Fable III: PC Version better than Xbox 360 – Regret for Early Buyers

By Alan Ng - May 17, 2011

We have some pleasing news for those of you who held off from picking up the Xbox 360 version of Fable III, as developers at Lionhead Studios have just confirmed that the upcoming PC version will be the best version of the game to own.

When speaking in an interview with website Beefjack, lead engine coder for the game Don Williamson revealed the news that is likely to be met with considerable frustration those of you with the Xbox 360 version of the game. Here is what he had to say:

“Because our artists originally authored their assets at such a high quality, removing the limits that the Xbox 360 imposed upon us immediately made the game look better (on PC). The main benefit to a PC release is to be able to see the world of Albion realised at such a high resolution.”

He also mentioned that the PC gamers will get to use a ‘fantastic 3D mode’ as well, which is another plus for the PC version of the game. The game releases on PC today in America, while it will be available everywhere else including UK and Australia at the end of the week.

For those of you who already have Fable III on the Xbox 360, what are your thoughts on his comments? Are you feeling slightly bitter that you are now in possession of an inferior game compared to the PC version?

    So you're all upset because they're "digging" at the xbox by…simply relaying factual information, ie that the xbox lacks the power of the PC. Your solution? Pick on a console that YOU don't happen to like!

    Grow. Up. Small. Child.
