Now MS will have more of a cohesive vision. Peter is a visionary and he will push those studios to put out content that is new and fresh. MS is making the right move by putting him in this position.

Molyneux is a genius

The one button for everything in Fable was a dumb idea.

RememberThe3573425d ago

But he was trying something. Trying to make the game more accessible. Unfortunately the combat wasn't as deep as I wanted it to be, but the game was still fun and still successful.

He is quite the visionary.

Congratulations on the promotion Mr. Molyneux as I a member of a corporate world were your name status means everything understands that this is a great step for you.

May you continue to think of genius ideas.
