Fable III will not have Kinect support at launch

Fable 3 no Kinect support at launch confirmed. Releases October 26, 2010 on Xbox 360
Fable III will not be supporting Kinect on day one according to Peter Molyneux’s Engadget Show appearance, in which he revealed that the game will not support the upcoming motion device upon launch.

The game will be released on October 26, 2010.

This will come as somewhat of a huge blow to the Kinect device, which will now lack any real hardcore titles of the action, adventure, RPG, FPS, etc. genres beyond MTV’s “Dance Central”. Which in itself would be considered a more casual affair aimed at the mainstream.

So what do you guys think about this news? Has Kinect completely fallen off the radar as far as you are concerned or will you still be looking into the device come holiday?

I guess we’ll have to wait and see, but I’d assume that Kinect support in Fable III will now come from a later DLC update or the like.

Here is the game’s opening cinematic.
