PC Fable III?

WorthPlaying points out a job posting for a Lionhead/Microsoft Game Studios Network Programmer that seemed to have indicated there are plans to bring Fable III to the PC and to provide cross-platform gameplay with the Xbox 360 edition of Lionhead's action/RPG sequel. That's in the past tense because the listing no longer contains the clues they noticed, but apparently at one point the listing indicated the job: "involves converting and maintaining the network code of the Xbox 360 version of this game to the PC, and enabling the Xbox 360 version and the PC version to play together." Big Download points to a post on Koku Gamer where they have a screenshot of the ad before alteration.

To sum up therad.

SR2 is awesome (agreed, but on 360 only)
GTA4 could have been as awesome.

Fable 2 is awesome (on 360 - as Fable is kind of a console game)
Fable 3 will be awesome as well.

As a "gamer" I had to buy all systems, and glad I did, as I now pick and choose which platform the game will best play on, and GTA, SR, and Fable type games, all play best on a console.

Although GTA SA with Cops and Robbers mod on PC is the shizzle!!!!!

I'm waiting for a job posting : New mouthpiece. Molyneaux has worn his out.

Nearly every 'exclusive' from Microsoft/360 eventually transposes to PC.
Having said that, it's odd that they would ship Fable 3 to PC and not Fable 2... although again now that they're bringing 3, 2 might not be far off.

At the end of the day though, this is still a rumour generated from a job posting.

I find it very hard to believe that Microsoft would release Fable 3 on both 360 and PC. After all, they have a pretty established history of trying to make everything into a 360 exclusive. Why would they change now?

Yep. And since Crash Bandicoot showed up on other platforms, Heavy Rain and Killzone 2 are coming to Xbox 360, Wii and PC as well.

Why couldnt Dice and mix platforms for Battlefield bad company 2 or even better BF3, but Fable?!?! yawn..

Personally owning the 360 version of BFBC2, part of the reason I got that version was to AVOID the aimbots and wallhacks already available on PC (and completely undetectable by Punkbuster or server admins I might add).

Fuck cross platform play for anything competitive.

SR2 was what GTA4 would have been if R* hadn't gotten all serious, and it was hilarious fun.

As for Fable 3, if it comes out on PC I'll get it on PC; if not, I'll still get it. Fable 2 was a good game in my book and I imagine 3 will be as good as it, at least. (well, I hope, anyways)

I don't think BC2 on the PC supports G4WL.

Long ago, Microsoft did announced Natal for Windows:
http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/49062/Bill-Gates-Decrees-That-PC-Shall-Also-Receive-Project-Natal

So, I think if Fable 3 comes to PC, we'll probably see it support Natal on the PC, as well.

I bet Fable 3 on the consoles does support a gamepad - namely, the 360 gamepad probably, since that is the 360's main gamepad - I cannot see why the PC version would not support that, as well.

I thought that one of the best selling points of G4WL was for designers to bring X-Play for PC and Console versions of games - I thought after Shadowrun and Lost Planet: Colonies Edition, we'd see more of that. It'd be great for Fable 3 to be on X-360 and PC - and have both be able to play together.

Though, I'd really still love to see Fable 2 come to the PC, as well. I'd buy it most definitely. I really enjoyed Fable: TLC PC - buying it the day it was released here - and would love to see more of Microsoft-published games on the PC.

While we're at it - Fable 2 and Gears 2 I would also welcome on the PC. I think Microsoft should look closely at Steam's business model, fix up G4WL, and follow suit. I think the Batman: AA PC sale from G4WL last week was great.

Fable 3 is going to be a Natal title on 360, I wonder how they're planning on incorporating that into PC.

I'd buy a trilogy package. I just need to forget it's from the studio founded by Peter Hype-To-The-Moon-And-Deliver-The-Mediocre Molyneux.

If they were to port F2 to PC, it'd still be pointless since it's a year late

Whatever man, late or not a port of Fable 2 is totally welcome on the PC. That game had some great aspects that the 360 simply didn't do justice.

I enjoyed Fable 1. But fuck you, Lionhead. No Fable 2 for PC makes Fable 3 a bit pointless. If they were to port F2 to PC, it'd still be pointless since it's a year late. Maybe the job post is for another game.
