Don't forget - it's not going to be an RPG.

Malk May 22nd, 2010 00:04

Is "this holiday" in summer or in winter?

Caddy May 22nd, 2010 00:18

Fable 1 PC and Fable 3 PC, but no Fable 2 PC? This is MADNESS! (insert 300 quote here)

JDR13 May 22nd, 2010 00:24

I'll pass on this. I don't need to play another mediocre console RPG from Peter Molyneux.

zakhal May 22nd, 2010 00:52

Sounds like ms running out of money buying exclusives for xbox.

It's winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern (for example South-Africa or Australia).

Holiday doesn't refer to vacation but to Holy Days, in other words Christmas and New Year (for the US Thanksgiving is thrown in) which comes down to Q4.

If a game is released in the summer they will probably state "Summer 2010". Ofcourse not many games have been released during that period because kids are on vacation, are playing outside or it's to hot to sit in front of a TV.

Another posibility is to state the game will be released in the FALL or in the WINTER but as said then it will be SPRING and SUMMER in the southern hemisphere. But as shown that is not a global way of saying it.

Its funny how Molyneux has once again made 180 degree turn. With fable 2 he was all xbox, and now he is coming back to pc market. My quess is that fable 1 sold better than the sequel. Its just odd why they didn't port fable 2 to pc. Not everyone likes to play on consoles.

I agree, this sounds strange

Fable 1 - yes
Fable 2 - no
Fable 3 - yes

In Binary, this would look like 101.

This is what confused me, thanks.

So dollar is worth less than a euro, but the price in euro is higher. What am I missing here?

Cute. Its still a loss of income to keep games exclusives whether they own the companies or not. This could mean that more xbox exclusives are released for pc too in future. Change of ms policy.

JemyM May 22nd, 2010 13:16

It will suck.

srabuseen May 22nd, 2010 13:32

PC or not, I will pass on this, if Natal is mandatory.

ortucis May 23rd, 2010 03:36

Making Natal mandatory will be a moronic move of epic proportions.

That's why it's not going to be.

Anderson May 23rd, 2010 03:56

Yeah, not mandatory.

That's the usual thing. ALL software in this world is ALWAYS costing more in Euro than in Dollars.
