Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux reckons he made a major gaff during the E3 demo of Kinect game Fable: The Journey. He wants to apologise.
During the demo, as Molyneux presented, somebody was waving his arms at the Kinect motion sensor in what looked exactly like an on-rails experience. But Molyneux forgot to say, that isn't the case at all.
He has since spent the rest of the week trying to set the record straight. He told OXM, "I made a horrendous mistake on the press demo of taking out the navigation allowing players to move. I will just say on record now that Fable: The Journey is definitely not on rails."
Conversely, journalists witnessing the behind closed doors demo of the game this week say no, it actually is on-rails. So who's telling the truth? We'll set the record straight with our preview soon.
