Fable III PC Delayed, Villager Maker Launched

Fable III is no longer planned for a simultaneous October 26 release on PC and Xbox 360, reports IGN, where they say the PC edition has suffered a delay of undetermined length. "The console and PC versions are now on different schedules as we're focusing on building experiences optimized for each platform," reads a statement from Microsoft Game Studios. "We aren't announcing a ship date for the PC sku at this time, but expect news soon." On a related note, MS Game Studios announces the launch of the Fable III Villager Maker, which will allow those who preorder the upcoming RPG sequel to design their own villager for the game. Word is: "Great heroes of the past and present all know one thing is true: the revolution starts with you. That’s why Microsoft and Lionhead Studios are giving fans the chance to get into the action now before “Fable III” launches on October 29th. With the all-new character creator tool, called the “Fable III” Villager Maker, fans who pre-order the game can create and bring their personalised villager to life. Your custom in-game villager will deliver to your hero a thrilling new quest and 1,000 gold fortune, and then continue to interact with you on your journey to become ruler of Albion." The YouTube also now offers a Villager Maker Tutorial.

When the PC version makes as much money as the Xbox versions then I'm sure it will receive similar attention. Of course this is kind of a chicken and egg thing but unfortunately the publishers won't budge.

The PC versions will never make more than consoles though. I think that is the point. It isn't a matter of chicken and egg so much as it is a matter of reality. The PC can still sell a helluva lot of copies even so. Bioware went from delayed release with Mass Effect to simultaneous release with ME2 and got great sales.

The console audience is simply larger and more likely to buy things. Not because of piracy...but because what else are you going to do with your console but play games on it? I can not play games on my PC and still find it perfectly useful for a bunch of other things.

The two audiences are very different in tastes and trends in a lot of ways. Of course, no one is trying to even understand that anymore, so why bother?
