned him the nickname Six Gun Pete, but we found the Lionhead boss in relaxed form in Los Angeles last night. We spoke with him after going hands-on with Fable III.
The Microsoft Games Studios Europe creative director talked about Fable, his relief at Kinect’s formal reveal, and why Milo isn’t on the showfloor at E3 this year – to most people, any way.
Warning: Mid-way through the interview, Molyneux dropped a big Fable II spoiler. You’ve been warned.
Hit the break for our full chat with him.

Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has revealed there might just be more to Milo & Kate than first imagined.

Peter Molyneux’s told Techradar that Natal-based Milo & Kate will herald a “whole new area of interaction” in games, with focus coming back on the player as opposed to just being on the screen.
“What we found while making Milo, is that part of the skill of designing this whole new experience is in making people comfortable with the fact that they can be seen,” he said,
“That things can recognise them and see them and have a relationship with them. And we’ve been talking about that for years and years, you know, emotional engagement in gaming… ‘are games art?’… “how can we make people cry and laugh?”
“And then you begin to realise that this is a whole new area of interaction. Which really and truly has hardly even been dreamt of by science fiction writers. So I wasn’t at all surprised by some of those reactions at E3. But it is down to our skill as designers to make sure that people don’t feel creeped out by it.”
Full thing through the link. There’s no date on the game as yet. Natal’s expected towards the end of next year.

Frontier’s David Braben, creator of Elite and the upcoming sequel to LostWinds, has defended Lionhead’s Milo & Kate and the reputed “smoke and mirrors” aspect of it.
“I think there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of with good, complex smoke and mirrors,” he told Eurogamer during Develop. “With all of these things, we’re building interesting worlds, and there are so many different ways you can do that. Milo & Kate showed some of that, and some of the things we’re working on will show some of that too.
“There are so many different dimensions to it: I often bore on about film, but it shows how much more there is out there that we haven’t touched yet in the game space.”
Braben also went on to discuss how AI in games have improved by “degrees we haven’t noticed.”
