Lionhead Studio boss Peter Molyneux has stated he hates "what controllers do to magic".
In a recent event held in Barcelona, the creator of the Fable series described the affect Kinect will have on the gameplay, stating it would be of critical importance that Kinect can be used while sitting down.
"If I want to tell the most amazing tale in the Fable saga, you need to be relaxed," he said. "That's the most amazing thing about Fable The Journey, you can sit down and enjoy it."
"We have spent a huge amount of time creating this horse and carriage simulation for Fable The Journey. We have a flexible control system, and the horse is one of the most wonderful things we have ever created. We're giving you 300 miles to explore on your horse and carriage across Albion. And we have off-horse navigation, and it works fine.
"And the game has magic powers. I hate what controllers do to magic. They predetermine magic into a button. We want to give you the ability to weave magic like never before. Magic is created with your hands. You can pull it, you can stretch it, you can spin it, you can shoot it, you can make spears and hammers and fishing rods with it."
Fable: The Journey is set for release in 2012.
