That’s Lionhead mane man Peter Mole News, fair reader – nothing to do with partially-blind dirt dwellers (and you leave my aunty out of this anyway, she has a condition). Shacknews reports that some guy at Lionhead says that there’s currently no port of Fable 2 in a suitable deep-water harbour and that the district governers will tell us if that situation ever changes. What a coincidence it is that people who make games so often feel uncertain as to whether or not they’ll release a PC-port until the console sales start to dry up.
It doesn’t seem long ago that some guy at Rockstar was saying “As for GTAIV coming out on the PC, that’s very doubtful” and Bioware couldn’t “officially confirm” Mass Effect‘s thinkotron incarnation. It’s forgiveable though – the decision to inform the game-buying public whether or not to shell out potentially an extra £10 for a game or to wait for a cheaper and better varient is a difficult one. Executives will lie awake at night, wrecked by anxiety, staring into their bathroom mirrors, into the abyss. Protitable, deceptive, understandable.
