Game designer - and Microsoft employee - Peter Molyneux said in an interview with GamesIndustryBiz
that the PlayStation 3 is still waiting for a game that defines the platform and sets it apart from its competitors.
"Nintendo did a brilliant job of doing that at launch with games like Wii Sports
and Wii Play
- maybe Fable 2
is a defining title," said the proud father of the upcoming Lionhead
RPG who admitted to not being tremendously objective when referring to Fable 2
Molyneux then stated the PS3-exclusive LittleBigPlanet
, which launches a week after Fable 2
, has the potential to be a defining title. "I'm incredibly proud of what they've done, and it's just an amazing experience to see how their game has progressed," he said of the Media Molecule developers who are mostly made up of former Lionhead staff.
Sorry flame war lovers, Molyneux just ended classy on y'all!
