Lionhead boss Peter Molyneux has admitted that Kinect has "some real problems as an input device" but says it excels in terms in creating freedom and emotion.
This comes after Lionhead's Fable: The Journey was demoed at E3, a game which appeared to be on rails despite Molyneux coming out later to say it isn't.
The legendary developer does, however, concede that there are issues with Kinect when it comes to navigation.
"I'll admit that Kinect has got some problems," he told Gaming Union. "As an input device it has some real problems.
"Without a thumb stick, navigation is a real problem. You haven't got any buttons, so ordering the player to do something can be somewhat of a problem. But what Kinect does have is a great sense of freedom and emotion. So that's what we've tried to do with Fable: The Journey"
Molyneux also moved to assure gamers that Fable: The Journey is a core game, following its reveal.
