Fable 4 – The Journey: Kinect exclusive?
The Fable series of fantasy games have been a staple on the Xbox since day 1. It has a huge fan base even though the series’ quality, it’s safe to say, has been quite uneven, to say the least. What keeps fans coming back is the story line and great action. However, it has been struggling, of late, to recapture the original sizzle of the early Fable version. Many fans feel they are hanging on to the series in dwindling hope that a new installment would recapture some of the faded glory of Fable.
There were some glimmers of hope when Fable 3 was released because of its cooperative game play and general improvements on Fable 2. Still, many fans were not fully satisfied because they felt the installment lacked any incentive to play again once you’ve ‘beaten’ it. The game length was also criticized. So all hopes are now turned to Fable 4 – The Journey.
However, there’s a bit of a curve ball for some long time Fable fans. Fable 4 – The Journey might be a Kinect-only exclusive. You read that correctly. Kinect only. While this is just a rumor, the Kinect exclusivity has kindled quite a bit of discussion among Fable fans online with many feeling they are ‘forced’ into Kinect. Since its hard to judge Fable 4 – The Journey before it comes out, many fans’ opinions are split on this one.
Fans have to bridge the time – Fable 4 expected in 2013
