Peter Molyneux shits on Fable III to look humble again

We've talked about the Molyneux Cycle before, and I'm thrilled to report that it's back in full effect once more! With Fable: The Journey coming up, Molyneux has continued his tactic of downplaying the last overhyped game in order to further hype the next. 

"It's hard to be completely honest without offending people; but I know, when I read in the middle of a review that said the quality just wasn't good enough, I actually agree with those reviews," he said, keeping the Cycle going with elegant efficiency. "I think Lionhead can't afford to rest on its laurels of its fans and produce low-quality stuff.

"We have lots of excuses, as you always do have excuses; but I don't think that's good enough. For consumers, it's very simple: there's a bright light here, and there's an even brighter light there. They're going to go towards the even brighter light -- and why shouldn't they? You just can't sit on your hands and say, 'Well, we know how to do it. It's Fable, so that's the way we do it.' You just can't do that."

Brilliant. Can't wait for him to tell us that Fable: The Journey really was on rails two months after it comes out.
