Molyneux: Natal Support, Microtransactions For Fable III

Lionhead's Peter Molyneux has confirmed that Fable III will support Microsoft's upcoming Project Natal add-on for Xbox 360, and also says the game will feature a microtransactions-driven in-game item shop.
Lionhead's Peter Molyneux, one of the biggest proponents of Microsoft's Project Natal and a pivotal part of the sensor tech's unveiling presentation, has confirmed that Fable III will support the gesture-recognition interface. At a BAFTA event last night hosted by Eurogamer, Molyneux also said he's planning a cash shop for the game, where users can purchase weapons and upgrades via in-game microtransactions, reports GamesIndustry.biz. Although Molyneux said the details of many of the proposed features for the game are still under consideration, he also suggested that the cash shop could sell walkthroughs. At E3 this year, Molyneux unveiled a demo of an AI called "Milo," as a concept presentation showcasing the possibilities for Natal and the work Lionhead has been doing with the technology. The designer is known for his interest in lifelike character interactions, and is often vocal on his visions.
