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.

Beats me ;p To earn money i guess, but seeing as they didn't want to do that with Fable 2 but now "rumors" how they want to do this with fable 3... thats just odd. Are they deciding this randomly?

Fable is just one of those games that is way more fun than it rightfully deserves to be. It's like the Saints Row 2 of adventure RPG games.

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.

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'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.

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

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.

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 don't think BC2 on the PC supports G4WL.

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)
