Molyneux: Fable II co-op was only possible thanks to Live's structure

Speaking to Videogamer, Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has claimed that Fable II's online co-op has only been possible because of the way Live's structured, and that PS3's online offering isn't as "mature" as 360's.

"The thing I love about the 360 more than anything is nothing to do with the hardware, it's all to do with Live. Live is still underexploited for a game mechanic," he said.

"Some of the stuff in Fable II we're doing with co-op is only possible because of the way that Live is structured. I love playing around with that stuff as a designer.

"Whereas PS3 doesn't seem to be quite so mature on that side. They haven't got quite the same infrastructure and service but, you know, yeah, I'd love to get games on every platform."

More through the link. As we reported this morning, Molyneux's aim is to have online co-op patched into Fable II on its launch day.
