    You'll have to wait if you want your physical farts to translate into an action in Fable III, according to Lionhead Studios head honcho Peter Molyneux. The designer has confirmed with Joystiq that the third game in the RPG series will not launch with Kinect support. It will be added in later, perhaps, as the studio polishes up said support.

    Molyneux explained that its Kinect component wasn't up to the quality that Lionhead needed it to be at, thus the delay. He yet again didn't specify what we'll be able to do with the hands-free controls, leaving us with no concrete impression on what's actually causing the hold-up.

    No Caption Provided
    You already knew the game wouldn't support Kinect immediately. Fable III ships before the controller does in late October. But, it's sure odd that one of the early and more vocal supporters of Kinect tech won't ship his own game with support out of the box. You'd figure it would.

    Joystiq spoke with Microsoft PR on the matter, and it confirmed that it can't talk about the Kinect stuff in the game. For now, we'll have to continue to wonder if physical-to-digital farting is truly possible.

    I doubt there's much audience overlap anyway...
     
    people who might care will probably get kinect at some later point after there are more games that use it

    I was glad to read this headline on the main page. Let the family oriented games muck around with Kinect. I am perfectly happy slashing dudes in half while sitting comfortably in my recliner with a wireless controller.

    Peters vision for Kinect is the only reason anyones ever going to buy this thing. 
     because with the current 360 crowd its just a huge miss with the really uninspired lauch games. 
    Really disappointed....

    To be fair, the release date of Fable III precedes the release date of Kinect. It makes sense it wouldn't be functional at launch.

    I can't see the Kinect being properly used for Fable 3 other then maybe navigating the game map with your hands. But if Molyneux ever decided to do a Black and White 3 using Kinect so your hand was the in game hand then that would cool.

    Were you seriously expecting something earth shattering from Kinect. Now I'm kinda excited about Kinect but I'm also pretty sure the games wont be anywhere near as good as the non kinect games on the 360. 
    And I'm pretty sure that among the 30 somethign million 360 owners most of them are  into other games then MW2 or Halo. I will infact go so far as to say that the large majority of 360 owners are casual gamers. 
    And my the way MS is marketing Kinect I would say that they are more into expanding the user base then selling to the exsisting one. 
     
    Its fair if you don't like the Kinect but don't go thinking that the rest of the 360 userbase is exactly like you and only play the same games that you do because hardcore gamers are in the minority and most 360 owners(and infact PS3 and Wii owners) are children under 12.

    That actually sounds like a Kinect game that would please the "serious" gamers. Me included.

    Like you care if Kinect is in Fable 3 or not. I think it's funny when people complain about conceptual features "missing." I feel like some people would think Star Wars sucked if they found out a scene or character got cut. "But he was in the original script! They promised!"..

    Kinect in Fable would be totally weird, not sure how it would work exactly. It's probably going to only work for some side games that don't matter to the story at all.
