Molyneux teases Xbox 720 involvement as Curiosity draws to a close

There are now 50 layers left on 22 Cans' enigmatic Curiosity - what's inside the cube. As of 16:22 BST/08:22 PDT today, a countdown timer will now appear in the game saying what the predicted end date for the quirky long-running experiment actually is--and how close one person is from unlocking what creator Peter Molyneux calls its "life changing" contents. (Mobile, Peter Molyneux, Xbox One)

So, its been an ad for Xbox3 all this time? An Ad that people pay for?

Where are you getting that from? Coincidence is a funny little thing that can make even the most level headed person flip.

It was a guy on the grassy knoll ;)

Curiosity is free...
ichimaru  +   891d ago
It's very free. extremely free.
Godmars290  +   891d ago
Is that why you can apparently pay to add layers to it? Get tools?

And whether or not its free doesn't mean that it might have been an advertising stunt. In fact being free would lean more towards such in fact.

Still wouldn't make any sense...

? I'm not gathering your intended point here mars. Can you pay to add more to the app? absolutely, in fact I can't think of a single app on my phone or tablet that doesn't offer a paid peripheral or feature. Lol it's a cell phone app bro, it's not that deep. You think its dumb or some elaborate conspiracy scheme, I think its a fun yet curious waste of free time. lets leave it there

This guy hasn't made a good game since black and white and fable 1
Jek_Porkins  +   891d ago
As someone who bought Fable 1 at launch, and enjoyed it very much, I have to disagree. I remember people hating on Fable because it didn't live up to all the hype, but was still a great game. Fable 2 won a ton of GOTY awards, including X-Play's GOTY award, I loved the game very much.

Fable 3 was obviously rushed, but still offered some fun, and has actually gone on to sell rather well.

He doesn't work for Microsoft anymore, and I kind of doubt he'd be at the reveal because of that fact.

I believe Fable 2 was a good game also, but the fact it didn't live up to that hype is why it was a disappointment. Being between the great RPG Fable, Lost Chapters was great, and the, what I felt, extremely short Fable 3 made people focus on those two installments which left Fable 2 as the bland middle child.

I sincerely hope they can properly revive this franchise. Fable Journey doesn't count as an installment, it is an abomination.

Fable 1 got bashed not for being a bad game but a REALLY short game. I have always enjoyed the Fable games, but they nothing ground breaking to say the least. I think Black and White was by far his best game.
Jek_Porkins  +   891d ago
The more developers the better, no matter what the guy has done some quality work, Black And White and the first two Fables are amazing games.

I doubt he does anything with Microsoft though, considering he was most likely let go, I like Kinect and some of those things as much as the next guy, but I think ol' Petey wanted that on everything, and it just doesn't work on everything.

Anyone found the headline a little ironic? No? Yea me either..
LOL_WUT  +   891d ago
Just another way for him to get exposure I guess ;)

The guy is a joke, an ensnarement to the gaming industry.
Skate-AK  +   891d ago
I'm ensnared you would make that mistake.
portal_2  +   890d ago
I agree, firefox spelling for ya.
abzdine  +   891d ago
so i'm expecting a 30min speach and a tech demo once again...

He sounded like he was making so much of those Godus features up as the guy asked questions haha

Actually I think he made a good point about the Kinect (and by extension the Move and all that). People expect immediate gratification, but humans aren't machines, it's difficult to be creative when you're harried by deadlines and budgets. You can't expect developers to get the absolute most out of the Kinect and Move technology as soon as it comes out, and dooming them because they don't is only going to sever the technology from any of the future potential it might have.

I think gamers these days act WAY too entitled and it's seriously effecting the industry. Lots of good ideas get virulently shot down and rabidly execrated by the consumers because of this sense of entitlement. This is probably part of the reason why games are so damn crap these days- consumers are berating too much and demanding more of the same, and are partly responsible for the creative slump. Of course it's not all gamers- it's a two way street. The industry doesn't take any risks because of this (how else can it make money?) and just churns out crap. Games are juvenile and everyone involved and everybody involved is to blame. Encourage creativity and boundary pushing in games- stop demanding loads of guns and violence and tits and psuedo-mature stuff. Get critical and understand how juvenile most games really are and then they can finally pick up the slack.

I like his attitude however;

Anyone else tired of great visions and under performing execution of those visions?
