In a recent interview with gamesindustry.biz, Peter Molyneux, the outspoken creator of Black and White
, gave his opinion of a territory he's relatively unfamiliar with
-- the PlayStation 3. Molyneux, whose games have appeared exclusively on PCs and Microsoft's home consoles, explained his position that the PS3 is "still waiting for that definition title that represents the platform", much like Wii Sports
has for the Wii, and how he hopes Fable 2
will for the Xbox 360. We'd probably award that honor to a certain ring-shaped shooter
, but hey, to each his own.
Molyneux tried to smooth the assuredly ruffled feathers of the PS3 camp by stating his belief that LittleBigPlanet
, whose development team was founded by former Lionhead Studios employees
, could fill that void. He goes on to sing the praises of the texturized platformer, saying that he's "incredibly proud of what they've done," and that "it's just an amazing experience to see how their game has progressed." We wonder if he can maintain his LittleBigEnthusiasm when Fable 2
compete for top honors on their shared release date of Oct. 21.
