Peter Molyneux is something of a gaming visionary, so it comes as no surprise that he might be toying with the idea to include Microsoft's new Project Natal motion control peripheral in the next installment of the Fable franchise. Of course, being the shrewd businessman that he is, Molyneux made sure it was very clear that this is not confirmed as of yet. Speaking to Game Kings, Molyneux clarified...
"I am going to say it's going to use a controller, but I never said it's not going to use Natal...Let me get this absolutely straight: I have not said that we're not going to have Natal in Fable 3. All I have really said is that it is a controller experience but that doesn't mean that there isn't going to be Natal in it..."
However, Molyneux couldn't resist tossing out a cheeky side comment hinting at the possibility.
"Do you really think, knowing me as you may have over the years, that I wouldn't want to use something like Natal? I mean that's just mad, man."
Mad indeed. Considering we don't even know what Fable III will be all about, it's hard to speculate about anything at this point. However, if you put the hints and rumors together, one can assume we will be playing as the king or queen of Albion with control of the whole kingdom at our fingertips. Throw the possibility of Natal compatability into the mix, and you could easily imagine dismissing peasants with a flip of your hand, ordering troops into battle with a strong arm forward, or celebrating a great victory with your fist in the air. Much more fun than pressing the X button.
