NowGamer speaks with Peter Molyneux about Kinect and Fable III.
He looks like Yellow Bastard from Sin City. They're both into small boys.
How old is he? I am guess he is old enough to know a thing called EYETOY? :P That happened well under 10 years let alone 20 years! :)
Peter Molyneux is to developers what Patcher is to analysts. A "cant-keep-my-mouth-shut- because-Im-an-attention- whore" type of person. I like his games but I dont like the character he plays in the media.
Molyneux: Kinect 'Biggest Innovation In 20 Years' LOL yeah right the EyeToy on PS2 is more fun than this laggy .... EDIT: Even the Nintendo 3DS is a bigger innovation than this
he knows its going down the platform has hit a huge rock,the holes are glaringly obvious which is letting in the waves of frustration from the gamers onboard , but in his loyalty he decides to keep playing his tune to the end playing while everyone else is running around him jumping off the sinking ship sad to say if gears goes multi after the trilogy deal with ms is finished im jumping into a ps3 life raft also
Watch, once Kinect is behind us, he will bash the crap out of it like he does every game he's ever been a part of.
if it is the biggest then why didn't you put it in fable?? personally i am not sure what is the best innovation.. nothing really comes to mind..
...and even better avatar name lmao!
from Peter. He is a MS paid employee after all.
Coming from the biggest bser that hypes his games yet doesn't deliver. Nice job molyneux. Funny comment from him though. In my eyes, Kinect is the biggest innovation that fails, will fail, has failed to deliver.
That Fable 3 will not support it ........ nuff said
Fable 3 will support Kinect features post launch....so what are you taking about?
And even it was going to be, it would probably just be for the pub games, or other mini games, not going to be part of the main gamplay, but Ive been wrong before.
Yeah, Blaze... just like he delivered on all of his past promises. This coming from the same guy who said his last game, fable2 could have been made by children. This guy is all talk.
it's because Fable 3 can't handle the Kinect awesomeness ;) - http://www.alakhnor.com/pos...
Hahaha, he does look like the Yellow Bastard. I kinda doubt he really believes that. He's gotta toe the line. He is a subsidiary of Microsoft, after all.
Dam you FangBlade, i have just bought a new pair of jeans and i spat out my coffee over them laughing at that Sin City jape. Great stuff. Every time i see a pic of him now i will just about p!$$ myself thinking about your analogy.
LOL at Molyneux. I guess he was sleeping last 20 years then.
It's Molyneux he's basically a MS puppet, I'm not surprised by his comments. All he ever seems to talk about is how great the xbox 360 is.
He's head of EU MS devs.
The real statement: "I think for certain people in the industry [Kinect] is the most wonderful thing that’s happened in the last 20 years, but for others it's the worst." Certain. People. Certain. People. **Looks at 360 trolls on N4G. Certain. People. Certain. People. -End statement
Instead of complaining about the trolls, you SHOULD be complaining about the title. -_-
I meant "Certain People" = "360 trolls in N4G". -End statement
really ? bigger than the wii,ds eyetoy, online gaming ? wow how much is microsoft paying you ?
Then he should have put Fable on rails like the Harry Potter game and made it Kinect compatible. What a moron.
We'll see. That's all that can honestly be said at this point. It may be meh now but it could be mind blowing a year from now. I'll at least give it the benefit of the doubt.
... as of now, only Dance Central and some of the Fitness-stuff seems to be stuff that would work well with it... However, for actual games, I think most of it will be worthless shovelware. Now, I know my girlfriend will LOVE the fitness stuff and the Dance Central. However, for 150 euro, I sure as hell am not going to buy it, and neither will she. I bet that fall 2011 Kinect will be down to 50 bucks. I'm sure that technically it's great and a big step forward. However, nothing has been shown REALLY that makes me think it will be worth 150 bucks for ME.
and thats when i will purchase it...... but there wont be any Day one shenanigans for me
I totally agree.It will be the best system for Dance games but are we now supposed to consider them a major genre.They've been niche for years.
That's it... just wait. No proof of a decent concept, no games in early stages, just wait.
Just let them buy it, at least we're not the ones who are gonna regret it. I'll just wait here and laugh my socks off when they how useless Kinect is for real games.
Molyneux is all on his own on that 1
getting ppl to pay 4 more faulty hardware would be HIGHLY innovative.
I was under the impression you would buy Kinect because of Milo......joke :)
STANDARDS - PEDROBEAR HAS THEM i already have a dead 360, dont need to add to the collection
"I'm going to be honest with you, most of what you'll see is a trick." Yeah, great way to show us this FANTASTIC INNOVATION!
Its cool to bash isnt it? Might as well join the herd then. "Yeah, Kinect is so FAIL!! Peter M is a Pedo!!" How did I do guys, how did I do?
Its fine. But if were talking Open Zone standards, that's kinda weak I must say. :D
Well I tried, Im just not used to all this Hate. Ill keep trying though ;)
not convincing - i could tell your heart was not in it. Play 8 hrs of god of war and try again Point added for avatar - the wire was awesome
Ill run through God of War again tonight then, see if Kratos can put some fire in my belly. The Wire is the best TV programme ever. And thats a Fact!!
in the face trought tcp/ip connection just this once
Kinect is microsofts biggest innovation in 20 years coming from a company not usually known for innovating much
i like the idea of kinnect, but the tech is way to green at the moment.
"Welcome to the Kinect tutorial. You can't do anything." Pete, stop hyping things!
In 1 maybe 2 years time, Peter Molyneux will quote: "Kinect biggest dissapointment of previous gen" Because we all know how often Molyneux changes his mind... LOL
Peter Molyneux You should be ashamed of yourself. You are pushing a technology that does not work correctly trying to influence people buying a product that not very good. Lagnect as it's known should have been cancelled alot earlier.
"Molyneux: Kinect 'Biggest Innovation In 20 Years'" And that is why he never thought of putting it in Fable3.
For me is: "Kinect is biggest fail in 20 years".
sure..anything you say PM, we all know how you never overpromise and under deliver... cant get Kin to work with Fable .. choke, choke (at least not this year) now show me something that would make me think about buying this fabulous technology... and reduce the price... and I will buy one for my 360
but.. not only was there the eyetoy like 10 years ago? but everyone has a webcam? lol
I'm not blaming N4G for this one though. This is taken straight from the article: "Fable creator Peter Molyneux explained, "I think for certain people in the industry [Kinect] is the most wonderful thing that’s happened in the last 20 years, but for others it’s the worst."" It looks like a modest(and true) statement in my eyes. How the hell does that translate to "the biggest innovation in 20 years"?
well the website did its job by making a eye catching title that they knew would make ppl click the link. the title is misleading and looks to misquoted all for the sake of getting hits on the site how lame
this is a big problem with this site.. CONSTRUCTIVELY, articles like this should NOT be approved or should be removed asap...sensationalized and false headlines by sites should not be allowed...
ummmmmmmmmm eyetoy says hello, idiot.
Nothing beats a little comedy with my morning coffee!
Fucking funny I'm cracking up at your comment cause i'm imagining your avatar saying that.
The biggest innovation of the past 20 years is in my pants. It's called a wallet.
In the last years, except launching a new Fable every 2 or 3 years (which are ok but not spectacular), he spent his time promoting Microsoft and the 360. he must be widely paid ! Take the guys from bungie, IW, ND or insomniac : they're making amazing games. and that's there job. they're not saying bs to consumers to buy their crap. they're working. that's what Molyneux should do.
I do like Fable but this guy should never speak.
haha this guy always talk big but does he deliver? That is the question!
Did Microsft buy this crappy stuff ;) so it does not innovative product, remember PS eytoy :) Way to go Sony with the move, the real hardcore for people who wants to play move with Killzone 3 :)
. if so then Ps2 EYETOY Camera must be the biggest innovation in 100 years since kinect is nothing but a dodgy COPY. LoL
Can someone tell me the innovation he's refering to that happened 20 years ago?
Peter never said the word "innovation". This is his direct quote: "I think for certain people in the industry [Kinect] is the most wonderful thing that’s happened in the last 20 years, but for others it’s the worst." --- Firstly, Kinect is not innovative, it's an evolved Eyetoy. Similar to how the PS Move is an evolved Wii-mote. The actual appalling part of this article isn't Peter's comment (which is quite fair as he addresses both sides of the opinion spectrum), but rather Now Gamer's misquoted, flame-bait title. Why are 'professional' publications doing this? Oh yeah, for hits...
A bubble and an agree for you. It's nice to see people who actually understand how journalism (not avid gamers)are supposed to report the news. Between the rampant fake headlines, misleading, poorly written articles and my favorite "I'm better than you because I'm European" comments, I don't even know why I bother with this site.
Thanks for posting his direct quote... it actually sounds more stupid in his own words. The most wonderful thing in the industry in 20 years? I mean - how do you even comment on such a deluded idiotic statement. But one that I can agree with - it is going to be wonderful for their competitors. I can understand it is his job to spin PR, but just wow. Move is beating Kinect in every remotely head to head comparison. Kinect is comparable to a webcam in terms of what it enables in games and that is wonderful? At $150? Just wow.
