Fable 3 - PC launch confirmed

[html]<a href="http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/vi ... r-PC"><img src="http://www.escapistmagazine.com/images/ ... /62885.jpg" align="right" style="margin-left: 16px; border: none;" /></a>[/html]Though I'm not sure as how much of an RPG it counts anymore, according to Peter Molyneux [url=http://www.computerandvideogames.com/ar ... 7:24u14cxt]it isn't one[/url:24u14cxt], though I'd post it anyway.

It has been confirmed that [url=http://uk.gamespot.com/news/6263210.html:24u14cxt]Fable 3 will be released for PC[/url:24u14cxt]. The game is set to be released before Christmas this year on consoles (and I'm assuming that the same goes for the PC version, though I haven't heard anything on that yet). And it's set to cost [html]&pound;[/html]39.99/$49.99/[html]&euro;[/html]54.99.

The digital version of the game will only be available through Games for Windows Live (i.e. no Steam/Direct2Drive/Impulse/etc).

Considering that and considering what a disappointment the first Fable was (in pretty much every way imaginable), and considering that Fable 2 isn't on PC and thus it would feel like only reading the first and third part of a trilogy while skipping the second, I'll probably pass on this one unless the reviews around release convince me otherwise.

The biggest question though is how the PC version will deal with [url=http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/vi ... d:24u14cxt]the Natal elements of the game[/url:24u14cxt]. Either Natal is coming to PC too (which I'd expect to hear more on during this year's E3) or they're ripping out those parts for PC. I guess we'll have to see.
